Keep a Shopping List on Your Computer

I keep a running list on my computer and update it every time I go shopping. It has 5 columns on it: Date

  • Item (including brand name)
    Ad
  • Size
  • Price
  • Store

    This helps me in 2 ways. First, it helps me to know how much I have to spend the next time out. Plus it helps me remember what brands to get and where. It also helps me keep track of the rise and fall of prices.

    I do too. It sure takes a lot of the work out of being frugal these days and doesn't take much time. I put mine in Excel and have several different sheets in the file. One for prices month to month, one for a shopping list that I use and change each week along with a coupon list, another for supplies I have and that need to be renewed like an ongoing inventory, another for the fall when I buy produce to dry, freeze and roast.
