Panel one shows Jazz and Magenta with Magenta looking down and says, "70 is the new 50." To which Jazz says, "Is that a new age thing like 40 is the new 30?" Next panel shows Magenta and Jazz and Magenta is holding a receipt and says, "No. That's the new minimum in dollars a trip to the store costs."

This is why I hate going to the store. A simple trip for milk can easily turn into an expensive proposition. One thing that has helped lately to curb this costly trend is shopping for a list.

It never fails. I always forget something from the store which means another trip is forthcoming fairly soon. With a list, I buy what I need and nothing more. The best part is not forgetting something important. So far I spend less when shopping for a list and hopefully those more expensive trips will become a thing of the past.
