Initially, most times I don't prepare shopping list before I go for shopping, but now a days I think it is good to prepare shopping list before going for shopping. Most times I buy things I don't prepare to buy during shopping. To cut down the expense, it is always great to prepare of list of things to buy before shopping. Do you prepare shopping list for shopping?

Preparing shopping list always helps to prevent overspending and try to buy things that you prepare in the shopping list.

I do prepare shopping list so that I do not forget things I want to buy.

There are some times when I make a shopping list so I can make sure I get the things that I need. I usually make a list of things that I need if I am making something special or when I am planning a party or something. I kind of like making a little shopping list, makes me feel motherly and wifely.

I also think it is good to make a small list at least while shopping or if one goes for short shopping one should try to remember all the things they needed to buy.

when i go shopping,i make it a point to prepare a shopping list and try to stick to it. it not only makes my trip to the grocery easier but i find that by grouping things that belong to an aisle also makes me do this errand faster. it also is a plus in finding things that i need. in this time when prices are skyrocketing, a list keeps me in track of my budget. i have also observed that kids should not be brought along when shopping as they tend to add things which are not included in my list and making me go out of my budget.

I also think we can find things we need easily and also can keep things on budget during shopping.

When i do shopping i never prepare any list.I recall item by item from memory.I go through each and every item in the super market and select what ever the item i required.

I think it is good to note some items so that we don't forget. If a person can remember the items they want to buy then it is great.

Yes, of courseā€¦I always prepare a list before I go shopping . shopping is like an intoxication and if you are not careful, you will easily overshoot your budget. I buy things which are on my list and then if I do have some money left, I indulge myself.

I sometimes do prepare a shopping list. However even when I do, I often forget about it before I leave or even that I have it with me when I'm shopping LOL I am actually quite disciplined in my shopping and even without a list I don't usually buy things that I had not planned to buy, but sometimes there is one thing or other that ends up in the cart - usually the kids add it hehe

I always have to make a list otherwise I will end up forgetting something or will end up with a few extra items I didn't really need.

Hi, ajithlal. I used to not prepare any shopping list before going to shop. But after i have a baby, i find myself easily to forget somethings that i initially wanted to buy. Perhaps i have too many things to remember now that make me have bad memories. Therefore, nowadays, i will always prepare a shopping list before going for shopping. It is important for me to make this preparation now and you are right, somehow it helps me to cut down the expenses of unnecessaries. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

I currently do shopping for my mum as she is not well, and she always gives me a list when I go shopping for her, I have the car so it's easy to get everything she needs twice a week, she tells me that if I see any bargains to buy them. I find it so much easier with a list then I cross off the items as I get them, and it also means I don't forget anything!
