Grocery Shopping for Success

Grocery Shopping for Success

We all have to shop for groceries – it is inevitable!  Some people enjoy it more than others but anyone can become an accomplished shopper.  Here are some tips to help you be successful in your shopping trips:

          Never shop when you are hungry

          Grocery shop without your kids

          Shop early or very late in the day to avoid crowds

          Shop with a list and don’t buy anything that is not on your list

Shop with cash – you will be more careful with your purchases if you know you have a limited amount of money

Watch for sales & use coupons

Watch for clearance sections and show the lower level shelves for best deals

Plan your meals one week in advance and create a shopping list from that schedule.  This will help you avoid last-minute trips to the store

Remember…the more you enter the store, the more you will purchase.  If you go in for a $1.00 item, you will probably spend at least $5 – $10.00.  Stores spend a lot of money researching how they can get you to buy what you didn’t come to the store to purchase.  Be on guard!
