The Grocery List Is The Key To The Grocery Store

An organized grocery list is the key to saving time and money in the grocery store. When you have a list organized by department you avoid backtracking through the aisles when you forget something.

Getting in and out of the store quickly is highly correlated to saving money. Studies show that each additional minute you spend in the grocery store over thirty (30) minutes results in spending $1 per minute.

Remember that taking the time to develop a grocery list is worth the investment, which can be less than the time spent returning to the store for a forgotten item.

Tips for making great grocery lists:

  • Develop a master grocery list template for ongoing use,
  • Organize the list by categories,
  • Make items you use every week a permanent part of your master list,
  • List brand names, can sizes, and amounts to eliminate guesswork in the grocery store.
