Smart shopping - making my money go further

Boikhutso goes to the grocery shop every day to buy fresh bread.  She walks into the store and picks up a basket as she secretly knows that she will pick up more than just the bread she has come to buy. She knows there will be some yummy looking items on sale near the breads, and then she always takes a stroll up and down the aisles to see what else may tempt her. It's fun! Boikhutso finds that most days she will leave the grocery shop with one to two shopping bags full of groceries and treats. 

Is popping into the shops everyday wise?
Boikhutso is always tempted into buying more than what she needs, and this happens every day, can you imagine what this costs? If we go shopping every day, or often, we are giving temptation a chance to mislead us into buying unplanned items, this is obviously going to cost us more than we planned in our budget each month.  After all, do we really need fresh bread every day, bread stays fresh at least 3-4 days, perhaps this is just an excuse for Boikhutso to go shopping?
