Step 1: Go through each meal and think about all of the ingredients you will need.
Write down each ingredient. As other meals require the same ingredient, make tallies to show how many of each item you need. These are the items you will need in order to make healthy dinners for the entire month.
Step 2: Figure out breakfasts, lunches, and snacks.
Obviously, you aren’t going to survive off of dinner alone so add items to the shopping list that will fill in breakfasts, lunches, and snacks.I suggest a huge container of quick oats for breakfast and/or cereal that you can buy in bulk. We had lunch meat and cheese for sandwiches and a few fruits and yogurt that we added to our list. I also bought hot dogs because they were on sale and made homemade corndog muffins that were easy to grab and go. Try to think of breakfasts and lunches you can make because the more processed and packaged something is, the more it is going to cost you. Many of the items that are on your dinner grocery list will help out in this department (such as eggs, bread, etc.)
Step 3: Smile because you are ready to Shop your Pantry, Organize Your Food, and Stop Wasting!
