Making a master grocery list so you don't run out

Creating a master list of common staples that you find a family member uses the last of - but then never tells anyone - can be a timesaver. On your fridge, post a list of common items your family tends to either go through quickly, or frequently used items that you never think to check unless someone says that it is all out.

Here is a list of frequently found items on the grocery list

  • Milk
  • Cereal (might want to do a couple specific kinds)
  • Ketchup
  • Mayo
  • Salad
  • Bread
  • Orange juice
  • Juice boxes
  • Fruit snacks
  • Popcorn / snack food

Also, make a penalty for people who use up the last of an item but don't mark it off. It can be something like no TV that day, or skipping a coveted trip to McDonalds or the video store.
