A Shopping List for the First Week in Your New Kitchen


A new kitchen is wildly exciting. It's a blank canvas, a brand-new space to make all your own — a fresh start, and a new beginning. A pantry is just waiting to get stocked with all your favorite foods and mealtime essentials. But that first grocery trip can also prove totally overwhelming, especially if you're moving into your own place for the first time or making a long-distance move, and stocking your fridge and pantry totally from scratch. 
We're here to help, with a grocery list to get you set up and fully stocked for life in your new kitchen, whether it's your first apartment in college or a new flat in a new town.  

This is one time you definitely need a shopping list!

I'm an advocate of making a grocery list for all shopping trips, but it's especially important when you're grocery shopping to stock up a new kitchen. Without a list, it's easy to buy things you don't really need and won't actually use. You know what I'm talking about.
And since you might not know the layout of your new grocery store, break your list into four main areas of your kitchen: spice cabinet and condiments, pantry, refrigerator, and freezer.

Plan on more than one trip to the store.

Use this first trip to the grocery store to stock up on just the basics and get yourself set up for easy weeknight cooking. Because even if you leave with two carts full of groceries, there will be things you forget and things you didn't realize you need. It's inevitable.
