1. If you’re limited on space, avoid filling your space with specialty items or sweets and treats. Focus on staple items/necessities.
2. If you’re limited on funds, simply add a few items to each future grocery order. Especially when it comes to canned goods, this can mean as little as an additional $1.50 – $5.00 per order.
1. Canned vegetables 2. Canned fruit 3. Canned beans 4. Canned tomatoes/Rotel
Next up, jarred items that can be stored for several months – just like those canned goods! 1. Pasta sauce 2. Pizza sauce 3. Salsa
Next up, what about dry goods? 1. Dried fruit 2. Coffee / tea 3. Cereal 4. Oats 5. Granola
What about items your family might use for baking in addition to keeping your typical baking staples on hand: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, yeast, etc.
