My grocery shopping list is over two pages long on most days. I'm not sure if it's because we use so many thing around the house, or that I'm just indecisive. So, how long is your list? And, do you always buy every single item on it, once you're in the store?

Our grocery shopping least is just one page. We buy groceries for the whole month that's why we buy a lot. I'm the one who's listing all of the things we need so whenever we our in the store i make sure to buy all of the groceries i listed.

I shop once a week and have at least a page long list. I always buy everything on my list, plus a lot of other stuff. My house is the hang out house for my daughter and her friends, so we go through food like mad. It's so bad that her friends know when they take the last of something, to write it down on the list for next week shopping that we always have started. A lot of times since we are out in the country the cheerleaders will hold practice at our house. So I end up feeding them. But they also made my daughter cheerleading captain because of it. And let me tell you, if you think cheerleaders eat only healthy foods...you don't know cheerleaders...LOL

Hi, welcome to Mylot. I usually don't write a list but I should. it would make things a little easier for me. My husband always has a list when he shops.

When I go grocery shopping my list can be up to a page and a half but that is because I do one big shopping trip a month. I do try to buy everything that is on the list because if I put it there I must need it or at least thought that I needed it at the time the list was made. There are times that I can not find something that is on my list so I will just forgo it until I have to go back to get the perishables that I go back for at least two other times during the month.

My grocery list is always atleast one page long if not more, I like to buy alot of food..I like my house to be stacked with goodies LOL! I always get whats on my list and even alot of things that arent on my list I get..Im horrible in the grocery store. Evertime me and my guy go food shopping we always get 2 carts because we have a 4yr old daughter and she picks out alot of fruits and snacks she likes so our carts are always full.

I never have a list when I go for my groceries, which is a bad habbit. The reason why is that I forget somethimes things and than I have to go the shop again.
