    Make a grocery list

    Prior to setting foot into a mall, supermarket, or some other store, you should have a clear idea of things to buy. Making a grocery list and sticking to it makes you less likely to indulge in impulse purchases while shopping. This implies there is a less possibility of buying items you will throw away in the end. If you are the kind of individual who simply cannot control your urge for a spontaneous shopping experience, maintaining a master listing of items which you are permitted to purchase within your smart phones or wallet at all times is ideal. You can have fun while shopping, and also refrain from unwanted purchases.
