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!
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.
