Wasn't there some meme out there that said
“If there’s something you can do, then it makes no sense to worry about it. And if there’s nothing you can do to help the situation, then it makes no sense to worry about it.”
I had to go and find that.
It's a good shortcut.
I use iCloud reminders for my lists. Whatever I put on my computer, ends up on my phone and vice versa.
I have to have a shopping list. It's about money and it's about having on hand what I need to make meals. I invented (hah) a system for myself.
First, I made a long list of everything I normally need to buy.
blah blah blah.
then I put an X by whatever I already have on the list on the phone.
then I go shopping and, as I put stuff in the basket, I X them off until the list looks like this:
I take off the Xs as I use stuff and the list is ready for the next foray.
