Just yesterday, I started making a shopping list with random things that I needed to get at the store. Once I got to the store I realized that there was no list in sight.
Have you ever noticed that it’s “easy” to remember the ingredients for a meal but even more easy to forget to pick up those “extras” like contact solution or ketchup or Parmesan cheese?
For me, the answer is A LOT.
I end up making multiple trips to the store because I either forget to write things down on my list, I don’t make a list at all, or I lose the list that I’ve started. Completely inefficient.
