Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Maybe you’ve thought that, every time you shop, your expenses always swell from day to day. Is there something wrong with all this?
Actually shopping every month is one of the important activities in connecting. But there are some mistakes that are often made repeatedly when shopping monthly which can disrupt your financial condition.
As a result, expenses can exceed income and this will erode your savings.
So that this does not happen for the umpteenth time. So it’s a good idea to pay attention to three mistakes in monthly spending that make you even more extravagant.
Not making a grocery list
Even though it’s trivial, a grocery list is very useful to avoid buying things you don’t really need. Of course this is part of the monthly shopping budget.
Without a grocery list, it’s possible that your monthly shopping expenses will swell up because you buy things you don’t really need.
Therefore, just take your time to make a grocery note, simple right?
Shop without checking promos
When you shop at a shopping center, that place always has a shopping catalog for a certain period, which includes promotional information. You can also check directly and compare it with prices in other supermarkets.
Before making a shopping list, how about you first check the promotions online so you can get a clear picture of the prices there.
Apart from checking the promos in the catalog, don’t forget to check the credit cards that offer discounts at your destination supermarket.
Just buy a lot
Many products are offered at lower prices if you buy a lot at once. Call it like a promo buy one get one free or buy three get one free. But are you sure you really need similar items in large quantities?
It’s best to know beforehand what items you want to buy. There are times when the items being sold as a package are items that are about to expire or may not sell well in the market.
An offer like this can actually harm you indirectly.
