When you write your grocery list, separate the list into different
categories, for example, "Meat", "Dairy", "Produce", and "Bread". This
will make your shopping trip quicker and easier.
Write your grocery list in the kitchen so that you can check to see what you have on hand.
Once your list is complete, check your newspaper for coupons. But only use coupons
for the things you buy anyway! Also, don't forget to check for local grocery
specials online or in your newspaper.
