An Organized Grocery Shopping Trip!!!

Those of you who know me, knows that I love being organized but that I also love saving time and MONEY!!!

So by organizing your shopping trips it can be very helpful in several ways. For one thing, it helps to keep you focused on the task at hand. Then, it saves valuable time in the grocery store and at home. Lastly, organizing pays off big time by saving you money.

By making last minute shopping trips, or hurrying off to the grocery store without some type of preparation will cost more money than if you prepare your shopping trips in advance.

Here are 6 great tips from an article by Darlene Marie!!!

First 3 tips are…

1. Keep a Scratch Pad Handy — Keeping a scratch pad and pencil handy in the kitchen is an extremely valuable time saver. Right when you run out of a particular item, or think of something you need at the grocery store, you are able to write it down immediately and hang it on the refrigerator. (I use my phones note pad.) 2. Clip it out — when you see a sales circular with a special item that you want to purchase, clip it out and/or attach it to your grocery list right away. Keeping it together with your list will act as a friendly reminder. 3. Organize the List — organize your list to match the item's location in the store. This will prevent you from wondering aimlessly up and down the aisles; therefore, making it less likely picks up expensive impulse items.
