I find myself wander the stores too much when I'm hungry and bored. This is my number one culprit for overspending at the grocery store! Here is how I shop.
- Never go to a grocery store tired, hungry, or emotional.
- Shop the perimeter. I find myself wander the aisles tempting myself with food I shouldn't eat!
- Know what you're cooking and make a list of things to buy.
- Stick to your list.
- Bring a shopping buddy to keep you motivated.
- Just because it's on sale doesn't mean you need it.
