I found this wonderful printable PDF from which I included here (GROCERY LIST) that I use every single week.  What I like about it the most is I can write menu planwhat we’re eating on the left and then all the things I need to buy goes on the right.  I can’t tell you how many times I would make this long elaborate list, get to the store and buy it all and I would forget what the heck I was making!!!  What a waste of money!

Now I write down all my menus for the week and what I need.  But the best part is I don’t throw the list out, what I do is I fold it in half so just the menu is showing and hang it on the fridge with a clip magnet and attach all my recipes behind it!

  1. Hello! I just found your website and must I say you are a blessing! My fiance and I have been on this no processed food diet and all we knew how to make for side dishes (not from the box) were mac and cheese and mashed potatos. I am so glad I stumbled across your website. This is going right into the bookmarks.

  2. Hi! 🙂 Just curious. Isn’t bread processed? (I love grilled cheese, and saw it on your list… but bread is bad, right??) Do you make your own? Or is bread not considered a bad processed item? Thank you!!

    • hi Christy … not ALL bread is bad. I tend to lean towards whole wheat if I am at the supermarket but when I have the time I really like to go to the bakery as they make it fresh daily. You can even ask them what they put in it too. 🙂
