Use Shopping Lists!
Plan, plan, plan! Before you spend anything, plan out your purchases - this also goes for your grocery shopping.
Making a shopping list before you visit the supermarket always proves cheaper than not making one - think ahead, plan your week's menu, check what ingredients you already have in the fridge, cupboards and freezer and buy only what you will need.
Do not be tempted by anything that's not on your list!
Keep your list handy all through the week so that when you run out of cleaning stuff, kitchen roll or whatever, you can note it down straight away. No more walking around the supermarket picking up things you think you may have run out of only to get home and find you have 3 bottles of toilet cleaner hiding behind the toilet bowl!
