printable: grocery staples checklist
We have this game that we play at my house. It's called "See how long we can go without going to the grocery store." I suppose that's not really a game, but we do make a challenge out of it. You see, most of us have certain items that they just keep on hand or have extras of, or even things pushed to the back of the pantry, and you can put together some great meals with those!
But then there are the items that you really, really need to have on hand at all times or you'll be stuck. And that's where this printable checklist comes in. You write in the items that you need a stock of, and mark it down as you use them. That way you can see in one spot when you're getting close to the end of an item.
The PDF of this list is set up so you can type in your own staples (you know, in case your needs are different from the needs of my family!). Of course, you can also write them in my hand on your printed page. If you plan on updating your list regularly, print them as you need them. If your staples remain the same, how about laminating the list and using a wipe-off marker?
As you use the staples, mark out the numbers so that the first open number is how many you have of the item (or how full a canister is). (I see you looking at that photo above...and yes, sometimes we do have 3 gallons of milk in our refrigerator!)
I want to thank Cécile for this lovely idea! If you have a printable that you'd like to see here on the blog, let me know! I might just be able to make it happen!
