P.L.A.N. To Shop

Posted By Alyssa Francis On August 20, 2008 @ 2:55 pm In Coupon Tips | 6 Comments

Before I go shopping, I always remember to plan:

Pray :: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; Phil 4:6. Read The Shopper’s Serenity Prayer [2].

List :: Always shop with a list! Your list should include both immediate needs for your menu plan and sale items matched with coupons for stockpiling.

Accelerate :: Get in, get out. Studies have shown that the more time shoppers spend in a store, the more money they will spend!

No impulse buys :: Stick to that list!
