My Pantry Staples

If you’re reworking your pantry storage or you want to stock your pantry for more than just your weekly grocery visits, here is a list that includes basic pantry staples that everyone should have.

Stocking your pantry with basic kitchen staples is a great way to always keep some basic ingredients on hand. That way, cooking and meal planning becomes much easier and enjoyable.

You may not need everything, and your pantry essential list should always be customized to what you eat. Also, it is good to keep in mind that almost every food has a shelf life – so I definitely don’t recommend stocking too much because some may go to waste before you can even make use of it.

Here is a list of my favorite pantry staples I think every kitchen needs. Please click on the following images to be redirected to, where you can purchase them.
