    try stocking up on things that you use the most... canned items, pasta sauces, pasta, soups, etc... I usually keep lots of meats so that in the summer I can cook and entertain.

    I just had to clean out my cupboards due to some kind of tiny skinny black bug that likes rice.

    Since I cleaned out the cupboards, I only buy what I know we will eat. I am so happy to come home and find space to put things away.

    A cookbook you might like for trying new things is 'Saving Dinner'. It comes with weekly shopping lists. There is a link in my source section for the book. The second link gives you a look-inside the book at Amazon.

    buy the usual condiments that you use in foods, like ketchup. also stock up on chicken breast, thighs, etc. (if you're a meat eater); buy some frozen vegetables and some canned goods like pineapples. i would also get dried goods, like pastas, rice, flour, etc.

    the point is to stock up on basic ingredients you need for everyday cooking, then look for new recipes and go shopping for the more "exotic" ingredients that you need. if you could new foods enough, pretty soon those new ingredients will wind up in your pantry/fridge and it'll fill up in no time.
