When you grocery shop do you use a list... or do you buy basically the same stuff?

  • I love lists but I only use them to food shop if I am buying a bunch of items I don't usually buy for new recipes etc. Or if I just need to get a few specific things I make a list so I don't forget.

  • I write a list I will l will write everything I need rather it is groceries, toilet paper, tooth paste, dog food, cat food, cover up or even pads because if it isn't on the list I tend to forget it I will even do this if it isn't on the list I don't buy it.

  • I always shop with a list unless I'm just going for one or two specific things.

  • I use a list. I like to go through the cabinets and see what I have and try to plan meals around what's already there. Then I make a list of what I need. I can actually save quite a bit of money that way. I buy only what we need and cut out some of the excess.

  • List of things I need.

  • A little of both. If I plan on trying a new recipe, or something that I haven't made in a while, I write a list. Usually, I get the same basic things with a few random things, though.
