Essential Store Cupboard items

Ensure that when you are doing your shopping list that you make sure that you have enough of these items to get you through another week.  Dont buy them unless you need them, its pointless keeping a stock in your cupboards, keep your money in your purse instead of in the pockets of the supermarkets.
