Evernote is my chosen digital tool for managing my grocery list. It’s one of my “starred” notes so it’s as easy to access as possible.
Any time I notice I’ve run out of something or I need something, I stop what I’m doing and add it into my Evernote list. If I “do it later”, I never do – I always forget.

Both lists are in the same note – the primary on top, and the reference sheet below:
