  • Sometimes I do. Mostly though I have a basic idea what we need and just buy it.

  • Most of the time yes. If I don't bring a list, I buy all kinds of crap and forget the stuff I really need. If I have a list, I stick to it mostly.

  • I have a terrible memory... so if there's more than a couple things I need to get, yeah, I write it down. Of course we end up getting more than what's on the list..

  • The list used to be in my head but these days I write it down. I take my own bags to avoid impulse buys.

  • Always. I make our menu, then make the list. And I organize by aisle, so I know exactly what I need. I do get things not on the list, but if I didn't have my list I'd be making a ton of trips to grocery store because of things I need.

  • Yes I use a grocery list because it keeps me from buying things that I don't need.

  • I totally understand where your coming from! I make sure I have everything on my list that I need/have to get and then I improvise from there on out and get whatever above and beyond the list.

  • sometimes if i go shopping on a busy day like saturday, but i still get things that not on the list

  • If there are things I need to get and not forget I make a list of those, but not a list of everything i plan to buy (if that makes sense)

  • I HAVE to use a shopping list. We get paid once a month, and the grocery store is 20 miles away. I have to plan really carefully for what we're going to need since it's such a huge inconvenience to go to the grocery store very often.
