1. First I have my grocery tab totaled. Then I give the cashier my shopper's card and watch as the total goes down, down, down. Then she swipes my coupons and it goes down even more! It's all still expensive, but psychologically it makes me feel better to see it go down.

3. Dreams of fall clothing that I see in the catalogs coming by mail lately.
