Tally Your Grocery Bill on Your Cell Phone

I live within a budget and a certain amount is allocated to food for the week.

I used to push my trolley around the supermarket with my calculator but so MANY times I would press the wrong button and delete the whole lot and have to start again :(


Well, there's a calculator function on my old mobile phone and once I have pressed in the amount of each item it stays plugged into it-even if I hit a wrong button I can just delete it and plug in the correct amount - without wiping out the whole total.

Why did I not think of this sooner? It has made my life and my shopping trips a whole bunch easier that's for sure!

To stay on budget at the grocery store, I use my calculator feature on my cell phone. Then I am not surprised at the register.
