Shoping and storing ingredients



shopping for vegetables in Luynes with my sister Gisele.
I used to be bad at keeping  groceries in stock in my kitchen and I had to run to
the groceries store to often. Now two facts  have change that situation
_I started coupooning and to really save money you have to buy things in stock
when they are on sale.
- I started my cooking blog and hate to have to run out for the things I need.
So I decided to change my shopping habit and make sure I have all the things I
need at all time.
 I decided to make a list of all the things I need at all time and  to make a list I
can  take to the store. since this list is pretty much all the things I use in my blog
