Use a Tally Counter When Grocery Shopping
Fantastic idea. I tried this once with an old plastic grocery tally counter thing (my mother used one in the 60s) but it kept jamming and I sort of forgot about it. I am going to pick up one of these today. We have been spending way too much on groceries- it...
