Anchorage Area Commissary Map

Here is the link to the floor plan of the Commissary.
Very helpful in making your store list.

Step 2: Shop Well

Start Slowly:
If you're not sure your family will enjoy an item, buy just one at first.

Be Healthy:
Keep an eye on the nutrition information on the items you stockpile. Sure, those 28 boxes of Rice Krispie Treats are a good buy, but they are not good for your teeth or your waistline! Focus your efforts more on whole grain pasta and canned tomatoes and lean meat.

Being A Buddy:
Consider shopping with a friend, esp. by sharing a warehouse club membership. You'll have access to the same great deals and not have to buy more than you'll actually use.

FREE Printable Pantry List

So, the first thing you need to do, before you have any big ideas about stock piles, and $0 grocery trips, is go through your pantry and organize it. Yes, I know. However, it is the most important step in seeing what you need, and also ensuring you stockpile the correct items, so that no matter what time you get home, or how busy you are, you can throw together a simple and delicious meal. And do you know what that means? Those quick trips to Mickey D's and all, are out the window, thereby saving your waistline and your wallet! You're welcome! :)

Here is the link:
Print it out, put it inside the pantry in a page protector, and using your handy dandy dry erase marker, mark off what you have!

Happy Organizing!
