Surprisingly.... Tesco very rarely change the location of their stock. Fruit and veg against the entrance, freezers along the side wall, and bread cakes and other yummy stuff right in the far corner, with fresh cream stuff in a cooler against the back wall. Beers and wines also along the back wall close to the tills so any would be pilferer would have to sprint through the shop, past the tills and try to avoid the the security guard who is built like a substantially constructed lavatory!

I've got a month before OutofMilk pulls the plug .....
Hang on, is this a shopping list or a 3 minute nuclear warning system you are setting up?

You sound so organized. I set multiple alarms daily, and only occasionally use Listonic...

Even better it works on all your devices so you can write your shopping list on your computer or tablet and read it on your phone in the supermarket

And it is free (of course)
I use webmail (btmail) for lists, reminders, pasted links whatever ... save to Drafts, can be read anywhere.
