Shopping & Organization

I have found over the years that making a shopping list is VERY important on a budget or just because it's easier. Each week I make a menu of the week’s dinners, what I need for lunches, breakfast, and snacks. This saves from duplication and an unending supply of ITEMS ON SALE.
Living in a Tin Can I can't buy much in bulk so I try to be VERY frugal.

My cabinets are organized and I have some bulk items in buckets like flour and sugar. Living in a humid area and surrounded by possible Sugar Ants and Red Ants I put all my bags of noodles, cookies, crackers,syrup,honey, cereal....anything from a bag or box in plastic containers or large sealed bags.
Here is my way of organizing. Thank goodness for those plastic wire stackables and buckets.
