Pantry Essentials | A Shopping Guide

March 14, 2019

I’ve got dreams to pursue and the last thing that I’m going to let get in the way is not having what I need to nourish my family. There is not a need anymore to spend too much time at the grocery store. Leave that for the days you feel really creative! For the weekly routine to be simplified, and your goals on track, time management is everything! Last week I shared tips on how to keep grocery shopping easy. This week I’m sharing what I keep stocked in the pantry to keep those grocery trips easier and to keep my family fed on the busiest of days!

Most of my shopping I pick up or have delivered to save time. You can see more about these services in my grocery shopping guide. I also use Amazon for the essentials of the dry goods that I always keep stocked in the pantry. Below you will find a visual shopping guide for those items with clickable links for easy ordering. You can set these items up on the Amazon Subscribe and Save program so that you don’t have to think about them, they just come to your doorstep!


Our family eats gluten-free most of the time so we have scoped out many choices that work for this. We keep flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, etc. along with a variety of spices, salt, pepper, and other oils. This list is the essential pantry shopping guide, ingredients that will keep you from being hungry or stressed on those nights when you are low on groceries. I will continuously add to this list so stay tuned here for helpful tips.
