How many times have you gone to the grocery story with what you want to cook on your mind but you can’t remember what you have at home? Or pinned a ton of new fun recipes and head straight to the store and end up buying duplicates of spices, seasonings and broths? Me! I have!
I love to plan our my menu a week a head of time but I can’t tell you how many times I just write down everything that I need buy for every recipe and realize that I spent a ton of money on things that I already have. So recently I’ve been trying to find a way to keep that organized. I made a “master list” of the basics that you need in your kitchen for any meal. And on that list it has a number of how many I have, when I use one up or it’s getting low I make a mark on my list and check it every time I go to the grocery store. It has saved me from having 3 shakers of garlic powder in one cabinet, it’s saved money since I’m not just buying it just in case, and it’s saved time because now I have a little list of what I have in my kitchen.
So I’ve made my master list available to you. Now you may need things on your master list that I don’t have on mine and with this file you are able to change it and make it custom to you. I have one list printed out and hung in my cabinet and one also saved on my phone so that I can constantly update it.
↑ This is just a sample PDF of what the list looks like
↑ This is an Excel Worksheet that you can save to your computer or your phone. You can edit the supply list or how many items that you have at anytime.
I hope that you are able to enjoy and benefit from this list as much as we have.
