Everytime i walk into a grocery stores without a list, I ended up buying the things that I don’t really need. The colorful product on the shelves keep on whispering “Bilhin mo ko!”. The worst scenario is that i forgot to buy the product i actually needed and result to go back to the store again. And sad to say it always happen to me.
Since my goal now is to manage our expenses wisely. I realized, there’s only one thing that I shouldn’t forget whenever I go shopping and that is “My Shopping List”. Using a shopping list is always a smart move whether traditional like using a piece of paper or scratch, or a modern one using a mobile app. Pareho naman sila beneficial, your choice kung san ka mas kumportable.
Here are the reasons why you should bring a list on a regular basis before going to a grocery store.
Save Money. When you plan and list all the things you needed before going to the store. You’ll have an idea how much are you going to spend and if it fits on your budget. Less likely to buy things you don’t needed and focus on your list only.
Save Time. If you have your list, you can get out of the store once you completed the things you need to buy.You don’t have to roam around the whole store wandering what you really need or if you miss anything.
Discipline. It’s really fulfilling when you know you control yourself over impulse buying.It will be considered as an accomplishment cause product marketing strategies now was really hypnotizing. Mapapabili ka talaga.
Sharing to you my very own shopping list.
I put it on the door of our fridge w/ ref magnet so that everytime me or even my husband notice that there are items in the house that soon to be out of stock, susulat lang namin dun. Isa pang use nito is that whoever is available to do shopping, wether me or hubby, pwede kasi nakalista naman na lahat ng dapat bilhin.
