Planning saves you money when shopping for your yard

At least some sun was in the forecast for today when I checked, so I’m hoping to get out in my yard and get some work done.

I’ve discovered a few ways to save some money on gardening and I’ll share them over the next few days.

The first one is — Shop with a plan or list and stick to it.

I find that when I go to a garden center or nursery with a list, I’m more likely to spend what I can afford. If I go without a plan, I’m likely to grab plants on impulse when I don’t really need them or can’t use them in my yard. Knowing that you only need or have room for two of a certain plant will prevent you from spending too much money by getting four.

It’s kind of like going to the grocery store when you’re hungry and don’t have a shopping list. Chances are, you won’t make the best choices you could.
