Hey, Probably one of the first steps I need to take in becoming more organised in my cooking, is to write shopping lists, the reason I don't currently do this is mostly because I feel restricted by them - yessss I could write a list and buy additional foods, but in general I love to shop freely and buy whatever takes my fancy when I'm in the shop! Also, some of you may agree with me that there's also an element of not wanting to buy a full jar/ pack of whatever, when the recipe you're looking at only calls for a teaspoon of that ingredient, and then you won't have a use for it thereafter! The obvious problem in not creating lists, is that I then don't have any specific ingredients for specific recipes. How do you guys manage your shopping/ recipes? Do you plan what you'll eat for the whole week and shop per what it says on your list? or do you have a shopping list for one/ two recipes that you'll cook and freestyle the rest? or do you never use shopping lists and work with what you have once you're home, maybe creating your own new inventions along the way? What do you find to work best?
