grocery list with cost estimate

tricia.mcknight says:
I created a list called "staples" and listed everything I normally buy. I prefixed each task with a code for the section "p-" for produce, "a-" for aisles, ect and in the time estimate I put $1 = 1 day. When I go to make my grocery list, I select all the staples I need, and choose duplicate. Without clicking anywhere (so that all the duplicated tasks stay selected) I move the duplicated tasks to my list named "groceries". The result is a nicely sorted list by section and the total list has a time estimate equal to how much it will cost. The "staples" list is untouched and ready to use again next time.

Nice system, just selecting, duplicating and moving.
And then get a sorted grocery list with a cost estimate at the same time - sweet!
Non-sorted grocery lists should be forbidden ;-)
