It’s important to plan your shopping trip ahead of time. If you can take one shopping trip per month, it saves on your living expenses because you’re buying less, and it saves on your gasoline expenses. The majority of people are buying a few extra items when they go to the store. Taking fewer trips to the supermarket means spending less money. Planning ahead helps you save money.
Keep a list on the refrigerator where members of your family can write down the things they need. Then on a set day, go through your list thoroughly and make sure you have all the necessities that are needed until you need to go again. You also need to plan your route to the stores, so you can save gas (and time).
You can alleviate the cost of gas altogether by choosing to purchase your necessities online. This can be more convenient, and many stores are giving special discounts and coupons to online purchasers.
