Before you go grocery shopping, make a list of what you want to buy and buy nothing else!! We all do it- we go to the store, we see things we want, or forgot to add to our list, and we grab it. And grab that. And keep grabbing things we feel we need or forgot to buy for the house or groceries! It adds up VERY quickly. If I’m shopping and I decide to buy hubby and the boys “splurge” food I have to be careful because I can easily spend an extra $10-20. If you do that every week of the year that is over $1000!! Be very strict about what you buy and stick to your list!
