This posting has nothing to do about cooking.I have known many people who are very very organized in every aspect of life,but when it comes to Organization in the kitchen...they get the chills.I have read so many magazine articles,cookery books and each and every one of them made it a point to say "Keep your pantry organized.Know what is in your pantry."
Over the last few years,my cooking skills have evolved(If I can say so myself) and now I can trust myself to try new recipes.So with that came the quest of how to keep everything I may need for a particular meal stocked at home,so that my poor hubby does not have to run out for something I forgot.For that reason,I made it a point to go grocery shopping with a list....be it anything.I used to write my list aisle wise,so that we did not have to go back and forth as Tanvir hated grocery shopping(typical male).
Then finally I made a master list ,according to the aisles in any grocery store...which contains almost everything I may need.The next step was printing it and having a copy in the kitchen.Stick it to the inside of the pantry drawer or keep it in a kitchen drawer.Now whenever I am running short on something,or need to buy any item,I just mark it (using a pencil) on the list.Remember PENCIL since you have to use the list agian the next week and the week after that.So when you are all set for grocery shopping,just grab your list and bags and don't forget your credit cards and you are all set.
Below you will see a snaphot of the master grocery list I am talking about .
