I like making lists, as evident here, here and here. When I go grocery shopping, I almost always make a list to avoid buying unnecessary things and spending money we don’t have. But for some reason, whenever I go to Target, I seem to deviate from the list.
I can’t help it. I gravitate towards the items with the bright yellow “new low price” card. I have no willpower in that store. I get easily distracted not only by the things on sale but by all the pretty packaging.
This is what happens when I don’t stick to the list.
I buy FOUR packages of cookies. All for future baking/dessert endeavors.
I buy FOUR packages of Ghiradelli chocolate chips also for baking/desserts.
I stock up on canned sauces. They’re A LOT cheaper than the name brand stuff. I often make big batches of marinara and freeze them.
A snack for the football game. Go Warriors!
I didn’t buy this at Target.
The hubby thought this would be funny to do to Hello Kitty.
Not sure my 2-year-old was amused.
Do you use and stick to a list when you go shopping?
