I posted a bunch of pictures a few years ago - before 3 moves and a job change.

Now we have purchased a new home, are settling in and have been restocking the pantry.

This is a pic of our main shelf. We also have boxes of mylar(ed) sugar, flour, beans, rice, flour, and powdered milk.

Shelf is about 7 cans of veggies deep

Top shelf is flour, pancake mix, sugar, baking soda, condensed milk, oil
Next - Veggies and spaghetti stuff
Next - Meat, peanut butter, jelly, soup,
Next - Fruit
Next - condiments, brown sugar, oil, powdered eggs, milk
Flour - #10 cans wheat, rice, flour

Now for the hard part (with the exception of long term storage), use what you store so all your packaged goods remain current.

since we eat what we buy..that is easy.... although we in the past have donated to a local food pantry to move some older items

you get rid of stuff before its Best By Date???? We eat soup 2 years after... other stuff months after
Most of the stuff I keep get's eaten but the food I referred above I use for homemade MREs that I would eat in a pinch ($5-7 to make vs $15 for premade).

I find that there is too much salt, carbs and fat for my everyday diet but given there is some sort of energy / crisis ... I would eat them given they high calorie count. Kind of like eating MREs in certain situations but not wanting them to be a staple.

I must say that is a pretty nice looking pantry other than there doesn't seem to be any piggy puffs.

Godspeed.

They might not accept them at the food bank if they are expired. I donate them usually around or a month before the bbd. There's only 2 of us, it's hard to get to eat stocks before the bbd. Like, we normally don't eat canned soup often - probably once a month - but I stocked up on variety of canned soup that we like, among other things.

If we keep expired products around, they occupy space which would otherwise go to newly purchased items. It's "hit or miss" with expired products. I've opened some old ones that are "bubbly."

That's surely a nice-looking pantry you got.

Slap a sign on the front or your house "Maine Marine Grocery Store" where customer service is our motto.

You're miles and miles and miles ahead of the average American. Good for you!!!!

Just curious - approximately how many years worth is that much?
