Before I started using stocktake sheets, I would go to the supermarket and honestly feel like kicking myself for buying stuff I didn’t need. I’d come home and put another 3 tins of tomatoes beside the 15 tins I already had, and get so frustrated for spending money I needed for other things.

Now I just do a stocktake once a month and only buy what we need. Once the stocktake is done then I can easily plan my meals around what I have in the cupboard and there’s far less waste.

    That is the worst stocktaking sheet I have ever seen. I thought it would have some basis foods pre entered in order to save food. It’s basically a blank page!

      Hi Ronan, it’s deliberately designed like that so you can fill in your own stuff. Everybody’s cupboards are different. But we’ll certainly pass on your suggestion to add some basics to the sheet. It’s great to get feedback.
