How To Create Your Shopping List?

Do you find you spend more, sometimes double what you’d planned or often forget to buy essentials on your grocery shop? There’s a solution: a well-organised shopping list!⁠

The format you use to keep an organized shopping list is up to you — whether it’s manually written or kept digitally on your phone— but there are few general tips that will make all the difference:⁠

• Keep a Running Shopping List in the Kitchen⁠
Keep the list on the counter, fridge, corkboard, or near your family command centre. Remember to include items just before you run out of them.⁠

• Categorise the items according to your grocery store so you can find the items easily when shopping. Here is our suggestion: Fresh fruit, vegetables, herbs / Meat, fish / Bakery, deli / Dairy, eggs / Bread, pasta, rice, grains / Frozen foods / Canned vegetables, lentils and pulses, sauces / Sweet treats, snacks / Drinks ⁠

• Plan a weekly menu and remember to allow for a spare night where you might eat leftovers. ⁠

• Your phone is your friend: Take a photograph of your pantry and fridge before heading to the store so you can easily check if you have any special ingredients that you don’t usually use. ⁠
