I have been going slowly through the book “Home Schooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit” by Terri Maxwell. I am greatly enjoying this book! I am taking my time as each chapter has things she suggests you do. Some of them work for me, and some of them don’t. I realize this is because I am different that she is. I don’t have to do everything she does. Yet there are things that I am loving that she suggests!
One thing I love I am implementing today! She recommends making up master lists for things you need frequently. The first one that I knew I needed to implement was a grocery shopping list! It is time to go grocery shopping, so the timing is perfect!
Last night I wrote up a master grocery shopping list! I always have to take time to think and write it out monthly, this was a great idea! This morning I input the list into It will save me time every month, I won’t have to write it out! I just will print a copy and fill in the quantities.
I used Microsoft Word and created a 4 column table. I wrote in columns 1 and 3 the items for my list, and left columns 2 and 4 blank for the quantities that will change monthly.
Here is a snapshot of part of my list, just to give you an idea of what I’m doing
The F/N.Mkt are for the items that I get at the Farmers Market or the Natural Market and the $ are for me to check pricing and see where I can save $ buying that particular product!
I am really excited about this! I think it will work well and save me time!
I am planning to start themes weekly here in next week. I’d love to hear what you think about what I have planned, and any suggestions you have
