Are you trying to...

MAKE A GOOD PUZZLE?

This answer can be obtained by indexing into each item by its' price, ignoring items which are crossed off and taking letters which are BOGOF twice.

I'll provide an example of this, using the "dairy" section of the shopping list.

The first item is yogurt, for \$3.23. This means that we should take the third letter in YOGURT , G.

The second item is a buy-one-get-one-free pack of mozzarella cheese for \$2.81. This means that we should take the second letter in MOZZARELLA CHEESE, O, twice (it's BOGOF, who wouldn't take two?)

The third item is cheddar cheese, for \$4.51. This means that we should take the fourth letter in CHEDDAR CHEESE, d.

Doing this for the entire shopping list gives the final answer, MAKE A GOOD PUZZLE.
