The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Pamela:
Throughout the week, I keep a running list of items I need to purchase on shopping day (usually Wednesday). Before I head to the stores, I go through the weekly circulars and see which stores have what I need on sale. I then search through my coupons on-hand and online, matching them up with items on my list.
Having a list helps me stick to just buying what I need, avoiding spending more than I should.
