Organising your List

The preliminary list (ie the before shopping list)

This is a list of meals that I decide that I will include for the next fortnight. The current way that I organise my list is to list them by key ingredient.

For example:

  • CHICKEN dishes
  • MINCE dishes
  • ASIAN dishes
  • PASTA dishes
  • SAUSAGE dishes
  • OTHER dishes

Once I've listed the dishes under the headings, I have a rough idea of how much meat to buy and then I can start making a list of other ingredients.
