I didn't buy all the bins and containers at once. When I would go to Walmart for groceries I'd pick up a few containers. For me it was easier on my wallet to purchase a few items at a time over a period of several months.
I decided to create my own grocery list and hang it on the pantry door. It's divided up into categories and makes it easy for my kids (or hubby!) to add items that we need.
You can print the grocery list here.
This ended up being a long post so I'll do a separate one about how I grocery shop, meal plan and save money.
Have an awesome weekend!
