4 reasons to use a shopping list

Grocery shopping can really be a chore and often takes up a lot of our time. Whether we bring the kids along or go solo, its not everybody's cup of tea. I actually don't mind grocery shopping. I know, I know - I'm a weirdo! I just like taking the time out by myself but, I have a big problem.ย 

I buy all the things I don't need, especially at ALDI!ย Anybody else?

Now when I do my grocery shop, I have a shopping list in hand (and sometimes a helper to stop me buying from the centre aisle, if I'm goingย to ALDI). and it really has made all the difference.ย 

It hasn't just made a difference to my grocery bill but, even the time that I spend in the shops. I still get some time to myself its just that now I get a chance to sit down and have a cuppa instead of strolling the aisles and adding things, that I don't need, to my trolley.

Having a list means that you wonโ€™t go off on tangents and buy items that are not necessary. โฃHaving a shopping list also saves you money by not purchasing things that you already have, just because they're on special. It's really not so cheap if you don't use it.

Having a well categorised shopping list canย get you in and out of the supermarket quicker. Which means there is no more wandering up and down the aisles wondering what you should buy.

If you don't like being in the out, having a shopping list helps give you something to focus on. โฃThis helps distract you from the hustle and bustle of the shoppingย centre. It also reduces your chances of forgettingย something that you will need to use during the week.

By shopping from your list you are buying only what you need, not what you want. That reduces the amount of food waste you haveย at home. Just remember, just because it's on sale doesn'tย necessarilyย mean that you are going to use it, especially before it goes off.
