Hi friends! Today I’m going to tell you how I efficiently grocery shop.
This saves me not only time, but money too!
My biggest piece of advice for you is to get to know your store from front to back. Know which aisle to find things, and then organize your list in order of the way you shop the store.
For example, when I shop at Walmart I usually start in the produce section and end in the personal care section. So I organize my list by section, and then by aisle within those sections.
This saves time because you aren’t seeking out every individual item and having to double back.
My next piece of advice is to make your list comprehensive. For example, don’t just write “stuff for tacos”, but write down every single item.
I use the Reminder app on my phone, and organize my lists by each store I go to.
To me, saving time at the store is so important. I get overwhelmed and anxious easily so the quicker in and out the better!
Making a list of every single item ensures that I don’t impulse buy! If an item is not on the list, I will not buy it. This helps to maintain my budget. (Of course, the downside is that if I forget to put an item on the list, there is zero percent I’ll remember when at the store. 😅)
So these are some easy tips on how I efficiently grocery shop.
I know a lot of people don’t enjoy doing it, so maybe this can help to streamline the process.
