Have Food Backups in the Pantry

To make sure I always have a back up of certain items I try to buy two of them when I can and then put the extra into the pantry area and forget about it. When I can't spend too much on groceries for some reason. Like an unexpected car expense, a birthday or a bill that was forgotten I always have the extra items I can count on.

Rosemary, that's a great idea, but I wanted to add this: watch for specials at your local stores. When an item you use (in the brand you prefer) goes on special, buy lots of it. If the store is out of the item ask for a rain check. Where I live most stores will give you one, and they honor the "special" price after they've been restocked.

An added bonus: you will have food available during weather emergencies, car trouble, illness, or during other times when it is difficult to get to the grocery store!
