market shopping list (+ free printable!)

Printable DIY Shopping List

If you are looking for ways to save money and reduce stress, I highly suggest planning out your meals. It's awesome to get home after a long day of work, look in the fridge, & see options. Heather & I have been planning out our meals on a weekly basis for over a year now, & it's a game changer for real. While I've never calculated it, we've definitely saved money by going out less & not letting any food go to waste.

I've made this printable for easy weekly shopping plans. Meals are planned in the left hand column, & any ingredients you need for those meals goes in the right. Easy peasy!

Materials needed for a printable grocery list

Step 1. // Stack your lists on your cardboard so they are lined up at the top. Clamp in place, then apply a line of glue along the top. Make sure the glue permeates all of the papers & the cardboard. Smooth the glue with your finger if necessary.

Step 2. // Move your binder clips to the top & let dry for a few hours!

Make it magnetic to hang on your fridge!

Step 3. // While you're waiting for your shopping list to dry, adhere your magnets to the back. Any magnet will do - you could even cut up an old refrigerator magnet. Apply to the back with tacky glue or more of the neutral PH adhesive.

Now go plan your weekly shopping! Save that money! Reduce that stress!


P.S. Hang that pretty list on a colorful DIYed refrigerator.

  1. Yaaas!! Kristie and I meal-plan every week, and it's a game-changer in terms of saving money. It's really nice to be able to plan to use expensive ingredients in more than one meal :)

    1. The way we grocery shop now makes me feel like a FOOL for not planning before! It also makes me feel so adult-y. :)
