# Shopping/Price List- Budget101 Discussion List

1. ## Shopping/Price List

Is there a shopping list already made up anywhere that has room for

quantity and price and auto calculates the total?

2. ## Shopping/Price List

I have on going on Google Spreadsheets - my husband thinks I'm crazy because

I pre-calculate exactly what I'll buy and how much it is going to be and

tweak the numbers until it is all just right. LOL

It is not very fancy but took me all of 5 minutes to make. One tab for each

grocery store (I go to two stores each week). A column for the name, the

price, the quantity, the total, and then I make the line colored if I need

to go pull a coupon to get this deal. Total at the bottom and the front

sheet will carry forward the other store total so I can see it all together.

Sometimes I will insert the "regular price" (pre-coupon) when the store

offers a deal if you buy "\$40 of this brand" (which is calculated from

regular prices) so I can be sure to get the deal.

That is close to what I did. I made a list of the items I purchase

from each dept. Then I made a column for each store I shop at and

then I put down what each costs at each store. I added a column for

best price, unit price and cost of making it at home. I am still

filling mine out but it makes it easier to make a list. I make a list

of what I need and then compare the prices to decide what I am buying

at each store. Go in with a list and put the blinders on.
