when you go to the grocery, do you already have a list to buy?

I hate any kind of shopping. I want in and out, so I'm a 'list' person. Grab what's on the list, no dilly-dallying, and out the door. When I make a list, I also attach any relevant coupons. So, again, no finagling with coupons while in the store, I already have them handy.

sometimes i dont make a list too but then when i just walk through the store picking up what i like, i go out of budget most of the time. It is nice however, to just take time in looking over the products in the grocery, that is, if we are not in a hurry. :)

Hi katrinapaz! I usually make a list of the things I needed to buy than picking up anything. I do this every time I buy groceries so I would not end up buying unnecessary things. I also do thing so I wont be out of budget and also saves a lot of time. Happy mylotting!

Well I just pick up things I want to buy, I don't bring list because I'm so lazy to prepare list, but when I go to grocery I already have in mind what I really want to buy and I admit sometimes I have tempted to buy things I really don't need, that's the disadvantage of not preparing first before buying. But of course I always make it a point that I buy the sale item. I also agree we must bring list of items to buy rather than just going to the grocery without preparation to save time and money.

Hi Katrina! Welcome to Mylot! Yes I do have a list with me. I checked out what stocks we don't have at home and save it on my cellphone. Then I go over the list and pick it up on the grocery store. Sometimes though, it cannot be helped that I picked something not on my list. But basically it is still food and I don't save on food. It is better to buy healthy foods than pay for medicines later. But I still keep track of my spending as I am working around a weekly grocery budget.
