Myrtle's Long Lost Sister

Here I am -- Myrtle's Long Lost Sister of Thrift (sorry Gina that you had to BEG to get me to finally post). I hardly buy anything unless it is on sale (groceries included)!! I LOVE bargains and always have. Here is the thrift tip of the day...

When I go grocery shopping I always stick to a set budget. In order to not go over I write down the price of every item that goes into my cart and then add the total to my groceries before I get to the register. This might seem time consuming to some people, but it really isn't. I can't tell you how many times the cashier has accidentally overcharged me or scanned something twice. Not only can you catch cashier mistakes, but you will never go over the amount that you planned on spending that day at the store.
