a Shopping Price Notebook
Do you have problems
remembering prices when planning out your monthly budget?
If you do, try starting a price notebook to keep your most
frequently used prices on hand when budgeting for the month.
What sorts of things
could go in your notebook? Think about the things you often
go to the grocery store for each week, staples such as bread
You can also expand
this to include such things as admission prices to movies
or drop in swimming, the price of the ballet shoes you suspect
your daughter will grow out of in a few months, and even price
of your tune ups or oil changes.
As you become more
aware, you can also begin recording the price variations.
This is especially good when you shop at multiple stores,
but have a hard time remembering when a good deal really is
a good deal, and if the price is cheaper elsewhere.
You can also transfer
your most frequently used prices into a smaller mini notebook
that easily fits in your pocket or purse, which is great when
you are out shopping and run into something you think might
be a really great deal.
