Grocery List Tear Off Pad

OK...we all know my addiction to lists, right? Well, when I saw this post on Infarrantly Creative I knew that I needed one. She even has a free download for the template so you can completely customize this without too much effort!

Previously I was using a spreadsheet for my grocery list (thanks Beth!) - I may have a slight addiction to spreadsheets too. But I would procrastinate printing the spreadsheet and then it was two pages long, so I would be fumbling through my pages...blah, blah, blah...

So I decided to make this handy grocery list tear off pad and we'll see if it makes things a bit easier.

When I brought my materials to craft group this morning, some of them snickered (you know who you are Michele). And I brought the wrong drill bit which made things difficult. (more snickering) But I kept on going and I'm very happy I did. I have a lovely tear off pad for my grocery list now. (snicker, snicker) I just need to add magnets to the  back and hang on the fridge.
 And I've decided that I deserve something special on my list...
What else should I buy?

I love this idea, but I have a few questions. How long is that paper? it doesn't look like a regular piece of printing paper.

Two shopping lists print off on one sheet, so you cut it in half. That's probably why the proportions look different! Good luck with your project!

how big is the sheet of paper you are printing on. I am trying to make mine fit but it won't on an 8 1/2 x 11. Is that a 12 " sheet? Did you do anything special to tell the computer/printer you were printing on a larger sheet?

It is actually an 8.5x11. The document that you download at Infarrantly Creative is a regular old word document, so I didn't have to do anything to get it to look just perfect!! And I like that. Good luck with your project!
