SAVE TIME. SAVE MONEY.
Dread making the trip to the grocery store? Hate dodging in and out of massive cart traffic? I am so there. Grocery shopping is definitely not something I look forward to but it is a necessity of life. Here’s a little something I do to try to make the trip to the store a little less hectic.
An easy way to save time and money when it comes to grocery shopping is to take a list. I have to admit though, making a list is a bit time-consuming in and of itself. Not anymore though. I created a list on the computer of the items we tend to purchase every month and put checkboxes beside each one. Instead of having to think about what items we need before I go to the store, now I just check the empty box as soon as we run out so whenever I head to the store, my list is ready to go!
1. Create a list of grocery items you regularly buy at the store
You may have to prioritize and eliminate some that don’t fit. Make sure to list the items in the order you go through the store. This will cut down on your shopping trip time because everything will be in order and you won’t have to search for items on your list or miss anything and have to go back for it.
2. Make your document into three columns and make two copies of your list. Leave several blank lines at the bottom so you can fill in items that aren’t on your regular list.
3. Print list, cut lists, and use a magnetic clip to hang them on the fridge.
4. Don’t forget to checkmark the items whenever you run out or think of an item you need for your upcoming grocery run.
