Below is a free printable errands and shopping list template you can use to keep track of what you've got to do on errands and shopping day each week.
Everyone's got errands to run, plus additional shopping that needs to be done periodically beside just for groceries.
You can just do these things when you remember them, or when you urgently must get them done, but honestly that isn't very efficient.
Sometimes errands are last minute and it can't be avoided, but most of the time a bit of pre-planning can save you sooooo much time.
So the way to use this template is quite simple. Print a copy out and put it up on your refrigerator or family bulletin board, and then during the week as you realize you need to do something, or need to buy something at a store that is not your normal grocery store, go ahead and jot it down.
If you want to use it to make sure you don't forget regularly used household items check out my article on how to do it here.
I personally suggest having a designated time every few days or at the least once a week where you plan to run all those errands and make those purchases all at once.
If you plan your trip and route you can save time and travel time as well. So on that designated errands day (or it could just be an hour, or whatever is needed) take a couple of minutes, fill out anything else on your list that needs to be done that you hadn't already considered and then just bring the whole list with you. It will act as your to do list for these errands and shopping list all at once, and you won't forget anything you needed to do.
Simple, but it works!

Once you declutter one type of item in your home I bet you'll want to declutter some more. After all, decluttering gives you a great reward for even a small investment of time and energy.
The Declutter 365 system is designed to help you declutter, over the course of a year, your entire house, with just 15 minutes of decluttering each day!
Hundreds of thousands of people use this proven system to get rid of their clutter, and bring peace and calm back to their homes.
Declutter 365 works to guide you to clear the clutter without overwhelm, focusing on just one small area at a time, and without making a huge mess in the process, so you see consistent forward progress without all that "messy middle" that makes it even harder to function in your home than before you started.
In addition to building a daily decluttering habit, the Declutter 365 program, along with the accompanying 52 Week Organized Home Challenge, teaches you the skills, habits, routines, and mindsets necessary to maintain the clutter free and organized state of your home from now on, so it'll never be as messy and cluttered as it is right now, ever again.
If you haven't already, make sure to get your copy of this year's Declutter 365 annual calendar here (it's FREE!), find today's date, and do 15 minutes of decluttering on the day's mission. Then, repeat again tomorrow, and again and again. Over the course of the next year, if you do this 15 minutes per day, you'll declutter your whole house!
Right now you're decluttering your pantry and other food storage areas, and there's a lot of stuff to declutter in this space.
I've done the hard work of breaking down these tasks into smaller more manageable steps for you, so you don't get overwhelmed or worry you're forgetting a task, and you can go at the pace you want, whether that's fast or slow.
In addition, you can tackle these decluttering tasks in whatever order you want when you use these checklists!
