As I promised in my post from yesterday, here is my pantry. It is reasonably well-organised but has not been tidied especially for these photos.
My grocery shopping can be divided into 2 basic categories. The first is bulk bin purchases of dry goods such as nuts, flours, seeds, legumes which are shown in the first photo. I buy most of these from Simply Good. I am able to take my own containers to fill and thus avoid any packaging. This is important to me and particularly relevant as we approach the end of Plastic Free July.
I regard supermarket shopping as the last resort – I buy those items which I cannot grow, swap, buy from the producer directly, greengrocer, butcher or otherwise plastic free. These include dairy products and a small number of canned or packaged foods. These are mostly shown in the next photo.
By having an organised refrigerator and pantry, I am able to easily scan the shelves and create a shopping list when required.
