Go to the grocery alone

This is especially true when you already have kids who can already sneak in a toy or a bag of chips in your shopping cart when you're not looking. Not to mention plead with you to buy a certain item that they've seen in TV ads but which you know you absolutely do not need. You can also go around the grocery faster if you are alone.

Read the News Online!

Instead of buying newspapers -- which I have no time to read anyway and which adds to my already growing pile of clutter -- I have taken to reading the latest news online.

There are several sites. To name a few...
International: CNN, BBC, etc.
Philippine based: Inquirer, Philippine Star, Manila Bulletin, etc.

If you know of any others, please feel free to leave a message and I will add them to the list.

Don't forget the grocery list....

List down everything you need to buy on a list....and stick to it! Simple enough, right?

However, I find that the hard part IS sticking to the list because there's always something new or different that catches my eye. So it does take discipline to just stick to the list.

The best way to do this is to shop in the same grocery, one you're very familiar in, so you just zero in on the aisles that contain the things you want to buy, minimizing temptations.
