 does using a shopping basket as opposed to using a shopping cart, keep you from overspending?

if I'm by myself yes, but if dd's with me I use the cart because I can't carry her and the groceries. I also figured out that walking to the store is a good way to keep from overspending lol, since we don't want to carry a lot back to the apartment. That won't be an option soon though

I have no idea.  I always have a cart because I have to put kids in it.  Now THAT will keep you from overspending!!  No room for items since the cart is full of kids!!  lol

I thought so until I went in the other day (without a list, big mistake) and kept remembering things we needed and the basket got soooooo heavy lol

I always pick a cart.  The only time I use a basket is if I know I am not getting a lot.
