Do you make out a grocery list or just fly by the seat of your pants?

  • I half way plan out menus (no specific dates, but I make sure I have the fixin's for a few different things) and then I clip coupons and write down what the coupon is and for how much (so I can price check and don't have to dig the coupon out) and then I fill out the rest with semi vague things like snacks for daughter, or lunch stuff for the hubby. When I go, I try to stick to just the list, but I always end up getting a few things that weren't on it :P

  • I make a menu first. Then I make a grocery list. I spend less that way.

  • I visit my local farmer's market and buy what looks good. Then I make a list of what I need at the grocery store to round out the meals based on what I got at the farmer's market. I do LOVE to cook and to be creative in the kitchen!!

  • I plan the meals for the week off of what is on sale in the store flyer, then write what else I need on the flyer before I go to the store.

  • If I'm making something specific I make a list. Otherwise I walk around and grab what I need.
