Welcome to Month by Month:

This blog is my own little version of organization central. We touch on just about every aspect of home, family, and holiday organization here. It is my hope that by blogging my experiences, I can grow as an individual and perhaps inspire others to try new things and think about everyday life a little differently. So please join us in organizing for life every month of the year!

Master Grocery Shopping List

Master Grocery Shopping List
Here's a photo of my Master Grocery Shopping List. Actually this photo only shows part of the list. I had another photograph of the whole list but it did not turn out as clear as I would have liked. If you are interested in seeing the whole list, just let me know and I will retake a photo of it, hopefully clearer and post it at a later date.
The main idea though is to create a master shopping list. I have actually tried two different ways. This photo shows the list set up as Categories. I have also set one up that follows the layout of my main grocery store. I think the categories one is easiest to use. Each week I post this list on the fridge and as I run out of things or think of something I need to get I use a highlighter to mark that item. When I look over my menus I mark what I need on the list also. This is a big time saver not only when getting ready to go shopping but because it means fewer trips to the store for forgotten items. If you have questions just let me know. It's not fancy but it works.
