Thanks for the information.
Thanks so much!
Good tips. I especially like the impulse buying if you are hungry.
Good strategies. Thanks.
I try to stick mostly to the perimeter where I can. Meat, dairy, fresh fruit & veggies.
Good article, to help not impulse shop I go shopping with a list and slick to my list.
moving stuff around, so you must go up n down more isles to find what you want...8~\
Good advice but for someone like me that is GF, it's not hard to avoid. I look hard at the GF products that are much more expensive and a lot smaller in sizes while the calories are higher. An interesting combination. I just wish we had more easy and common recipes to find and use rather than all the commercial products out there.
Great advice! Wish my husband would read it LOL.
Over 50 years ago, I had a marketing class and learned how to create the lures. Today coffee was not on the list I didn't have. Next to the end cap was my favorite seasonal flavor. First I saw the sign for 'buy 2 get coupon for $1.50 on your next trip.' There were 2 package sizes. The small ones were in the cart when I realized the large package was a better buy so I swapped. My husband said It looked like a lot of coffee. Not really, the way I drink coffee. Besides, I would have ordered the same amount online tomorrow. Called it win-win.
(Got sick on too much Halloween candy last year. Avoiding it this year.)
Great article. Since the article was written, on-line and pick-up has come out. That helps me greatly.
Great article, very helpful!
