You need a few things from the grocery store. So, you write your S.O. a list. It’s not a major list. But it’s pretty essential. Then he comes home (after something like three hours at the grocery store). He’s sweaty, he’s exhausted and he’s acting like he just worked a full 12-hour shift in the coal mines. Oh, and he didn’t bring you back anything you needed. Take a tip from Era Londhe and check out just how detailed she got when she wrote out a shopping list for her hubs.
Come on. You know what happens when you send your guy to the store to buy something as seemingly simple as a potato. You know that you want one of those big baking potatoes. But your significant other has no clue. He comes home with a bag of pretty purple mini potatoes. Umm, no.
Hey, we’re not saying guys aren’t exactly with it when it comes to grocery shopping. But they’re not mind-readers. Instead of relying on her husband to guess, Londhe made an incredibly detailed list. She even included pictures that detailed the proper size and what he shouldn’t get. And when it came to the potatoes that she needed, Londhe even illustrated which size was the right one. Genius! Really!
