Get in and out of the grocery store in record time
I hate grocery shopping! My kids know I am avoiding it when I serve breakfast for dinner in an attempt to delay the inevitable.
The secret to speedy shopping
Write your grocery store list in the order of the store. The shopping will take less time, and you will avoid the frustration of multiple laps through the store.
This is a huge plus when your four-year old insists on riding in the “car” cart monstrosity that maneuvers with all the grace of a big rig through the tight aisles.
Create your menu plan and grocery list at the same time. As you add items, picture the list as the layout of the store.
I created a diagram to print and use to make it easier. The test run yesterday proved it was a real time saver. The categories also reminded me of a few items I needed while I was writing up the list.
Many grocery stores have an aisle layout map available. Inquire about one at the customer service desk. This is especially helpful after they decide to rearrange the store to confuse shoppers.
