Simplify Your Week: A No-Brainer Shopping List

by Arielle Dachille

Picture this: It's rush hour at the grocery store. You're standing before a bounty of food, surveying a million possible meal combinations, as your stomach rumbles. Problem is, you're at a complete loss. "What groceries should I buy?" you ask yourself. It's a surprisingly loaded question.

I've been trying to be more adventurous with my weekly menu -- not to mention healthy, but that's always a challenge. At the same time, I can't afford to make the perennial hungry-shopping mistake of buying some obscure condiment or random vegetable, which proceeds to sit in my fridge and rot for eternity. It's a lot of pressure, and I know I'm not alone in this... right?

This is where we come in. Bustle has teamed up with Smucker’s ® Fruit & Honey to craft the only grocery store shopping list you'll ever need.

Furthermore, we've included a list of staples that every pantry should have, so you never have to wonder what you should always have in stock. Happy eating!
