don't go grocery shopping when hungry

Not only is this not good for the waistline but it is not good for the budget. Been there and done that. But if you are like me and you're on your way home from work and want to pick up a few things and don't want to go out after you got home- make out list of things you definetly need - milk, eggs etc. when you get into the store just make a beeline to those, get it and go straight to the cashier. don't waste time in other areas of the store. Also get one of those hand baskets instead of a cart it will prevent from getting more than you need.
