Stocking the Holiday Pantry ~ Giving Thanks

Canisters
Grocery stores have great sales on holiday baking staples right now, so this is a great time to stock up. Take a look at the recipes you know you will be preparing, and make a master list of the ingredients. Keep the list in your purse, along with any coupons, so each time you go to the grocery store, you are prepared. By purchasing a few items each week, you won't break your budget!

Great list! The only thing I would add is chocolate bark! I use pounds of it for candy making and I have found that groceries run out!

I love your beautiful canisters - we have them at our Wal-Mart also.

Excellent list! I don't know about you, but I get a lot of satisfaction from the sight of a well stocked pantry, regardless of how large or small it is!

Great idea to post a list for us to check off. There is nothing worse than being in the middle of a project and realizing that you have run out of something.

Hi Kelli. Very good list. I would use that list, plus I would add the graham type pie crusts. You know, the easy ones.:) My home is an older type home and the 3rd bedroom is adjacent to the kitchen and the washroom. I took that 3rd bedroom and made it into a walk in pantry. Works out great. Thx for sharing and have a great day.
