Grrrr. I get so angry at myself. I went to the grocery last evening to buy milk, bread and some fruit. I came home with 6 bags of stuff!! Do you do this? How is it that I always come home with extras!

I have tried so many times to just make a list and stick to it. However, there are always things you'll pick up either just because, or you forgot you needed it, or you know you will need/want it in a day or so. I catch myself telling the clerk, I only came in here for 3 things...........they always respond, I hear that a lot! You are not along crazynurse!

I have found that if I do not tell myself that I am only sticking to the list, I do come out with more. HOwever, I do tell myself that I am going to only purchase what is on the list. So that is waht I do

Part of it is the way the stores are set up. They entice us. The other thing that happens is that I bet you go when you are tired, or hungry, and your resistance is down. I do the same thing, often.

It happens often to me also, you like either forget that you needed something or that you buy some extra stuff because of impulse. I think it takes iron will to resist to buy alot of stuff you reall dont either want or need to buy.
