Do you ever end up at the grocery store without a list? Do you have more things in your cart then on your list? This can eat away at your wallet by not having a grocery list. Over at Hello Cuteness has a great printable grocery list. I really find that having a list helps me keep on “task” at the store.
You can even have the kids that you nanny make the grocery list and check for “inventory” before heading out to the store. I love how she has the list broken up into the different categories. I think this is a great “life lesson” to help kids master.
