Do you make a list for the grocery store?

I did last time and I didn't overspend, so I think I need to from now on.

  • Yeah! Always, if not i overspend. I do allow myself to go off the list if i really want it, or its a really good sale.

  • i do. if i dont, i forget what i need, and get junk. it helps me stay focused on task. i also eat before i go so that all the junk food doesnt seem AS appealing

  • I do, but it's mainly for the things we need, not necessarily a "complete" list.

  • yes and no. For most things, but I usually do something generic like :meat" "fruit" so I can see what's on sale and what looks good.

  • I always make a list and try to stick with it. I even get all my sale ads together and then even go through all my coupons. I am a big coupon person. I will even put an c in front of my item to let me know not to forget the coupons.

  • I make a list but I still end up buying things that "look good" at the time~~or when I'm hungry
