I was trying to get ready to go grocery shopping. The three kids were roaming the house, slamming doors, crying to be picked up, asking again to use the iPad after I had said no twelve times and I was at wits end!
Trying to get everything done with three kids in tow is hard, overwhelming and often frustrating. I have been working on ways to keep things streamlined, otherwise I will never get anything completed.
The Printable Grocery List
One of my favorite workarounds has been my printable grocery list.
I created a spreadsheet and listed out our most common grocery items. I grouped like items together, and tried to keep them in the order they appear in the store.
Now when it is time to shop I just circle what we need and off we go!
I even print them out six at a time so I always have one on the fridge to add to during the week. Anything that is not a standard item just gets written in on the margin.
It’s a great way to get the kids involved too! They can circle words when I am making the list and cross things out when we get them at the store.
