How can I save time, money, wear on my shopping trips?

Frugal shopping trips

Planning your various shopping trips will save you wear, tear, money (gas), and time. Combine two or three short trips in one. I keep a list of things I buy at different stores: a trip to the bank is followed by a trip to the discount store followed by a trip to grocery store...all within 2-3 mile-radius of my home. Three or four days later I head in a different direction for a gift shop, pet store (I have 7 cats!), and craft-or-book store. At the most, I make only 2 shopping trips a week, sometimes only once every two weeks. Planning ahead enables this hidden savings!
