I was at the supermarket last Saturday to do some grocery shopping. I had only a few items in mind but I ended up getting more. I usually have a to-buy list kept in my phone but every time, there are items not in the list that get thrown in my grocery cart. Talk about impulsive shopping. Haha.
I knew I had a budget to stick to but as what has been the case in the past, the impulsive shopper in me won again. I justified it by telling myself that all I bought were useful items and not just unnecessary stuff. They would serve their purpose sooner or later. But don’t get me wrong. I still put a limit to my grocery shopping. If I have a budget of P2,000, for instance, I only overspend by 25% to 30%. Anything beyond that is unacceptable.
Anyway, I was impressed by how complete the supermarket at SM Bacoor was. They even have a section for clothes. During my visit last Saturday, I spotted nice tops, children’s clothes and even patagonia baggies for men. Haha. I ended up buying two tops at P199.75 each for use at work. They were so cheap I couldn’t believe my eyes!
Do you also overspend when you go grocery shopping? Tell me about it!
