Why I Made a Shopping List Template (Organized by My Trader Joe’s Layout)
For quite a while, I was a huge fan of grocery list apps—they save paper, make it easy to add items as soon as you remember them, and are simple to share with other household members. But at a certain point I realized one unavoidable fact: I hate fiddling with and staring at my phone while I shop. So I gave up my high-tech habits and returned to the low-fi, totally nerdy grocery list template I created during my pre-smartphone days. And you know what? It’s awesome.
