Grocery list to keep track of multiple stores

Hello Failsafers!

Excel FAILSAFE grocery list by store

I have a grocery spreadsheet that I use to keep track of which stores carry the products that we need…I am currently balancing 3 major grocery chains plus our Co-Op for all of OUR needs.

The way that I use it is this…

1) There are column header areas that I put my personal grocery store names into.

2) I mark an “x” in the box for the food item & corresponding store column so that I know which stores are carrying the item.

I keep a Master list on file.

3) I use a copy of the Master list on my refrigerator to keep track as I run out of groceries…there is a column to the left of the food items that I use to mark quantity that I need.

It is a bit timely compiling the original list, but saves a lot of time & gas trying to drive from store to store to track items down.   As always, we post what works for our families and hope that it can help yours too.

Hello.

I have 2 shopping lists that I use…this one I use on the refrigerator as a running record of what I need to buy.  It is also a great list to take along if you are shopping at one or two stores.  I have listed some “notes” in () and/or some product names that I have found useful.  Please feel free to comment on any other brands that you may have found in your area(s) and I will add them.  Hopefully this will make a nice US brands list also.

****I will be posting another list, later on, that you can use when balancing multiple grocery stores for all of your FAILSAFE shopping.  That one I use to keep track of which stores carry each product…Kim uses it to also keep track of price per store…smarty pants:)

Thanks and have a great day!
