Here is a list of staples that I usually have on me at all times. I will be investigating the price of all these items at a variety of grocery stores and reporting back on prices so that you can have a monthly staples budget added to your monthly food budget.

Olive Oil (I like to have one for cooking, marinating, etc and 1 that I love for salads, dips and anything where I really want to taste the oil).
Coconut Oil
Himalayan Salt
Spices (I like to have a combo of dry and fresh)
