You Can Drop These 4 Costly Grocery Shopping Habits
The largest spending bucket in India belongs to groceries. According to our research, Indians spent Rs. 21,491 on this category in 2017-18, or 28% of total spending. To save money on a regular basis, some may try to be disciplined by sticking to a shopping list, making fewer trips or clipping coupons. For those who are particularly budget-minded, we've laid out 4 bad habits to drop if you truly want the most value out of shopping for your everyday necessities. Don't Go Grocery Shopping When You're Hungry Hunger is one of the most basic and intense feelings people can have, and such a sensation can easily throw you off your budget at the supermarket. Even when armed with a shopping list, hungry people can be prone to buying unnecessary items just because they want food so much more in the moment. To prevent this from happening, try going grocery shopping when you're relatively full. For example, grocery shopping after dinner can be a great way to take a stroll to and digest while preparing for the week ahead. Don't Be Loyal to Brands In the early 20th century, the key to success in business was making good products because reliable, high-quality production itself was difficult. Since the 1950s, however, consumer packaged goods companies like P&G have been building their global businesses by inundating consumers with advertising. Over time, consumers came to trust these brands to represent good quality, and they were willing to pay for the convenience of simplifying their shopping process by sticking with well-known products. However, blind brand loyalty isn't the best value shopping strategy in the modern era. First, some companies may charge higher prices for features that aren't actually necessary, like adding a fifth blade to your already sufficient razors. Second, production quality of alternative options has improved, and many of the generic brands sold by supermarkets are just as good as those sold by brand names. One can save significant money by forgoing flashy branded goods across many categories. Stop Paying With Cash Finally, unless you shop for groceries at cash-only marketplaces, always use a credit card when shopping for groceries. As most businesses do, supermarkets charge the same price whether you pay with a card or cash, and there are a number of credit cards in India that provide high rewards specifically on grocery spending. How much one can earn using a credit card depends on one's spending profile, but annual rewards could easily amount to thousands of rupees every year, which is essentially free money if you use your card responsibly. Always Check Your Receipt Most people have a tendency to just stuff the receipt into their bag or pocket after paying for their groceries. Or, they don't even take the receipt from the cashier. This is a bad habit that can actually lose you money over time. First, cashiers can mistakenly scan items twice, charging people for items they are not taking home. Second, sometimes cashiers fail to credit you with a sale or promotion, causing you to miss the discounts to which you're entitled. Therefore, it's advisable to at least glance over your receipt to make sure you paid the correct amount. This article originally appeared on ValueChampion’s blog

How To Make Halayang Ube, A Sweet Purple Yam Dessert from the Philippines
I lived in the same house for most of my childhood in North Jersey, as did a majority of the neighbors on my block. We played together, walked to school together, attended each other's baptisms and birthdays and Independence Day barbecues, and pretty much grew together like family. My Cuban neighbors taught me how to dance merengue. On Sundays, my Syrian neighbors often took us with them to their Assyrian Orthodox church. And my Korean neighbors introduced us to Lunar New Year, decorating their front step every February. My Filipino neighbors, however, were the ones who always had the best parties. The adults would be dancing in the back yard and singing hours of karaoke, while the kids all crowded around the living room couch while we took turns playing Sonic The Hedgehog. When it was time to eat, there would be giant trays of lumpia, pancit canton, and on the most special occasions, lechon - a whole roasted pig. All of the food would be seriously amazing, but my favorite was the halayang ube, a sweet and sticky cake made with sweetened condensed milk and the pulp of ube, a type of purple yam. Fast-forward to July 4th,1999, my last day living in New Jersey. We had a huge neighborhood party complete with fireworks and food and all of the kids on the block playing games together. When it was time for everyone to say goodbye, one of the things that Maggie, the mother of the Filipino family, did was give my mother a small package of purple yam ube powder and the halayang ube recipe because she knew it was my favorite. To this day, I really, really miss Maggie, her family, and the years we spent together, so when I am able to make halayang ube, I can't help but feel incredibly sentimental. To make this recipe, which calls for actual ube yams, you may have to go to a Filipino market or a grocery store that offers a large amount of Asian products. Contrary to what many believe, taro root and ube are not actually the same, so make sure that if you're buying frozen or powdered product to substitute, you're still buying the right one. Also, the picture has the halayang ube piled into small jars, but most people simply spread the halayang on a baking dish or plate. It may look a little messy, but it tastes great! ------------------------------------------------------------------ Halayang Ube (or Ube Halaya) 1 1/2 cups grated cooked purple yam 1 cup evaporated milk or (traditionally) coconut milk 1 14oz can condensed milk a pinch of salt 1 tablespoon butter/margarine plus extra for smoothing the cooked yam 1. Wash the purple yam thoroughly, and peel and slice it into big chunks. Boil until tender. 2. In a deep pot or saucepan, combine all the ingredients except the butter or margarine. Stir to combine well and on medium high heat, cook until the mixture thickens. You have to keep stirring while cooking to avoid lumps. It will get harder to stir as it cooks. 3. Halfway through the cooking, add a tablespoon of butter. Mix well and continue cooking until it starts to pull away from the sides of the pan/pot and when you get some, it doesn’t fall off the spoon. 4. Transfer the sweetened purple yam into well-buttered dish/dishes. Add a pat of butter on top of the mixture and using the back of a spoon, level and smooth the purple yam.
Filipino artist Eisen Bernardo combines magazine covers with classic art
Eisen Bernardo unites classical and modern in his latest project "Mag + Art", combining contemporary magazine covers with classic portraits by artists like Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, and John Singer Sargent. (It's sort of strange how well some of these blend in with one another!) I'm not quite sure of the statement the artist is trying to make. Are we likening Hollywood celebrities to the muses of some of the most esteemed fine artists? Or was this just to point out coincidences? Either way, these images are extremely amusing to look at! --------------------------------------------------------------- Photo 1: Natalie Portman, W Magazine May 2005 + "Portrait of Frances Sherborne Ridley Watts" by John Singer Sargent Photo 2: Prince, Billboard Magazine January 2013 + "Portrait of Theodore Roosevelt by John Singer Sargent" Photo 3: Kirsten Dunst, Esquire Russia February 2012 + "Good Companions" by Vittorio Reggianini Photo 4: Robert Pattinson, Vanity Fair Italy March 2010 + "The Skater (portrait of William Grant)" by Gilbert Stuart Photo 5: Gwen Stefani, InStyle Magazine April 2010 + "The Letter" by Auguste Toulmouche Photo 6: Katherine Heigl, Harper's Bazaar Ukraine August 2010 + "Rita Granadina" by George Owen Wynne Apperley Photo 7: Prince William, Vanity Fair Spain April 2011 + "Portrait of Monsieur M," William-Adolphe Bouguereau Photo 8: Gwen Stefani, InStyle Magazine November 2011 + "Dolce Far Niente" by John William Godward Photo 9: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Esquire Malaysia + "Frieda y Diego Rivera" by Frida Kahlo Photo 10: Charlize Theron, W Magazine February 2012 + "Poker Night (from A Streetcar Named Desire)" by Thomas Hart Benton
