  • I do this all the time with groceries. I go in for maybe 3-6 items and come out with $100 worth. There will be sales of things that I can use, mainly, or new items that I decide that I want to try. When I shop after work is the worst. I am tired and hungry and thirsty and that is when I'll pick up snack items mainly and be sorry when I get home and have had a rest.

  • Yeah! Even when I have gift cards, I go over & have to pay some money out of pocket. When I shop online, I am much more careful...I usually just buy one or two things & I am more prone to price-comparison and finding the best deal I can.
