The Shopping List

i need to go grocery shopping. i have a list on my computer that i made and it's in sections. the problem is it's based on a store i used to go to, but don't anymore. now i think i may have to rework the list. see, this new store that i go to has the sections in a different order. the list doesn't flow like it used to. of course i could just leave the list alone and just find the section on the list when i get to it in the store. the worst part of this whole thing is that it bugs me. i don't want it to bug me. i think it's ridiculous that it bugs me. i just know that after tonight i'm gonna redo this list.

I would have to redo the list. I find that if I go to a different store I either don't make a list, or I make the list according to what I need for specific meals.

I usually have the list in my head so I don't have to worry what order it's in. My question for you is, what order to you put your food on the belt at checkout?

I don't think its ridiculous that it bugs you. Shopping can be a pain, especially if you are on a budget. You dont' want to get caught up in buying things you didn't intend to in the first place. Having a list based on how the store is set up is the easiest way to avoid unneeded spending and waisting time. I can see how having to redo your list and learning the new store would be frustrating. :)

i put the food on the belt in the order that it comes out of my cart, but i try to put like things together. soups with soups, frozen with frozen. they are mostly like that in the cart anyway.
