i bet most of you or have created a list when go shopping or even buying groceries for the week...but just curious if ever there is one item which you will always tend to forget writing or whatever if your not making any list? and not able to buy it and its only when you arrive home that you remember or find out? im always like that...forgetting small items such as salt and toilet bowl cleaner...what about you guys ?

Hey vanities! If I don't write something down on my shopping list I will definitely forget to buy it! I have a habit of forgetting whatever isn't on my list! I try to write down things when I'm home as I think of them so that I do remember to get them when I do go grocery shopping for that reason! I still manage to always forget things anyway and I get so angry with myself! I have to walk to the grocery store which isn't really close to where I live and take a taxi cab home so I hate forgetting things!

I always forget to buy something on my shopping list. Its just funny when that happens. Even when i write it down i forget to get it. Isn't that weird.

Yes, i tend to forget things at times.. that's why i always make a shopping list before i do my weekly grocery shopping.. i always ask hubby if there are other items i need to buy for the house.. two heads are better than one.. =)

Some times that does happen...with kleenex or toilet paper! Then I get home and am almost angry with myself. I can't stand running out of toilet paper!

Toilet tissue, I forget every time. I don't go down that aisle unless I have it on my list. I use rags for cleaning so I don't do paper towels usually.

I do make lists and even with the list I tend to forget something on the freaking list. My mind is always distracted with telling my kids NO, while we are out and about so that makes me just forget things.... It's always something simple but needed, dish soap, pepper... Makes me mad that i gotta go back out to get it, or wait til the next time we run out to a store.

Hello vanities, Well, it always happen to me! I prepare my list before hand and keep checking and changing the list until I have time to go and shop. At the end, I will end up buying stuff not in the list and forget to buy something important that I didn't put in the list!

I agree, i do that too. Though, i have made my list of grocery items to buy, there is always something that i would miss buying and realize it only when i get home. Then,i would just ask my youngest daughter to buy it from it from those nearby stores in our place.

i also make make shopping list before i rush to the grocery. it makes life easier for me if i have a list, i feel i have control over my life and besides it saves a lot of money. this is to keep me in check with what i am suppose to buy and hopefully won't be tempted to buy the none essentials.

I also do that - I'll forget to write down something that we don't regularly buy, but needed on this occasion.
