We typically suggest people manage these in the Errands context as an action tied to the "Miscellaneous" project (which we suggest changing to the name "---" instead.) Simply create an action for common stores you visit and use the note field to capture what you need, and delete the notes when you buy it. Or, you may find you just list them as individual action items on the Errands list, not tied to a store or in the notes field.

If it's a quick errand that I'm about to do, like go pick up some groceries, I often just grab a quick index card from my stack on my desk and write a list out. Easy.

No right or wrong way really from a GTD perspective, except trying to keep it in your head!
