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!
