This week we're talking about grocery shopping. Now, I personally enjoy this task, but most people see it as a real chore. How do you manage your shopping?
- Do you shop yourself or do you delegate it to another member of the household?
Elizabeth: I do it myself.
- How often do you shop?
Elizabeth: I shop 2-3 times a week. Does that seem like a lot? My grocery store is in the same parking lost as my gym and drugstore (I'm lucky!) so it's very convenient making multiple shopping trips a week pretty easy.
- Do you use a master grocery list?
Elizabeth: Yes, I have a list of basic pantry supplies I keep in my kitchen, and I have a basic list I get every week (small container of milk for coffee, 1/2 dozen eggs, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, lettuce, avocado and carrots)
- Are there any apps that are helpful?
Elizabeth: I use Grocery Pal on my iPhone and it's very easy to update on-the-fly when reading recipes or looking in my fridge. I just wish it also had a web-based component.
How do you keep grocery shopping simple?
