As you can see…once you begin to stock your pantry with your basic necessities your shopping list begins to change. No longer is the list filled with the basic items. It is now predominantly sale items.

Imagine me trying to feed my family this week with just the items from this list and no stock pile…we’d starve. But because I have plenty of veggies, sides, juice and household items I don’t need to devote money to those items.
