    Faye - Thank you for this list! I've been away caring for sick family, and this consolidated list is a tremendous help for quickly determining the store to grab essentials until I can do a bigger shop for my family now that I'm back at home. So thankful for the many savings I've been able to store in pantry and freezer making affordable and nutritious meals in my unexpected absences. The lessons learned from you about shopping smartly have been such a blessing. Thank you for sharing!!
