To make grocery shopping for healthy meals fun, easy and motivational you should give a designed shopping list a try. I created a shopping list for myself to help me stay focused in picking up items that are necessary for my “clean eating” meal plan. My first grocery list was something that I made with a notepad and my label maker. It was a little time consuming to create, but it really kept me focused.
In order to cut down on prep time, I then decided to go to Vistaprint and design my own shopping list. The notepads that I designed only cost about $5 each and you get 50 sheets/notepad. This really motivates me to pick up my items on time (every 3-5 days) so that I can meal prep and bring my healthy lunch and snacks to work on a daily basis.
So, now I just clip my grocery list to my agenda and go! I check off items as I pick them up. This keeps me away from any aisle with items that can sabotage my grocery trip (e.g. pastries, candy, chips, soda, etc.).
How do you plan for shopping?
Peace and Love

Great idea! I keep a running list in my iPhone then text it to my husband when he goes shopping. But I always forget to delete items on the list from the previous week and we end up getting things we don’t need
I know I was using my iPhone also and I found that as I was running into a store and would forget to use it and I would go off of my memory. I then would realize once I got home that I didn’t use my iPhone list and forgot certain items. LOL. Now I just clip my list to my agenda and I go.
those lists are so cute! x
Thank you 😊
I love this idea! Making a template with items I should always be buying will help me stay organized and get out the store faster 🙂 Right now I just write down a list of everything I can remember right before I go. I wander the store and forget items all the time. Thanks for the tip!
That’s great! Happy shopping!!!😃
I might print out the first one if it’s okay with you! This us a GREATEST idea!
