With all the sickness going around, including my own morning sickness, it’s important to have a few things in the pantry always! It’s crazy, I hate going to the store now that I have discovered clicklist and Amazon Prime grocery delivery, but I always have a few things on hand just in case. Here is my list of the pantry must have’s for a busy mom.

White Vinegar

I love having this on hand because it is an amazing cleaning product. It is so easy to add to my cleaning solutions to know my floors and other items are clean clean.
Pick up a few bottles to have when you have a sudden need to clean.

Black Beans

I like to make my own in the InstantPot, but having a bag of black beans in the pantry is an easy way to add a little protein into your diet.

Active Skin

This stuff is great to have around now because Baby Bear is all over the place. It is a more natural form of Neosporin so I don’t worry about applying it at will. It is great for cuts, rashes, or basic boo boos.

Bag Soup

Bear Country Potato Soup is amazing and we love having it in case I forget to plan a dinner. We like adding extra cheese and throwing in a bit of turkey bacon. Pro Tip: Did you know curb side pick up is free at Target?

Force of Nature Cleaner

I have said it before, and I will say it again – we are obsessed with this cleaner. If you look on their website it even says it will kill the coronavirus! We the refills on Subscribe & Save with Amazon just to make sure we don’t run out.


We like to always have at least one bag of tortilla’s in the pantry. If we have them we can make quesadillas, casseroles, tacos, burritos or so many other things! Sometimes we even put some hummus in one and roll it up for Baby Bear.
