Shopping for your pantry

This idea on how to stock up your pantry was originally given to us by a reader. On each shopping expedition she would buy one extra item. She made sure that the something extra that she bought was a heavily discounted special – something that was a real bargain. It could be anything from a packet of tea, dried fruit, a tin of spaghetti to something expensive – depending on her budget for that week. Each week that one item was added to her pantry. It didn’t take long before the pantry was bursting with heavily discounted goodies purchased at the lowest possible price.
