I make a menu and then make a shopping list from the things I don't have to make the meals.
I always make sure to put the list in the same order the grocery store is laid out. I walk through fresh veggies first so fresh veggies are first on my list ... diary is last in the store so I put dairy last on the list.
I am an obsessive list maker. I also make my list based on the layout of the store. Drives my husband insane.
But I do not make a master meal list. I might have to rethink that. What I do is plan out my meals for say a 3 to 5 day period and buy everything I need for that. I keep some things stocked...like spaghetti sauce, enchilada sauce, potatoes, rice, etc. So even if they aren't on my menu for the week, I have them around...just in case.
