Digital Download | Household Wants Indicator | Victorian Grocery List

This printable fridge poster was inspired by a brilliant vintage planner/wall sign called a Household Wants Indicator. These were around earlier throughout Europe and the U.S. but became extremely popular in the 1930s. It’s a chart that hangs in the kitchen, and it has a list of all the main groceries you buy on a regular basis. In the antique version, there were little flags next to each item, and when it ran out, people would flip the flag. That makes it really easy to see what needs restocking. I love this idea but wanted one with the items I actually use on it, so I designed a blank version that can be printed out and hung on the fridge. You can fill it in by hand, or add text digitally (scroll down to the ✎ for details about how).

You can use this time-saver in two ways:
1. Fill the chart with items you buy regularly. Print the chart and hang it on the fridge. Use tiny magnets to mark the items that need to be restocked as they are used up. Whenever you’re about to go shopping, snap a photo of the list, and you’ll know exactly what to buy at the store, without having to write a list each week. Remember to clear the markers every time you restock so the chart stays updated.

2. The same as above, except that you can mark out-of-stock items with a pen. Print a new copy each week, and bring it with you to the store to serve as a physical shopping list.

? What You Get
2 JPG images, 8.5″ x 11″, 300 PPI each. (That’s high-resolution).
One with an antique paper background, and a low-ink white version.

This listing is for ONE DIGITAL image that will be available for instant download upon receipt of payment. You’ll get the full color and low ink versions, ready to be printed and hung on the fridge to streamline your kitchen inventory and shopping routine.

This digital kitchen poster was made using Adobe Photoshop. I did use some vintage paper and edited antique label ephemera to decorate the chart.
