Pssst. We have a grocery shopping hack for you. Let’s talk about meal planning.
A little bit of prep work today means less decision fatigue tomorrow. Decision fatigue is when you browse Netflix for an hour instead of actually watching something. If you’ve ever been to a store like Sam’s Club, you know it’s an incredibly large selection that can keep you busy for a long time. But if you shopper already know what you’re looking for, you’ll spend less time browsing or buying things you don’t need.
Here are three simple meal planning tips that can help you make fewer decisions in life – which means you’ll be less exhausted every day.
Tip 1: Plan your meals for the week and write down every ingredient you need.
Tip 2: Take the time to prepare for your shopping trip, so you don’t have to worry about it later.
Tip 3: Shopping once a month instead of every week is the key of this shopping hack.
However, despite your best efforts, there are times when the only decision you want to make is where to eat. Good news! With a Sam’s Club Mastercard, you can get 3% cash back** when you order at restaurants.
Even when your meal plans get stuck, the Sam’s Club Mastercard can help you stay on track with saving your time, money and sanity. Visit samclub.com/credit to learn more.
** Sam’s Club® Mastercard® cardholders earn Cash Back Rewards on qualifying net purchases (minus credits, profits, taxes and adjustments) made with their Sam’s Club® Mastercard® account. The percentage of the reward depends on the type of purchase made. Cashback rewards are not available for the following purchases or transactions at Sam’s Club or SamsClub.com: cash advances, tobacco and smoking related products (including e-cigarettes), purchases by prescription, refill or purchase of a prepaid card, gift card (including third party gift cards), or any equivalent. You can earn up to a $5,000 Cash Back bonus in a calendar year. Eligible purchases across multiple Card Accounts for the same Sam’s Club member, including business and personal accounts, will be aggregated to determine the maximum $5,000 Cash Back per year. Cashback Rewards are issued starting February of each year for Cashbacks earned in the previous calendar year. Cashback rewards will be forfeited if a Sam’s Club® Mastercard® account is not in good standing (i.e. past due) or if a Sam’s Club Membership terminates or lapses. Cashback rewards are automatically deposited into your Sam’s Club membership and can only be redeemed at a Sam’s Club location or at SamsClub.com. See “How to earn cashback with your Sam’s Club® Mastercard® card“Reward program for details.
