Smart Foods to Keep on Hand

Smart Shopping : Foods to Keep On Hand

Keeping some extra food items in your cupboard can help you prepare meals when you can’t get to the store or you are short on money…


    • You don’t have to buy this food all at once. Simply add ONE extra item each time you do your regular shopping. Soon you’ll have a healthy stock of meals to fall back on.


    • The food you buy shouldn’t be expensive. Take advantage of store specials, coupons, and store brands. You can make many meals from the basic food in your cupboard.
