Grocery Shopping at Target

I think I've mentioned before that I do most of my shopping at Target, including my grocery shopping.  I have tried shopping at Walmart, and did save a little money, but I usually can't get over the fact that it takes me 3 minutes to get from my garage to the Target Parking lot... so I end up shopping there most of the time!  I've recently started making my grocery list in a Word document while watching TV, and then I just print it off and go to the store.  There has been one very important step missing though, a template designed for my Target with the isle numbers and categories right there for me to plug my list into!  Last time I went grocery shopping I spent some time in each isle writing down everything on the big signs above the isles, so I could go home and make a template on Excel. 

I wanted to be able to create my list without having to remember what was in each isle, and be able to cruise through Target without retracing my steps. So I came up with this.   Feel free to take it and use it and adjust it if your Target it set up differently.  If it doesn't let you adjust it when you save it to your computer, let me know and I'll try and fix it so you can make your adjustments. 

Also if you're interested in a Walmart list, go here. 

Have fun shopping!!

Great idea! That would save me so much time. I'm always having to retrace my steps at the grocery store! Thanks for the tip.

Amazing! Seriously! Can you do one for Costco? :)

Thanks! I got the idea from Jeni at "At Home With My Kiddos", she did the one from Walmart!

T,A,K,E: I don't shop at Costco, but I would imagine you could, I've never been in one so I'm not sure what set up they have, but I bet you could come up with something similar for Costco!

Thanks ladies for following my blog! I've been reading each of your blogs for a while now and just finally officialy added them to my blog list!

Abby - what a great idea! We also shop at Super Target. I am "borrowing" your template for when hubby shops - this should make things to much simpler for him!
