Inventory and Provisioning Spreadsheet

I've seen a couple of people asking about provisioning spreadsheets. I thought I'd add mine to the mix, as it's a little different from the others.

The spreadsheet and an instruction sheet are on my blog:

Provisioning Spreadsheet

It's not so much recommended foods or amounts -- that will vary considerably depending on your tastes, number of people, where you are, etc.

This spreadsheet will allow you to decide what foods you want, how many units of each you use in an average week, let you inventory how many you already have on hand, and then it will calculate how many you need to buy.

It it set up so that you can sort it to print only the items you need, and have those items sorted by category -- for example, all the "Baking" items you need will be grouped together so that when you're in the baking aisle of the store, you'll know ALL the things to put in the basket. This makes shopping much more efficient.

Hope you find it helpful!

The "Carolyn" brand is right next to the "Dave" brand!

Seriously, the one thing that I'd add now that isn't on that spreadsheet is dried beans. Since I learned about Thermos Cooking (click the link if you want to know how to do it), I've almost totally stopped buying canned beans -- the dried are SO much lighter and smaller to store IF you have adequate water on board, and using the Thermos makes it a lot easier on a boat . . . or anywhere, actually.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words!
