If I find an item that's not in its "normal" spot..I put it in a basket as I find it. Then all I have to do is clean out the basket. It makes it seem like less to do as it is only 1 basket and not an assortment of "stuff" to go thru. It's all about mind over matter.

I will organize my shopping list according to the isles I see first up to the last isle. It makes shopping a lot quicker and you're not wasting time going up & down isles you don't need. It also keeps you focused on only the foods you went there for and prevents you from over spending,
It also prevents you from impulse buying of foods you know you really shouldn't get.
Throw stuff away. Too much time, energy & $ is wasted dealing with "stuff". It"s our lives we're talking about here! Throw out everything you don't need, use or want. DON'T REPLACE IT. We only need food, family and time with our families. Otherwise we've wasted our lives.
We're here on Sparks to make a better live. Some of us have worked ourselves into difficult situations with junk--food and stuff. Do not waste time sorting or selling. We are wasting our lives and our family's lives with our behaviors. Just dump it all!! You and your family is what matters.
