The rule in our house is that when we start running low on something, anything really, it goes on the shopping list. We then buy it when I do the weekly grocery shop.
Kendra is on a special formula that only comes in these tiny cans. It's also very difficult to find as only two stores near us stock it, so we have to be organised about the timing.
At her current rate of eating, we need 6 of these tins every month.
I learned my lesson once when I had to drive to about 4 different places to find her formula!
I'm very strict about not going to the shops except on my designated shopping day (the more I go, the more I spend - is that only me?) so here's how I keep track of when we're running low.
I mark the top of the can with numbers and then I stack the cans with the highest numbers in the front.
When I reach out and finally pull out the can marked 1, I know it needs to go on the shopping list.
Just in case someone else opens the can, I also write last can on the lid so there is absolutely NO confusion about when it needs to go on the list.
How often do you go grocery shopping and do you use a shopping list?
P.S. Happy Thanksgiving to all my US readers! Enjoy your day.
