Secrets of Success

Create A Pantry



When we built onto our current home, I insisted on a walk-in pantry. I stock up on sale items and store them by purchase date. Coffee, for example, is said to be going to cost more soon, so I bought 6 bags of our favorite brand today. We'll use that much in 3 months. Get it while it's still "cheap". When I didn't have a pantry, I created one out of a large donated pie safe. A neighbor had shelves built in behind her staircase. Stock up now!

  • I try to buy 4-6 of each type of grocery sale item that my family uses whenever they go on sale. I also try to buy 2-4 paper good or toiletry sale items. During the summer, I also try to estimate the amounts of school supplies that could be used as household office supplies and buy enough for the year. If we have a current coupon for an item, it's a bonus. - by DEWEYGAL
