Store cupboard – stock pile!

Store cupboard – stock pile!

I try to keep my cupboards stocked up so that when I’m skint I have stuff in there to make a meal.  Here’s a list of the things that I try and keep stocked up on.

Store Cupboard

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Mixed herbs
  • Plain flour
  • Self raising flour
  • Baking powder
  • Bicarbonate of soda
  • Stock cubes, beef & chicken
  • Tomato puree
  • Passata/tinned tomatoes
  • Red lentils
  • Dried pasta
  • Rice
  • Baked Beans
  • Dried cannellini beans
  • Dried pearl barley
  • Sugar

Fridge Items

  • Large tub of margarine for cooking and baking
  • Eggs
  • Cheese

Other Items

  • Potatoes – I don’t buy my spuds from the supermarket.  I buy a 25kg sack of spuds.  The last sack I bought cost £6. So cheap and you can make so many meals with potatoes.
  • Onions – again I buy these by the net.  I paid £3 for 10kg of onions
