Grocery List & Shopping
What do you use for a grocery list? Mine has evolved over the years from a master list with every item I ever purchased listed by aisle at my usual grocery store to an index card that I now use. I keep a weekly list, writing items down as they are used up or getting low. And when I plan my menus, I add the ingredients needed for each recipe I will use. I make sure to check products like tissues, paper towels, and other items that we use regularly. Family members know where I keep the list and add items as needed. (or sometimes, not needed) I do have to remember to TAKE the list with me when going to the store! What sort of grocery list do you keep?
And guess what? I am now able to go to the store ALONE! I know that can’t happen to most of you. Do you have someone you can trade children with just long enough to buy your groceries? Or maybe you have a child old enough to hand a short list and let them take their own cart to pick up items.
