Revamping the Grocery List!

Simple_Living

 

Thinking of things we’d like to eat and then making a list of ingredients to make such things is one of my most dreaded tasks as a Mother and Wife. As much as I love food and love to cook you would think that it would be a happy, enjoyable event. yet here I am procrastinating again when I should be making up my list. {UGH}

My mindset is that maybe writing about it will help to sort out the issue. One of my main problems is stressing about cost while simultaneously being horrible at math. {Not a good combo I know!} So I wanted to come up wit
h a few ideas to help simplify my list and get it done and out of the way.
  1. Try to cook from scratch as much as possible. 
  2.  Make a mental note of items you already have on hand. 
  3. Buy most used items in bulk or large sizes. 
  4. Make a list of 14 dinner meals you and your family love.

  5. Write down the ingredients to make these 14 meals
  6. Add any extras like seasonings, butter/oil, milk & bread.
  7. Organize your list in order by category, or at least make sure cold/frozen items are made separate. I usually have a Dry/Cold list, starting from one side of the store to the other. You could also list canned items separate if you like. 
  8. Add basic breakfast items, I like to keep this meal easy.
  9. Compare prices online or with the sale papers, this will help you make better choices and keep you focused. 
  10. Use coupons when you can, some can be preloaded to your store account. (I’m horrible at remembering this one)

Enjoy your newly organized grocery list!!
