I’m a pro grocery shopper, if I do say so myself. Working as the head chef at the yoga center taught me a thing or to about how to do “The Shop.”

First, make your menu for the week, even if tentatively. Go through what you already have, and what you’ll need. Type up a list to bring to the store, and cross off as you go. This’ll save you time dawdling in distraction-land. I write mine on my phone.
