Make a list and only buy what is on the list
This will stop you from buying unncessary items that you don't need.

Pay in cash and take the cash with you
If you've literally only got the money that is in your wallet, you are not going to overspend. This helps you stick to your budget and become more aware of your spending.

Compare prices and shop around so that you don't pay over the odds for items
If you get the mail box flyers, do some preparatory work identifying where the bargains. Sometimes going to a couple of different shops can result in signficant savings.

Buy seasonally where you can
By buying fruit and vegetables that are in season, you will save money as prices for seasonal produce is typically cheaper than by buying items that have had to be imported.

Buy in bulk
Whilst your purse won't immediately thank you for the expenditure for buying in bulk, over time you can save a lot of money doing this. The premise is that you buy an item that you use regularly when it is on offer so that you never pay full price for the item.

Going between shops to get a 'bargain' is negated by time, effort, on your part, & petrol, general wear & tear on your vehicle.

It's cheaper to buy ALL at the one complex.
