KEEP IT SIMPLE



TRIM YOUR GROCERY BILLS

Do trips to the grocery store often result in a serious dent in your wallet? Consider these shopping tips from thefrugalshopper.com:

  • Make a grocery list during the week. Take it with you when you shop. Stick to it.

  • Prepare your menu for the week around what you already have and what's on sale.

  • Go to the supermarket early in the morning for a better chance of getting marked-down items.

  • Don't shop for groceries on an empty stomach.

    FINAL WORD

    "The most important skill in staying calm is not to lose sleep over small issues. The second-most-important skill is to be able to view all issues as small issues."
