When you go grocery shopping do you always

Follow your shopping list. It seems like everytime I make a shopping list, I usually wind up buying stuff that is not on the list. I try to follow it , but there is always that one something calling my name I am going to the market in the morning, I have already looked at the sale circular online and made my list. I am going to try my best to stick to my list. How often do you actually follow your list when you go grocery shopping? I do not want to spend more than $75.00, so I will probably stick to my budget.

It sure is hard to stick to your list, especially if there is something on sale and you can use it. I have to go tomorrow, and I know I will be tempted, because of the sales they are going to have because of the holiday. Hope you have a safe and nice Labor Day.

Before I got married there was only me alone. I have a grocery list which is just very short usually and I would also end up buying stuff not on the list - very bad my husband would say. Now that I am married, I just stick to the list because we have a budget and it's no longer me alone. Sometimes once in a while I would go off the list like getting tow or 3 stuff extra because it's cheap and there's a need for it. Its best to stick to the list and just buy what's needed and then scoot from the store.

Yes, scoot from the store is correct I have to go to the store tomorrow, and I will definitely stick to my list. times are hard, and I can not afford to deviate from my list. I only have to get simple stuff, milk, eggs etc. So, I will be in and out in no time. Have a nice and safe Labor day.

Don't worry your not alone.. Well, I do usually buy something without in my shopping list.. I can't really follow what's on my list especially if I saw new items in the grocery.. Sometimes, some of the things in my list I can't buy it since I change it into another item.. I am trying my best also to follow what's on the list but when I am already at the grocery, I just can't.. It always have an additional items... And sometimes I hate myself because when i arrived at home I just found out that my money is not already enough because of my hard headed of not following what's on my list.. Maybe, I am not really good in budgeting my own money..

even after reasoning with yourself, it is sometimes hard to pass up a good bargain. Actually, it is even worse when my husband goes with me, he is like a child in a candy store. I try to leave out early while he is still sleep, and won't volunteer to go with me.

The only things I write down on my list are the things we are out of or about out of. I am always buying things that are not on my list. I did manage to go into the store the other day and only buy what was on my list.

Good for you, my list mainly consist of things I am running out of, or ingredients that I need to complete a meal. I am hopeful that I will come out of the store with only the things that I need. Sometimes, you see something on sale that is really enticing/
