For the first time in my adult life, my pantry at home is somewhat stocked. When I married the man of my dreams in December and we moved into our new apartment, he brought over boxes of food and non-perishables.
I've never had a stocked pantry away from my parents. I usually buy what I need and wait until it is pretty much all used up before I buy more food. This is due to wanting to save money and because I travel so much.
But, it's sometimes a pain in the butt to not have a stocked pantry. For example, when I am cooking and realize I don't have a certain usually stocked ingredient. Or, when I don't feel like cooking but I have nothing quick and easy to make in the pantry.
On the other hand, it bothers me that there's a box of hamburger helper in my pantry that I never plan on using.
I am getting better at stocki8ng my pantry, but I know I will never be one of those families that has months worth of food stocked away.
What do ya'll think? Do you enjoy stocking the pantry or does it bother you to have random food lying around?
