- Shopping With An Empty Stomach
- Arriving Unprepared
Entering a supermarket on an empty stomach is a recipe for disaster. Your hunger often dictates what you buy. This is a bad habit that will make you spend much more on junk or foods that you really do not need.
You’re out. Somehow, you ended up with enough free time to do some grocerying. The supermarket is on the way but you don’t have your list with you. It’s unplanned but convenient. Most of the time you will either buy duplicates of what you already have at home or miss out on certain items. Don’t do it. Plan beforehand and always be prepared.
Keep a list on your fridge, and write things down immediately. When you run out of something, don’t leave it to your memory. Jot it down. Once you get the hang of lists, take it up a notch. Prepare your grocery list by aisle. It’ll prevent you from constantly running back and forth in the store.
