Did you know that more than 39 million people in the United States alone live in apartments? If you plan on moving into a new apartment, you should definitely think about what's going on your new apartment grocery list. After all, what are the most important things you need to buy right away for your apartment?

How should you stock your pantry so you can start cooking a few simple meals right away in your new home? Keep reading and learn more about what should be on your new apartment grocery list.


Without some basic pantry essentials, you won't be able to cook much of anything in your apartment. When you go to the grocery store, the first thing you will want to do is buy things that you can use in a variety of different meals. Consider rice and noodles, for instance.

You can make just about any kind of lunch or dinner with these ingredients. Not only are they versatile, but they are also very filling. But of course, you need other ingredients to cook with noodles and rice. In particular, olive oil and butter are very important.

If you don't have olive oil or butter, then whatever you try to cook in your pan will surely end up sticking and getting ruined. With olive oil, in particular, you don't even need to worry about cooking if you don't want to. You can drizzle olive oil on all sorts of things.


You can toast a piece of bread and put some olive oil on it or you can put some olive oil on a salad if you feel like something light. If you don't like olive oil, then you can substitute another kind of oil such as coconut oil, sesame oil, and so on. And, of course, when considering kitchen essentials, you won't want to forget about a few basic spices.

You can't go without salt and pepper. Whatever you end up cooking, salt and pepper will make it taste far better. You can put these two ingredients on French fries, fried eggs, salads, and so on.

The possibilities are endless. For a bit more flavor, you can always get some red pepper, oregano, and other herbs and spices to liven up your food. You also won't want to forget about salsa and dressings to add some extra flavor to your food.


The ingredients already discussed are good for lunches and dinners, but they won't help you much when it comes to the world of baking. Baked goods are very good to have on hand when you first move into a new apartment. This is because baked goods are not only filling but they are delicious as well and there is a large variety to choose from.

After all, you can make anything from coffee cakes and chocolate chip cookies to muffins and healthy oatmeal cookies. Whatever the case, you will need flour. White flour is good for just about everything, but if you can't eat plain white flour for whatever reason or don't want to consume it, then there are plenty of alternatives to choose from.

For example, there is almond flour, wheat flour, whole grain flour, and many other types you can enjoy. The point is that you need flour to make any kind of baked goods. If you don't know how much flour you need, it is best to err on the side of caution and buy more than what you think you might need.


That way, you won't run into the problem of not having enough flour when you're in the middle of making something. To go along with the flour you will need granulated sugar. Besides being popular in baked goods, you can also use sugar to sweeten your coffee or tea.

You also won't want to forget about some other basic ingredients like vegetable oil, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and so on. Baking powder and yeast are also important for ensuring that certain baked goods rise as they're supposed to. If necessary, get some gluten-free flour as well.

Once you have all that, you shouldn't have any trouble making all sorts of food in your new apartment.


Of course, you won't want to be eating only cookies and cakes once you move into your new apartment. You'll also want to have some healthy food products to keep your energy up as you get your apartment settled and organized. In particular, you will want to keep an eye out for all sorts of different fresh and frozen pieces of produce.

For example, fresh fruit is always good to have around your apartment. That way, whenever you're feeling a bit hungry but don't want to make anything, you can just grab an apple or a banana. The great thing about apples, oranges, and bananas is that you can store them at room temperature for a long time before they start to go bad.

Frozen produce is also important for meals and smoothies. This is not to mention that frozen produce such as fruits and vegetables are very easy to prepare and all you need to do is cook them as the instructions on the packaging say, so keep that in mind the next time you're in the grocery store.


If you plan on moving into a new apartment, you'll need a new apartment grocery list to follow. The first things you will need are basic pantry essentials such as rice, noodles, olive oil, butter, and so on. You will also need some things to bake with such as flour, sugar, vanilla extract, and more.

And, of course, don't forget about fresh and frozen produce. As long as you have all of these essentials on your grocery list, you shouldn't have any trouble feeling right at home in your new apartment. To learn more, don't hesitate to contact us here.
