Listed: Pantry Essentials – How to Keep A Well-Stocked Pantry

October is the perfect time to start spring cleaning. This is exactly what I did over the weekend and came to find that my pantry is running vitally low on a few essentials.

Usually, I am on top of my pantry and never running low, but since we have moved, my storage situation is so different. Before we had a full-length pantry and it was glorious, now our space is just a long narrow cupboard.

The new space makes it hard for me to see what I am running low on. It is rather irritating, which is why I have come up with a helpful list.


It is a dream to have a walk-in pantry where everything is lined up and organised. I also want all glass storage and thanks to WestPack, that is slowly happening.


So here we go, below is a list of every basic pantry item to keep for basic recipes plus ideal quantities. Once you get yours up to scratch, you will be able to keep on top of it so you never run out of anything again.
