kmart weekly ad omaha I tried sneaking it into spaghetti sauce, casseroles, meat balls, you name it. Before they'd take a bite, someone in the family would always ask (with their nose crinkled up funny), "Is it turkey, Mom?" Now please understand -- my family likes ground turkey. In moderation. But too much of a good thing is ... well, too much of a good thing.
Shop with cash. This is a surprisingly effective means of staying on budget. Somehow writing a check seems less "concrete" than paying cash, making it easier to spend more than intended.
Keep a running total of how much you're spending at the store. If you find that you're about to spend more than you had budgeted for that trip, put items back and re-shop for better bargains.
Hold a price diary. Record all often bought products (food, toiletries, paper products and services, etc.) in a small notebook little enough to slip into your wallet or pocket whenever you get shopping. When you are browsing through keep ads or performing your true buying, write down (in pen!) the best price you see for every product shown in your Price Diary (change the prices whenever you see decrease prices than you've already prepared in the notebook). This way you'll know for sure if a purchase price is minimal enough to make it worth stocking up.
