How to make a shopping list

This post will show you the best tips or hacks to make an efficient shopping list, in order to save money and not over buy.

1. Make an inventory
This might sound a bit crazy but trust me, it’s really helpful. Write down every single product you have. Make different lists: a food list (don’t forget to check the expiration date!), a hygiene list, a household list and a medicine list (again, check the dates).

2. Plan out your meals
Write down all your lunch ideas, dinner recipes and snacks that you’d normally have throughout the month/week, depending on the shopping list you’re making (a weekly or a monthly one).


3. Check your coupons
Go through your coupons and see if any of them match the items on your list, if they do, don’t forget to bring them (keep them close to your shopping list). See the expiring date of the remaining coupons. If they’re close to the end, you might want to buy the products on it, doing so you’ll be saving money and making the most out of the existing coupons.

4. Make the shopping list

Now that you finally gathered all of your data, you are ready to start writing down your shopping list. Write down all the needed items and have fun with it!


That’s it, I hope you enjoyed it and thank you for reading it. I’ll see you in my next post.

Top 5 tips to save money on your household

1. Buy reusable cleaning clothes
This will save you a lot of money. You’ll just have to put them in the washer once you’re done using them and it’s beneficial for the environment!

2. Figure out when it’s cheaper to do your laundry
Depending on the time of the day that you’re doing your laundry, you’ll be able to save energy and money. Just check your contract.

3. Buy your supplies only on sale
Get your supplies when they’re on sale, there are amazing deals and it will make you save so much money!

4. Have a little stack at home
This tip goes along with the previous one. When they’re on sale, instead of getting just one, get a couple and have a little stack of them. You’ll pay less for all of the products and you won’t have to worry about it every month.

5. Make some supplies yourself 
If you have the time, then you should definitely give this one a go! There are so many recipes online. They’re quite easy to make and I love making them, specially the all purpose sprays. This will save you a lot of money and it’s really good for your health and the environment.
