How I Use A Printable Grocery List To Save Money
I love the free The Ultimatest Grocery List because it saves me money! It even has a vegetarian version!
Here is how:
-Saves time getting you in and out of store reducing impulse purchases which saves money.
-Saves time by just checking what you need, no long lists to write out.
-No duplicate items purchased that you already have on hand, saves money.
-No return trips for forgotten items saving you gas.
-Menu planning and a grocery list based on what's on sale and what you already have on hand, matched up with available coupons really saves a lot!
-Menu plannning for a week (or more) will help you use purchased ingredients up before they expire.
-Menu planning will save on unplanned dining out.
I keep copies in my household management planner. As I'm going about my day and discover something I'm low on or need, it's right there and I tic it.
Do you use a printable grocery list? A handwritten list? Do you find your meal planning goes smoother and you don't spend as much money when you have a list?
