A Well Stocked Pantry and a PPP List

You might consider taking a good look into your pantry… what you’ve got on hand, what do you use most often and what’s lacking? Then, if you have them, take a look at your most recent grocery receipts – most stores give enough description for you to cipher what’s...

Link Potpourri
