And don't forget sugar. Also rice, spaghetti/noodles, canned beans, canned tomatoes/ tomato sauces. I prefer to get everything organic and believe it or not it can actually be surprisingly affordable if you buy in bulk at a local natural foods store or coop. I like to get 25 lbs bags of different bulk products whenever I can find them on sale or at a lower than usual price. Sometimes you have to place an order and wait for a bag to come in. One way I have found to create lots of extra space is to get bed raisers, basically little wooden blocks that you put under the legs of your bed frame to jack it up like 8 inches.
