It’s easy to collect excess stuff and food in the kitchen and pantry, and it’s easy to lose focus and forget how to set up an efficient kitchen or a useful, healthy menu plan. So, during 31 Days to Simplified Grocery Shopping, we’ll take the necessary steps to simplify and streamline our food-related efforts.
Yesterday: Design Your Grocery Store Route
Grocery Shopping Tip: Categorize your shopping list based on your grocery store route.
If your grocery list were categorized in the order of the way you go through the store, then you don’t have to spend time looking through the entire list at every pause, or realize near the end of the store that you missed an item back at the opposite end.
If you want to be in and out of the grocery store in as little time as possible, then the best way to accomplish that is to set up your grocery list so the items you buy are in the order you’ll walk by them in the store. With the grocery store route already planned, this isn’t complex at all!
With a grocery list so conveniently laid out, you’ll spend less time and less effort at the grocery store.
Tomorrow: Prepackaged food is a trick.
Mystie Winckler began menu planning at 11 years old when her mom delegated one dinner a week to her. Marrying at 19, she’s had a lot of practice over the years. But between growing and homeschooling her family, meal planning often requires brain power that just isn’t there any more. Simplified Dinners is her solution to take the effort and thought out of healthy, frugal cooking. And now it is available for you, too!
