Don’t you hate going to the store and buying whatever you see? More times than not, you spend way more than you should. I am just as guilty as doing it as the next. But, the 15 minutes preparing a list is worth the money you save.
Always plan ahead for meals, especially during the holidays. Utilize the storage in your fridge/freezer so you make less trips, which can reduce the amount of money you spend. Between coupons and making a list, you can reduce your spending up to 25%.
Remember, when making lists to get things you need. If you have to stretch the few bucks you have, buying ice cream may have to take the back burner. Buying meats, milk or fruits/veggies would be best use of your money. While I have no control over what you buy, it is wise to prioritize when you’re budgeting.
Enjoy the rest of your day,
