  • I plan what I want for meals for the week and decide what I don't have and need to buy. Then I group the items into the way the aisles are arranged in the store. Dairy, meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, bakery, canned fruits and vegetables, rice and pasta, beverages, baking items.

  • Start with your meal plan! Write down all meals and snacks for the next 8 days; base your grocery list on the items you will need to complete your meal plan. If you don't know what you will be serving, then how can you know what groceries to buy?
