    Thanks for the list. I can print it and tape it to the inside of my pantry door. Then when I am running low u can just circle it and grab the list before I run to the store. No more forgotten items!

      You gave me a great idea, Bekki! I should make a printable so people can have a nice copy to hang up and refer to before they head to the store! Thanks!

    Thanks for the list! I’m going to turn it into a shopping list that I can check mark what I need to buy as its running out. I’m always having to run to the store for something.

    This list has a lot of variety! Looks like I’d love having dinner at your house! We have the same taste in a lot of things. Especially the spices and herbs, makes everything much more flavor-able!

    This is SO HELPFUL! I’m going to use it as a base to get myself stocked up. Thank you so much! These are great essentials that everyone should have.
