MY list of Kitchen Staples

These are items that I like to have in my kitchen.  I don't always have ALL of them. Also, I didn't include staples like fruit, vegetables, meat, etc.  I'll put that on another list soon.  I'd like to say that I can find them all easily at one store.  Not the case in my city.  Well, that might not even be true.  There is a upscale grocery store that I have been in exactly once.  You might be able to find every thing there.  But I go to a couple of grocery store, health food store and a couple ethnic stores to get everything that I want.
