Does this happen to anyone else? Grrr!

It seems like no matter how often I add things to a grocery list and no matter how many times I go to the store, I ALWAYS forget at least one thing that I REALLY wanted to get! This is getting ridiculous lol.

  • Hell I forget the stupid list! Then I end up with buying stuff I already have!

  • That happens often. When I send dh to the store there is always a whole bag of crap not on the list (usually junk) but he doesn't forget anything on the list.

  • I'm very very forgetful especially when I have dh talking in one ear of mine and kids in the other going through the store. What I started doing is I keep post-its on the fridge and immediately when I realize we are out of something, I write it down. If we are running low on something I write it down immediately too. Before I go to the store I check it to see if anything needs to be added and I go by person's needs one by one on the list then I go room by room. Example: dd's needs, ds, dh, me, cat,bathroom, kitchen, etc. It really helps!

  • Yeah it happens to me all the time. No matter if I bring my list. I always forget something that was either on the list or not on it, but it's always something major.
