Every week I make a "master list". By the end of the week it looks like this:
The first side is my grocery list. I make it according to how items are found in the grocery store. This prevents having to go back to an isle I've already passed.
I also put at the bottom corner of this side what recipes I plan on making that week. In the past, we were throwing out food because I had forgotten what recipes I had prepared for. Next to the recipes are how many Weight Watcher's points each is along with what book I can find the recipe. This square gets torn off and put on the fridge for the week.
The other side of the "Master List" has things I need or would like to accomplish by the end of the week. I enjoy crossing these things off. If they don't get crossed off they are added to the following week, I don't enjoy that.
Lastly, I fold the list in half and use it to store my coupons for the week.
