In the past I’ve always stopped at the grocery store several times a week. That dash in to buy dinner fixings usually wielded a few snacks, some soda, and a yummy treat. Besides the huge monthly grocery bill, I couldn’t lose weight and reduce my medical bills. After reading your book The Automatic Millionaire, I realized my latte factor filled a shopping cart. Now I organize myself, make a list, and shop at Costco for meats, fish, chicken, and other staples to last a month. Those few times I need to hit a market for fresh milk or veggies I do not allow myself to walk down any aisles or to push a cart. I only buy what I can carry in my hands. I’m saving enough that my husband and I opened Treasury Direct Accounts and are now automatically buying $200 a month worth of Series I savings bonds. I’ve lost 5 lbs. too!
