Friends, before you head to the grocery store this week check your food and household products inventory. Failing to take stock of your inventory can cost you money. There are staples that we go through regularly at my house. I always keep a surplus of brown rice, whole wheat pasta, pasta sauce and canned tomatoes and paper products. I automatically buy them each week when I go shopping. There have been times that I have duplicated items or left item off my list because I failed to take inventory. By knowing what you need to replace before leaving home will cut out unnecessary and wasteful spending as well as an extra trip back to the store. For now happy shopping!
