Printable Grocery List Template
I’ve broken this basic grocery list into three pages to include as many staple ingredients as possible. By the way, don’t confuse “basic” grocery list with “skimpy” grocery store list; while this grocery list template may be missing niche specialty items, it has all of your staples covered! The first page of this master grocery list includes:
- Bread and Bakery Items
- Breakfast Foods
- Canned Goods
- Dairy and Fridge Items
- Frozen Foods
Tip: I think this master grocery list can be especially helpful for young adults and college students. (In other words, individuals who aren’t used to shopping for and feeding themselves.) Use this as a college student grocery list and combine it with other organizational and student printables such as:
The second page of the master grocery list template includes:
- Baking Ingredients
- Pasta and Rice
- Sauces and Oils
- Seasonings and Spices
- Baby Products
- Personal Products
Tip: As you keep a running grocery store list using this printable, write down the quantity of each item to the left of the product/ingredient name. That way you’ll know if you need one can of frosting or 10! 😉
As already mentioned, this printable makes a great college student grocery list; however, it has uses far beyond that. You can also use it to help you budget. Grocery list printables, saved up over time, can help you get an idea of how much of certain foods you’re buying on a regular basis. Combining a budget grocery list with your saved grocery receipts can give you a clear idea of just how much you’re spending on food and where you may be able to cut back or possibly switch to generic versions of products.
Bonus: Don’t currently budget? Not sure where to start? These free printable budget worksheets are a great intro to beginner budgeting!
The final page of the master grocery list template has space for:
- Household Products
- Paper and Plastic Goods
- Pet Products
The “Other” section allows you to add any additional products that you need to pick up that aren’t included on the grocery list template.
