What do the two of you like to eat? What types of foods  do you like to cook? Start there and you will be able to get an idea of staples that you will need. There are also some basic staples that everyone should keep on hand:  Flour, sugar, eggs, milk, butter, rice, pasta, fresh/frozen/canned vegetables, fresh/canned/frozen fruits, oatmeal, meats that you both like.  Always make sure you have foods for breakfast lunch and dinner.

"Never been grocery shopping before"? How old are you? Who did it before now?

We stock ours with things we like the eat the most and easy to make. Everyone is different on what they feel they need to stock up on.

well first, there's this place called a 'grocery store'

you must find one of these....

then hand all your money to the first person you see and tell them to buy what you need. 

Then go on home - they'll deliver it all later.
