when shopping always take a list - whether its grocery shopping or clothing or whatever a list helps to eliminate those impulse buys that zap our budgets.
Taking a list keeps you to a scedule as well - keeping you on target of where in the store you need to be. Wondering around aimlessly leads to all kind of purchases that you have no intension of getting therefore spending money that is outside your budget. Make the list according to need not want!
When I go grocery shopping, I am surprised by the kinds of foods I don't buy anymore. Ice cream, chips, soda. I see them in other shopping carts & wonder why people are wasting their nutrition dollars on junk when they could have yogurt, oranges, and lemon water instead. My tastes HAVE changed!
How have you changed your grocery shopping habits?
