Part 3 of Once-A-Month Shopping ~
To get started with your grocery list, think about the various sections of a grocery store. You have dairy, fresh fruits & veggies, breads, etc. My grocery list is based off of this as well as how my pantry and cupboards are lined out. Come up with a way that works for you.
Here are my categories:

Now, take a look at your meals. What items do you need to make those specific meals?
What items do you use on a regular basis that are not covered by what is needed for your meals? What is currently in your pantry? The way I started was by taking my friend’s list and then taking off what our family never uses that her family does and adding what I needed for my meal list. This is one case where cheating is allowed!
