What I have learned since first designing the full-version list is that sometimes I need just a few items from the store. For example – when you forget an item … or you find yourself in the middle of baking and realize you have run out of a key ingredient … or you just need some “essentials” to get you by until your next big shopping day.
I went into our local grocery store and asked what the key ingredients were that most people needed. I learned of about eighteen items, and only these items are listed on this grocery list. There are a few blank lines added in case you need something not on the list.
This short list has a check-off box (for those that prefer it) and then right next to it is a small blank line for the quantity needed for that particular item. Personally, I only enter something there if I need more than one – otherwise the space just stays blank.
The Essentials Only Grocery List is approximately 4.25 inches wide x 5 1/2 inches long. To save paper, the PDF displays four lists on one regular 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of paper. You can print them out four to a page, and cut however you choose.
Thanks so much, and I hope you enjoy!
