1. Write out what we're having each day on a calendar. (I used http://www.calendarsthatwork.com/ and download a free calendar.)
2. Check the forecast, especially this time of year. There are certain things I like to eat for dinner when it's cold out.
3. Make out a grocery list using the app Out of Milk. The great thing about this is that I have the categories organized according to the grocery store that I go to, so I can mark things off as I go. It also keeps me from buying a lot of stuff we don't need. Another great thing about this app is that I can pull it up on my laptop, enter my list, and it syncs to my phone. (Well, usually...last time it didn't because of an update-totally my fault- & I had to pull it up online.)
4. Look through the paper store coupons and then the coupons online.
Yep, I'm tired before I even get out the door.
I just realized that this post was published with the title "The Dreaded Grocery Story" instead of "Store"! It sounds more like a story, for sure!
