Tip Of The Day: Go Shopping Alone

by Dual Income No Kids on August 7, 2009 · 0 comments

Hi All,

Here is a tip. Sometimes when you go shopping with kids or a spouse, they can try to talk you into buying things the household does not need. For example, I’m sure you’ve been in the grocery store and seen children try to get their parents to buy them candy. Similarly, when my wife Miel and I go shopping, I sometimes try to talk her into buying pot stickers – an expensive high fat food that is hard on our wallets. It’s hard to save money on groceries when you have all that pressure to buy things you otherwise wouldn’t.

Today’s tip: try going shopping alone, remember to bring a list.
