My Weekly Shopping Planning with Pictures

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Finally, based on the tracker and recipes that I just printed for the week, I fill out the shopping list template.

I have a very complicated way to do it by running the "See today's full report" 7 days, then I transfer everything to excel, add to excel the ingredients in the recipes, sort, put codes, sort again. Then I transfer to word processor, etc.

Another way, is by filling out a basic template manually.

This is an example of a shopping template that can be used for shopping and cooking.

There are shopping list templates everywhere that can be adapted to our needs in the internet, word processor, pinterest, etc.

I cover my shopping list, menu, and recipes with reusable plastic sleeves. I don't want my lists to get wet or with food spots.

When I go shopping, I write over the sleeve using a wet-erase marker, to cross out the items that I already have in my kitchen. I just buy what I need.

When I cook, the shopping list is very useful because I just gather all the ingredients that I will be using during my cooking day. For example, I get out all the condiments and spices listed and nothing else.

    Organization is the key. However, I don't seem to be this good.
    Congratulation for being able to be so organized, you deserve a pot on the back.
    Keep up the good work. Have a wonderful Hump Day!

    Great idea for getting ready to get groceries. THanks for sharing. Love the cute background. Have a great day today. You are a cooking fool. Maybe you should write a cookbook. Pam
