Do you keep a grocery list handy? If not, you might be interested in the benefits of keeping one.
A grocery list…
1 Saves time. A list helps you limit the mindless wandering and figuring out what you need to buy for dinner or the next few days. Thinking about it in the store takes longer and you overbuy.
2. Encourages meal planning. Take some time to think about what you need instead of items you want. Meal planning saves time and you waste less food.
3. Saves money. When you make a list before going to the grocery store, you’re more likely to stick to the aisles that have the foods on your list as well as spend less on impulse purchases throughout the store or at the checkout line.
4. Reduces food waste. Buying more than you and your family will eat may lead to food spoiling. You also have more waste more when you shop without a list and are hungry.
5. Keeps you healthier and skinnier. Making a healthy food list at home will keep you on track. Shopping without a list may steer you down an aisle with unhealthy choices too tempting to resist resulting in having food in the house that causes weight gain.
