Do you make a list before you go grocery shopping?

Do you make a list before you go grocery shopping? If so, do you stick to the list?

Every time I make a list I forget it either at home or in the car, so I gave it up. lol

Yes...however....I never remember to either actually take it with me or pull it out once in the store!

I always (try) to. Every now and then we might add something here or there, but only if it's on sale (or if I get a random preggo-craving for it).

I always have a list with me, or else I'll be wasting a lot of time circling around in the market, trying to figure out what else do I need.

Constantly making a list.

I have an app on my phone that I use to make a list. That way I can add things as I think of them wherever I happen to be. If my husband is going instead of me (which is usually the case), I can just print or email the list for him.

Nope. I like to live on impulse.

I always make a list otherwise I forget too many things. Mostly I stick to the list with the exception of the usual milk, bread and eggs types of purchases we make every week.

Same here. The app stores previous items entered so I don't have to remember anything!

I usually try to have a list, but we always end up buying stuff that wasn't on it, so it's probably pointless XDDD

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. If I am going to the store for just a few things, I won't write them down...and usually forget something.

I'm very bad about making a list. Though, most of the time I go to the store the same items aren't always there. So, we just buy what we think we need.

The wife makes a basic list and then goes from there with what ever looks good.

Yes, or I forget to pick up certain stuff. We have a magnetic post it pad that lives on the side of the fridge that we add stuff too when we need more and I take it with me when it's time to go shopping.

I have to or I forget what I went to the store for...part of the brain damage. I do happen to get other sale items if we need and use them.

Always...I make a menu out for a month at a time and make a grocery list for each week's recipes or foods. Works great for us and we don't buy a bunch of stuff we don't need.

My habit exactly. Make a list, check it twice but usually find something else to get!

Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. I usually go up and down the isles to get what I need. Also if it is something I forgot a couple times while at the store then I will write those items down so I do not do it again.

Usually we do, but we end up with lots of things that weren't in there too.

Rarely but if I do, I pretty much stick to it.

Absolutely! If not, I buy stuff I don't need. In fact, I keep an ongoing list on my ipod. Yes, I'm a Virgo.

If I don't make a list, I can't remember what I went for when I get there

sometimes, if I am going to try cooking something new. But most of the times, no. I know what I am short on and what I might need. Most of my recipes are in my head.

Nope but I'm not the main shopper. But when I am I will.

Usually I do. I tend to improvise though, especially with certain produce that might look better than others.
