You can save on pantry items, especially healthier choices such as Kashi products and granola snacks by going to odd lots/big lots. They even carry some the these more expensive healthier choices in bulk for cheap! Just know that they don't always carry the same products, but you can always find some great food items.

I started with my pantry. 1. Took everything out of pantry 2. Threw out all out-dated food items 3. Put items I never use and never would use in giveaway box. 4. Painted pantry shelves white (makes items easy to see) 5. Put items I use the often in the most handy place. 6. Put rest of items in place. Nothing like a clean pantry. Much easier to find what I needed.306
Every year in mid October I make a list of the extra pantry items I will need for my Thanksgiving & Christmas baking and cooking. I then will buy something on this list when I do my weekly shopping. I then put the items in a storage container, which I keep in my pantry. This way I have what I need in one place and will be sure to have what I need on hand when I do my baking and cooking.
