There is something about the fall season that makes my head spin. Between a busy farm life, back to school and a gazillion activities, it is a crazy time of year. Thankfully, shopping at Walmart for groceries and back to school needs allows me to stay on top of all the essentials I need for my pantry.  Hover the photo above to shop for all the recipe essentials at Walmart.com.

I like to stock up on all my pantry needs at Walmart. The Prego® Italian Sauce can be found in the aisle with the tomato and pasta sauces.
