just a word of advice, when buying any big item, tv, phone etc, make sure to check it first, not so much to see if it works, but to make sure its in one piece, or the right pieces, i bought a tv at wm last night and got home, started to cut open the box and realized something was wrong, opened it, and it was busted all to pieces, and whoever had done this, had left their screwdriver behind so i spent the day running back to the wm and replacing it. i kept the screwdriver!!

I have a list of every item I ever buy on our computer. From food to loo rolls to sundry items I buy occasionally, listed in groups (fresh fruit and veg, meats, sauces, toiletries,cleaning items, frozen) according to where I'll find the item in the supermarket. Once a week I simply adjust the list and print it off. The Original List is saved as "read only" so remains unchanged. As a package becomes empty (or near empty) I make a note to replace it

Benefit is; you also don't buy unnecessary items and with a full fridge have no excuse for takeaways! Grouping the items saves time.
