INFOGRAPHIC! Five Kitchen Staples on a Budget

This week has seen me focusing on Back to School essentials such as where to buy textbooks and some simple food hacks. I decided I would cap it all off with ways to keep your food interesting and your pantry well-stocked!

Every single thing on this list is in my house and makes its own weekly, if not daily, appearance. So take a gander, write them on your grocery list and look forward to some lovely, tasty budget meals!

  1. From someone who spend a lot on food and creating new dishes, this has inspired me to make more out of less, meaning saving money - hurrah! X

    Great post!

    1. I always suggest making an initial investment to get some staple spices (usually garlic powder, Italian seasoning, basil, tex mex or taco seasoning and a generic salt-free seasoning) and airtight jars as a starter. It is amazing what you can do.

      Also, marinating zucchini or other veggies in Italian dressing then frying or grilling them is awesome! Same with some meats and other goodies...

      ... now I'm hungry.

    1. Beans, man, it's all about the beans. I can get four meals out of one can and it costs approximately $2. A good bean salad or a well seasoned rice and beans dish... yum!

      Let me know what you come up with!

    1. Thanks Terri, living as a starving student and starving artist for most of my 20s taught me how to live on the cheap. Along the way, I learned how to make it all tasty, too!

    1. I know! I have a lot of fresh and frozen veggies in my house (depends on the season). It was a lesson I learned by nearly giving myself scurvy in uni (not literally, but you get my point). Ever since, fruit is a friend.
