Packing pantry staples for long distance move
I hope this is the right forum for this question. In six weeks -- yikes -- we are moving half way across the country. We are driving to our new home and will meet the moving van there. Our drive will be 3 days with stops, and the moving van will arrive a couple of days later.
I am wondering about pantry staples --flour, sugar, spices, pasta, cannned soup, etc. I am trying to use these things up, but if I have significant quantities left I hate to just pitch them. I know I can donate unopened items to a food bank, but if they are unopened, I could also take them with. In these tight times, I think of staples as a capital investment.
I would appreciate any thoughts or advice you might have. Thanks
