Groceries

I get tired of constantly re-entering different items into my RTM list "shopping," so one day I sat down and made a list that included all of the items that I commonly buy. Then, I tagged each one with the aisle number in my local grocery store and grouped the list alphabetically, so it is automatically sorted by aisle:

For example: (Aisle # - Item)
1 - Bananas
1 - Potatoes
4 - Salmon
6 - Butter
6 - Cream Cheese
9 - Baguette

Then, I mark everything as "complete" and when it comes time to make my shopping list, I make the items that I need to buy that trip as incomplete. This way, I don't have to re-enter everything, and also I can see all the items I usually buy when I'm looking through the completed list of items, so I can catch myself if I miss something.

The aisle sorting works really well too, because everything I need is already pre-sorted so I don't have to scroll through the list to make sure that I got all the veggies, or etc!

I use a similar method, although I simply make my grocery items never due and each item/"task" is part of a large and ever-building list called "Provisions". I tag the items that I need to purchase with a tag called "--need" as I go through the week. By naming the tag "--need" I've ensured that the "--need" tag is the first one to appear on my list of tags because "--" comes before any numbers or letters in RTM. As I pick up items up at the store I can simply un-check the "--need" tag on a group of items using the "edit" feature and then "edit tags" from within the items that are tagged "--need". This works super-easily from my phone.
