At times, I have forgotten coupons, grocery lists, reusable bags, etc. when I grocery shop. This can be very frustrating. I now keep a small bag with all my necessities. I place my car keys on top of the bag so I don't forget the bag. When I don't really need the bag, I place the keys on whatever needs to go with me.
When the weather starts to get hot, I have to remember to take ice packs with me for perishables. I write "ICE" on an index card and keep it with my grocery list. I am no longer frustrated when I shop. Before using this idea, I would always have that feeling of "I know I forgot something..." when I grocery shop.
