I’m a little late showing you this, but here is a screenshot of the simple excel sheet I use to track the price of the main grocery items I purchase.

Please note that we eat very simply. I don’t cook anything too complicated. Ever. And I don’t bake at all! :)

Price Book:

Price Book


I’m hoping the sheet is quite simple to understand, even though I forgot the column headers. Across the top, in every section, it should read: Product/Regular Price/Offer Price.

If you’ve seen my grocery hauls you’ll know that I buy a mixture of generic and named brand items, it just depends on the product. In general I’m aiming to buy every item when there’s an offer on – I check supermarket websites for price reductions – it doesn’t always work with the weekly items, but I still try.

There may be a few rarely used products missing, but in general these are all the (grocery) items that I buy.

I have a similar sheet for household and toiletry items.

Ok I think that’s it. Please let me know if you have any questions.

In 2014 my husband & I downsized our home to speed up our quest for Financial Freedom. We swapped our large three bed house, for a small two bed apartment to clear our mortgage and give us enough budget freedom to travel and still save for the future. Our dream, after achieving Financial Freedom, is to spend part of every year living abroad.

    Laura, this is cool. It’s a really great way of tracking how much things cost. Do you keep prior months’ costs on extra tabs, or do you just overwrite this one?

    It’s also a reminder to me to upload my default shopping list to there’s value!


  2. That’s a short list! I am more swayed by variety and trying different things I see at the grocery store.

    Do you bring up this spreadsheet on your cell phone when shopping?
