About a year ago I got really tired of scribbling the same hundred items onto a sheet of notebook paper and then leaving it sitting on the kitchen counter when I headed out the door. So I got onto my Google Drive, threw a table on a page, and built a printable list.
I LOVE having a paper list in my hand as I grocery shop, so I can see the whole big picture at once. But if I leave my list behind, I can pull up my google drive app on my phone and have the entire list available to edit as I go. Here’s my June list:
Because I shop at Sam’s Club I rotate what months I buy things like toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, rice, beans, and etc. This month those things aren’t on the list, but I am getting bulk baby wipes, pecans, oats, dryer sheets, toothpaste, and etc. It works well.
So I went ahead and made a blank grocery list format for you to go ahead and copy and paste into your own document! For android users, the “drive” app in your google folder will let you access it on the go if you create it in google drive. For mac users…. I don’t even know. I’m a Samsung Galaxy gal, so it’s been 4 years since I’ve had an iPhone. Sorry.
With a monthly pay cycle my groceries probably look VERY different from most people’s, but I rotate so many bulk things that I keep a pretty well stocked pantry. From this list I will be replinishing perishables, making a batch of marinara sauce, making hummus and granola, and will have the followng meal plan:
Meatloaf And Mashed Potatoes
Grilled Chicken Salads
Brown Beans And Cornbread
Lentils and Rice
Veggie and Chicken Skillet Over Rice
CrockPot Pot Roast
Cucumber and Salmon Sushi
Hot Dog and Hamburger Cookouts
Spaghetti and Green Beans
Spaghetti Squash with Marinara And Fried Eggs
Italian Chicken, Potato and Green Bean Bake
Tater Tot Casserole
Boiled Eggs and Raisins
French Fries and Peanut Butter Apples
Banana Oat Healthy Cookies
Scrambled Eggs With Veggies or cheese
Fried potatoes and eggs
Honey Pecan Granola
Every 8-10 days I go for eggs, milk, coconut milk, lettuce and spinach, bananas and apples, and tomatoes. If I want to make something like stuffed bell peppers or need hot dog buns (we almost never eat bread) then those go on the weekly list as well.
