Printable Grocery List

Using a printable grocery list is one of the quickest ways to outline your grocery shopping list week after week. You generate this master grocery list once and then use it as a form that is personalized to your families' distinctive tastes and needs.

To do this look at your receipts and past grocery lists for quite a few weeks or months. You will start to see a pattern of what you purchased for your family week after week, or consistently every couple of weeks, for example.

Next, organize this list of staples and frequently purchased items into a list which correspond with the aisles of your grocery store. This allows you to go straight down your list without having to backtrack through the store for an overlooked item on the list that was a few aisles back.

Then, once you have used this form list for a while, and tweaked it to fit your family and life well, make lots of photocopies of it, one to use each week, and slip them into your household notebook (check back next week for more on this).

Each week, put one of the printable grocery lists on your fridge to fill out all week long, and finish once you do your meal planning for the week, and then take the completed grocery list with you to the grocery store when you do your shopping.

However, if you don't have time to create your own, or you need a little motivation, I have created a grocery list template that you can use each week as a form to get you through the aisles quickly and easily
