The LIst

One of the things I dread doing each week is making the grocery list. Yet, when I do make my list, I find that I save more money.
There are was to make the list easier to create weekly.
  1. Use a downloaded grocery list manager on the web or on your phone. I’ve got an android shopping list that remembers what I had on my list last week so repeats are simply touching the screen. There are 1000’s of free list programs online.
  2. Use the ready to go list from our blog. Just highlight the weekly match up, and Print Selection. Do not print the entire blog! The items that are on sale will print with nice little boxes for you to check off. That saves me time writing out the top coupon matched purchases I plan to make.
  3. Hand write it the old fashioned way. When I do this, I do not include the items from the sale ad. I instead write anything that is NOT on sale that I have to remember to get at the store.
  4. Try making your list DURING coupon club. Sometimes that will give you more time to sit and really think about what you need to prepare meals this week, and add items you simply want.
  5. You can also take inventory of stockpile and then decide what should be on the list. If you have a roast, 1 lb of Hamburger and some fettucine noodles, you can put those in programs on the net to see what recipes match what you already have. Then that will help you to Use up items in the pantry.
  6. Use color to distinguish those items on the list you plan to match coupons to, and those items that you need to compare prices. Keep highlighters in your coupon organizer.
