I love lists! It’s true. It makes me feel organized. The problem? I never remember the list. Since signing up for emeals.com, I have actually remembered to take my lists to the grocery store with me. Yay!
Let me just say, when shopping by myself with a 2 year old and a 7 month old, time is precious. To be fair, I have probably a 20 minute window with almost a guarantee of happy kids. Anything longer than that is up in the air. That’s where my grocery list comes in handy. Now, I don’t actually make all of the meals on my emeals plan, I wish I could exclude certain foods, then I probably would make them all, but, I don’t like fish or chicken – yes I know, that’s the healthier stuff. So, I write our our meal plan for the week. Sunday is grocery time after church and before football. I also write out everything that we need to get to make our meals. Plus, I add all of those other random things you need.
Before my lists, I would just go to the store in town and get what I need. I did this just about every other day. What did that do for me? Cost me time, gas money, more money on groceries because I was going to the local, much more expensive store. Sometimes, I still go to the local store because they carry my groceries out and it’s much smaller so the trip is faster.
I love using this printable list for my grocery shopping. Everything is broken up into sections making it easy to follow and not forget anything. Even when I would write my list elsewhere, I would end up missing something and have to walk back across the store for it. Not anymore!
I hope this list can help you #getorganized! If you are ready to sign up, use code “newyear” to save 15%!
Do you use a list when doing your grocery shopping? Or are you like I was and always forgetting that one or two things that you end up running back for?
