To help, I have used this ALL OUT OF list pad for several years and it works well. It has a magnet on the back so perfect to place on your fridge. It's manufactured by Knock Knock, and you can find it at any major book retailer.
3) If I do a meal plan for the week, or am having a food gathering, I will use the back side of the list to mark out each day and what I'm making. Then the list AND the meal plan are together. This is helpful if you are shopping and one of your items is not in stock. You can flip over your page and see if it will effect what you were planning on make and adjust on the fly accordingly.
4) If you run out of something be sure to mark it on the list. Get your family involved and have them do the same. If my husband uses the last of the peanut butter, he now knows to mark it on the list.
5) There have been times when I need to make a few stops to get all groceries based on selection. For example some items I need to go to Costco, some SuperStore, some Walmart or maybe even a specialty store. If this happens, I simply color code the list by using a highlighter. Yellow for Coscto, Pink for SuperStore, etc.
6) Coupons. I'm not a big coupon person, but if I do have one that I want to use, it goes on the fridge with a magnet beside my list so I don't forget it!
7) Lastly, I cross items off my list as I put them in my cart. Once home, if there were items I didn't pick up, I transfer them to the new list on my fridge for next week.
Happy shopping. Urg! ...and don't forget to use your recyclable grocery bags.
