One person suggested ringing up each category separately

and paying with cash from each envelope separately…groceries, personal products, pet items, etc. (Gosh I hope you’re never in line before me! :)

Someone suggested using a recipt spreadsheet of some type when they got home. Yet someone else said that was too much trouble.

Here’s a suggestion. Group your category items together on the conveyor belt. Say all the groceries first – then paper products – then personal products. Pay with cash from one envelope. When you get home you can move the cash from envelope to envelope. The receipt will have the products grouped together…just add each category up. If necessary ask the checkout person to ‘move the receipt up’ a bit before starting the next category.

Just an idea…I don’t use any of these ideas! LOL
