Why this list: Research shows that people using a grocery list spend less on average and make healthier choices. You will also know what you need to buy rather than walk around the grocery store for hours. Last, you are less likely to make multiple trips to your local store.
How to create it: Organize your grocery list into different section matching your grocery store. For example, you can add a heading for produce, meats, dry goods, dairy, frozen, and miscellaneous. Use a different color for each section. Invite people you live with so everyone can add items as things run out or things needed for the following weekend.
