How do you stock your pantry, and shop, to not run out or have things that expire?

It's just me and my husband and we cook 'sometimes' ... still trying to find a strategy for shopping that doesn't result in us throwing out items that aren't fresh any longer. Am now contemplating buying fresh items only when I know they'll be for a specific meal. (Planning/shopping a day in advance or day-of for freshest ingredients.)

Anyone have an actual shopping strategy that works for them? (With similar household size/cooking frequency.)
