Your Grocery List
How to make sure you get what you need (and only what you need!) every time you visit the store.
Grab exactly what you need, without the hassle
You spend so much time in the grocery store, but never bring home exactly what you need.
Use these tips to organize your list for maximum speed and minimum forgetfulness.
GO WITH THE (STORE) FLOW
Create several mini-lists that match the layout of your store. Divide a sheet of paper into six sections: produce, dairy, meat, dry goods, frozen foods, and personal/home items. At the store, you’ll be able to see everything you need in each section before moving on.
CREATE A MASTER LIST
Are there staples, such as milk, apples, or cereal, that you need almost every visit? Type up a master list of frequently bought items, print it out, then circle or highlight items to quickly mark what you need.
ADD TO YOUR LIST EVERY DAY
Keep your list in a handy spot so you can add to it anytime you see an item running low or choose a recipe to make. Before you go to the store, do a quick scan of your list to see if you left anything out.
