Then, I build my shopping list. I go day-by-day and write down every single thing on the list. For my entire week, my list looked like this:
Then I go shopping... IN MY KITCHEN! I go through my whole list and mark off things that I already have in my pantry or refrigerator. And eventually, my list will look like this:
Finally, I write my grocery list. Doing it this way, I save myself a lot of trouble and money because I don't buy things I already have and I don't forget to buy things that I don't have. I arrange my list by how my grocery store is organized. My final list was just over a page long, way down from four!
Did anyone happen to notice what is MISSING from my list? Drumroll, please........
