Check It Before Checking Out (Frugal Friday)

The other day when I was strolling through Walmart I saw that they had clearanced a huge amount of toys, probably in anticipation of their Christmas stuff that should be rolling in soon. Since I had no kids with me, I paused. And I placed in my cart several items that I thought the kids might like.
We have two more birthdays to cover before Thanksgiving, so I knew I’d need to be thinking ahead anyway. I continued on my merry way, collecting the things that were actually on my list. When I got to the check-out, I did a double take.
When I have a right mind, I often ask myself this question. And generally speaking, I’m able to put back at least one or two items. I did this time, too.
While the toys were a screaming deal, I didn’t need all the items I originally chose. I kept one item for a school science project and three other items for a birthday. I handed the last item to the checker and told her I had changed my mind.
Check the cart before you check out. It can save you from buying something you don’t need or can’t afford.
