Dear Vegan at Heart,
Your first mission is to create a shopping list.
If you're like me, the following has happened: you stare at the fridge wishing you had something and you think, "Oh yeah! That's what I need! When I go to the store, I'll remember to get it." And then when you find yourself at the store on your way to someplace else while you're hungry and the store is about to close, you don't remember it.
A shopping list doesn't have to be a fancy pre-made Shopping List that you buy at the Shopping List Store. Here’s what you do:
Take your timer (cell phone timer or oven timer is fine), set it for 5 minutes, and complete your first mission. It will probably take less than 2 minutes!
I have lists for everything, including shopping. My mom makes the list and I tell her what I want on it. We are pretty good at staying on task.

I live by my lists
Even better, if you've got a smart phone or iPhone, look for one of the free or very low-cost shopping list apps that are out there. I've used both HandyShopper and ToMarket, liked them both.
