I do otherwise I end up just buying all sorts of useless bits and end up forgetting what I actually needed

Yes I do. I use a meal planner I bought from the pound shop, I plan what we will have each night & make a list of things I need to get & any store cupboard ingredients i need to replace plus any generals milk, butter etc. Then I will add a couple of treats on at the end for us all, usually whatever is on offer. I always do food shop online. Not only does it save us money we also eat alot healthier this way.

Billie Yep, we've saved a fortune since iv been doing ours this way. I prefer to do online as if we go to the supermarket even with a list we spend more as (mostly OH) gets lurid in by deals on shelves.

I used to be a proper search of deals before shop and always a list with me but now life is too busy and grab whatever I need whenever I need.

I shop online now, i add thing to my basket as i go and when i run out of things i desperately need i pay for my shopping. I dont scroll through and look at the deals, i think thats how shopping gets pricey then, just stick to what you need x

No, I tend to food shop most days, so I usually purchase a relatively small number of items each time. I just memorize what I want to buy. Although, I like buying products I haven't tried before and also look for things on offer, so I often leave the shop with a different set of goods than I originally intended.

I do and stick mostly to it. If the hubby decides to join in on the shopping trip though, it takes twice as long and the bill is almost doubled 😬

Yes, I have a slim note book on the fridge so when something runs out stick it straight on the list but then generally forget to take the list shopping, but the thought was there

Yes I do, especially when I shop on a budget. Definitely saves me time and money and keeps my kids occupied while shopping 🙂

I keep meaning to. Going to start as I'm sure it'll help with my spending and with picking up items I don't really need x

I normally jot a few things down on a post it and end up coming out of the shop with an extra 2 - 3 bags of shopping 🤣. I really should be more organised and write a proper list and stick to it. Sending my partner out is best as he'll come back home with exactly what I asked for, nothing more, nothing less. ha ha.
