It's been a little over a month since I made my first free printable. I wasn't really planning on doing another one any time soon, but this one sort of just happened. I came across a free printable grocery list that really helped me organize my shopping list. The downside was, it didn't really meet my needs. So, naturally, I made my own!
Aren't they precious?! =) I'm obviously more drawn to the teal & yellow shopping list but we don't have a color printer, which explains the black and grey version. Underneath the header, you'll see where it says "Month." This is for those of you who are on a budget or for the very organized people. Let me explain... My husband and I are currently on one income. We prefer to eat totally opposite meals so it's very possible for me to go to the store and spend $200 a week on groceries just by buying our favorite foods over and over. It's because we don't have the same favorite foods, so we buy salads for me and chips for him, whole grain cereal for me and cookies for him, almond milk for me and whole milk for him. You get the picture. So, I had an idea that might help cut down on our expenses. I started shopping only once a month if I could help it, and for the most part we can make do for a month. To cut down even more on the Wal-Mart Spending Sprees, I had a genious idea. We don't have to stock up on our favorite foods every time I or we go shopping. We could spread it out...let some things (like cookies and avocados) be special treats.
Anyway, this shopping list is perfect for us and there's bound to be more people out there who shop and eat like we do. Hopefully someone will find this useful! :) To print: right click, save as, and open as an image in Word. Print thousands of copies.
