The Easiest and Most Effective Money-Saving Tip

Filed under: Uncategorized — moneysavingcookbook @ 11:21 am

Saving yourself a bundle of money, calories and months of regret is simple: EAT!

Eat before you shop, that is. Don’t go food shopping on an empty stomach. Don’t make any other significant purchases while hungry either. Your decision-making capacities drop when your blood sugar is low and you’ll crave every high-fat, high-sugar item you see. It’s a pretty safe bet that a great many bad foods will end up in your trolley, on your lips and eventually, on your hips. You’ll pay for your indulgences with a high food bill and will very likely have to make a second trip to buy food you actually need once the hunger pangs have passed, effectively doubling your costs with just one bad decision.

It can’t be stressed enough: eat first. Simple and highly effective. Try it and tell us if it works for you.

  2. That’s very good advice and one, sadly, I don’t adhere to very well. 🙂

    • I have to struggle with it sometimes too. Just keep trying. It’s still savings even if you only do it now and then.
