Need for Grocery List

Hi I am Deepa. Today I am going to introduce you to my grocery list. For me, Shopping before lockdown - go to the supermarket, look at everything I saw on the rack and add it to the shopping cart.

Later, when the lockdown started, My husband, Biju was the only one who went shopping. Then I had to give a list. When that happens, making a list becomes a headache. Every time you will forget some things and sometimes, will buy things again and again without any need.

It wasn't until much later that I realized the need to make a grocery list, so I made one. Now the necessary items are not left behind and are not bought unnecessarily.

Many of you may be following this. For those who don't have a try and leave a comment. Now, Let's see that grocery list.
