Best Shopping Practices That Help You Not To Overspend

Thursday, October 29, 2009 | comments

A good shopping practice is to look at the prices and comparing them to their sizes so as to get the best bargain. Pick only the item that have the best price for its size and carry on to the next item in your shopping list.

Buying small items that may appear cheap, in the long run add up to be very expensive. Thus, carrying cash that is just enough to purchase what you need and leaving your credit cards at home will help you stick to your budget.

Every time you go shopping take with you a functioning pocket calculator and in case you forget use the one on your cell phone. This will help you calculate and know which sizes compared to their prices are the best bargains.

When shopping, avoid the top shelves since the expensive items are placed at you eye level; instead when you get to the stand you want, start with the bottom shelf. This is where the best per unit deals are placed.

At all cost avoid sales promotions even if the deal is too good, unless the item is in your shopping list. This is because you may buy something that may end up in your kitchen cardboard for three months without being used.

Every financial planner will insist that you have a budget but it is also absolutely important to strictly stick to it that is if you want to avoid overspending. No matter how exciting an offer is, do not spend a penny more than it is stipulated in your list of items.
