Do you make a shopping list before you go out?

Absolutely! I am a HUGE list maker. Honestly, if I don't, it is inevitable that I WILL forget something. Preggo brain turned into mommy brain and my memory stinks.

I used to and it really does help me with my budget but I haven't done it in a while. I find that it takes me a lot longer if I have to make a list and to me my time is more important to me than whatever savings I get from it.

YES, this is me too. Its not so much that I will buy all kinds of extra stuff, but I will forget so much. Then I'll get halfway home (going to the store is about a 20-30 min trip one way) and realize I forgot something we really needed. Then by the time I get to make another trip we've wasted so much on gas. I no longer trust my prego/mommy brain to do all the thinking for me. I need paper brains too lol.

Add pre-menopause brain on top of all that and you have me.

90% of the time I do, and 100% of the time when I'm going for a big savings trip. If I'm just picking up a few things, the list doesn't always get made! I do also find that I forget at least 2 things if I don't have a list.

I always make a list...I will never remember everything if I don't. I am not great at sticking to it...especially if I see something on sale I was not expecting to be on sale.

I do! I will either forget something or get a lot of things that I shouldn't.

I always always make a list. I can't just go to the store and shop. I only take $100 with me and I go every 2 weeks...so I have to make a list. After buying what I need, if I have extra, I will get some things that I want.
