What To Stock In Your Pantry

pexels-photo.jpgI’m old-fashioned in that I believe everyone should have a well-stocked pantry.  This doesn’t mean that you should have every item on every pantry list that you see.  But, it means you should have the basics to some level.  And, you need a system for it.  I like to keep my foodstuff in the pantry along with all of the appliances and other items I need when not in use.  For example, spring form pie pans are in my pantry because I don’t want them taking up valuable real estate in my kitchen.

So, what kinds of things does someone need in a pantry?  Here are some ideas:

  • Baking Goods
