What is in a well stocked pantry?
Like so many of the rest of of you TKOs, I am living out of boxes while we are redoing the kitchen. I have been reading and re-reading threads about pantry and spice organization, etc.
I am a recovering stockpiler. I used to keep no less than 6 boxes of cereal in the house at any time. BOGO, make that buy 3 get 3 for my household. We are trying to eat cleaner and have less waste now, so when I put things back in my new kitchen, I want to make sure it is worth the storage space. I am sure this will vary due to how often and what one likes to cook, but what are your pantry essentials, how much do you keep, and how do you store it?
For example, I plan to keep dried beans and rice, and other whole grains in glass containers in my pantry with chalkboard labels.
Please share what are your pantry essentials.
