Making a List. Don't Leave Home Without It!
Don't even try to go shopping without this life saver!
So my August challenge Operation: #HealthUpYourHome is getting off to a shaky start. It's what, Aug 14th already?! We've been unpacking and navigating boxes for 2 weeks now. The process is slow when you're busy and active. I get home from teaching at night and all I want to do is eat, veg out and hit the hay.
I FINALLY unpacked my home office boxes today and am realizing I'm desperate for some organizing solutions. I don't even have a desk yet! Don't make the mistake Micah and I did by going shopping and accidentally leaving the list at home. We've been back to Ikea 5 times now to make returns and buy things we forgot. (Eyeballing a book shelf and "thinking" it will fit is not a wise idea.)
The same thing happens to me when I go grocery shopping. If I don't have a list, I come home with bags of goodies I don't need and end up whining "there's nothing to eat!" all week long. I've since started keeping my list on my phone since it's rare I forget that at home.
Moral of the story?
Whether it be groceries, home shopping, or school shopping, Always Make A List- don't go shopping without one. It's ESSENTIAL!
Do you always use a list? What's the craziest idem you've bought without one? Comment here, Tweet with #HealthUpYourHome, or post it to the Motivated Nutrition facebook page.
