Does Proverbs 31 ever intimidate you, me too. That girl had her stuff together and she didn't even have Pinterest! Even at 40 something (ok, the back side of 40 something) and 25 plus years of marriage I am still trying to get my stuff together. It seems I am constantly tweaking, and trying to find things that work best for me and my family. Occasionally I find something that is just right and that is true of this Shopping List I found at Time Warp Wife.

I use this for all of my grocery shopping needs. Instead of the date I put the name of the store that I will be going to purchase these particular items. I go to Sam's every two to three weeks, so on my Sam's list I put the items that I regularly shop for there as I need them, when I am ready to to go there I just pull the list out of my binder.
I keep a separate list for my local grocery store and when their sale bill comes out I put together a list for what I need, I do shop weekly at the grocery store.
Finally I keep one last list for Wal-mart/Target. This is for items that are generally cheaper there, but I do not buy in bulk. This shopping trip is usually every couple of weeks, if I plan well.
I also participate in Bountiful Baskets Food Co-Op every two weeks for produce. It is cheaper than the grocery, but you do not get to choose your items. We have only been participating for a month but have found it to be beneficial for our family not only financially but also eating more fresh fruits and vegetables as well as trying new things.
Do you have a favorite way to grocery shop? I guess my favorite way would be not at all, but since is must be done, might as well be organized!
