Stay organized with a grocery list to avoid buying items you don’t really need.

Grocery List Basics:

  • Use your list of weekly meals to create a list of foods and beverages you will need to buy. Don’t forget to include foods like fruits, vegetables, and milk that might not be part of a recipe but are basics for healthy eating.
  • You can write your list on scratch paper, enter it into a computer or a free mobile app.
  • Keep an ongoing grocery list in your kitchen, computer or a mobile app and add items as you run out.
  • Try organizing your list to make shopping quick and easy. For a free template, try the Create a Grocery Game Plan: Grocery List.
