Who’s afraid of an empty cupboard?

An excerpt from the book – Money Tips from the Budget Bitch’


Don’t buy things “just in case”

I know so many people who do this. They buy extra food, extra soap, extra detergent, and extra pantyhose. The list is endless and they always tell me that they “bought it just in case”.

So, I ask – Just in case what? Is there going to be another world war that we haven’t heard about? Is rationing about to be re-introduced? Are all the supermarkets going to close down? Or is it just in case we have an empty cupboard that we don’t know what to put in it?

Look in your cupboard… does “just in case” mean that you have almost a case full of that item? 


Do have some emergency supplies of the essentials.

Make sure that ‘emergency’ doesn’t mean ‘over-abundance’.
