Shopping Hack: The Weekly Shopping List


I don't know about you but the weekly trip to the supermarket it a dreadful experience for me. Yesterday I was left with a list and asked to go. No problem except the list only had 3 things on it. Cue me wandering 'round the house for 20 minutes trying to figure out what we needed.There has recently been a conversation on the Analogue GTD group about managing Grocery/Shopping lists and I decided to take some of their advice and organise my shopping habbits.

Each week we have roughly the same thing so it seems stupid to write out a new list each time, invariably missing something off, so I give you the "Weekly Shopping List".


Shopping List in PDF Format

The list consists of all of the groceries that I tend to get every week, on the top is a small magnetic clip so I can stick it on the front of the fridge. The idea then is that whenever anyone uses something they either check it off to say it needs replacing or write down the quantity of the item needed.

The list is organised (as best I could do) in the way that my local Tescos (Boo!, but only supermarket for 12 miles) is laid out, aisle by isle and there's space at the bottom to add extra goods.

There's a PDF version if you want to use the same list I do, or you can download the Open Office or Excel Versions if you want to change anything.

Of course, it doesn't stop you having to put up with the morons in the store but it's a start.


The following versions are available to download:

Download the PDF Weekly Shopping List


Download the Open Office Weekly Shopping List

Download The Excel Weekly Shopping List

Please feel free to comment on additions/changes etc.
