If you’re like me, you’re trying to visit the grocery store or order groceries as little as possible! My goal is to limit buying groceries to every 2 to 3 weeks and keep my kitchen stocked with versatile basic kitchen foods. There are two people in my home (my husband and me) and we eat almost all meals at home. We have one average sized refrigerator / freezer. Larger families may shop more often if they don’t have extra refrigerator/freezer space. However, this list of basic kitchen foods and tips should help most people avoid extra trips to the grocery store during the week.
Following are some basics in my cupboard, fridge and freezer that will mix and match into many meals. Several of the refrigerator foods are chosen because they will maintain their quality and safety longer than others.
