If I shop without a list, I end up buying many processed or packaged foods. A shopping list coupled with buying specific menu items helps me stay focused. I am not a good cook, so a recipe gives me step-by-step and ingredient-by-ingredient directions. Read: Idiot proof!
I would be ideal candidate for an online grocery shopping situation. It is a pity I live too far out of the delivery area of a Giant Food Peapod or a Safeway delivery service. I would shop by looking at a the different options and clicking. I do save more money by shopping in the store as I can search the aisles to match my purchase to coupons, in store deals, and savings club specials.
What’s your grocery shopping style?
