If you have a smart phone and a spouse I highly recommend getting a grocery list app and setting it up to share. My husband and I use Grocery IQ. Whenever one of us adds something to the grocery list, the other's list is automatically synced. We also use it to share shopping lists for other stores. We have a hardware store list, a Target list, and an online list. I can't imagine what we would do without this app! Another nice feature is that you can set up a favorites list where you add all of the typical things you need each week. Then when you are out of an item, you can simply go to your favorites list and tell it to add that item to your shopping list. Grocery IQ also has coupons that you can clip.
If you checked out Grocery IQ and aren't in love with it, there are other list apps out there. I have heard favorable things about Grocery Gadget, Grocery List-Buy Me A Pie, Easy Shopping List, and Shopper (though I have never tried any of these).
Good luck and happy shopping!
