Make the Most of Your Shopping Trip
Going to the grocery is probably not your favorite activity. Many people dread this chore. But here are some tricks that can help you make the most of your shopping trip.
Most important, never go without a list. Never. Your list can be jotted on the back of an envelope or kept on your phone, but you should always have a list. If you prefer the tech option, there are lots of shopping list apps out there. What is easy and intuitive to one person is as complicated as a moon launch to someone else, so find the one that works best for you.
There are two reasons you want to shop with a list. First, this is the best way to make sure you don’t forget anything. Few things are more frustrating than getting home from a grocery trip and realizing that you forgot a key ingredient for tonight’s dinner. Second, having a list will help you spend less time in the store. Studies show that the longer you’re in a store the more money you’ll spend.

“…Bluebirds sing for nothing—and the shade comes free with a tree…” – Troy Jones & Shane Decker
I like money. I used to like working with it in my job. I liked paying bills and working out the best way to do it so that we’d have as much money as we had month—well, most of the time. Having more of it would be nice, I guess, but since we don’t really need more, that doesn’t really matter. I like what money can do, but not what it often does do.
Even though I like it, I don’t want it to become important. At least, I don’t want it to become more important than things that are free. When I wrote that, I thought it was sort of profound. I also thought some people reading it would just think it was goofy. And I’m good with that.
But this afternoon on Facebook, I saw pictures of some of our kids and grandkids on different beaches. The sky and the waters of Lake Michigan and the Atlantic Ocean were brilliant blue behind them. The sand was sparkling white. Another of the kids told me about a bicycle ride down the Virginia Creeper Trail. Seventeen miles almost all down-hill. I’m not sure I’ll ever make the ride, but it’s been fun thinking about it, visualizing our son and daughter-in-law riding it, remembering the conversation.
