Watch for the “funnel.”
Watch out for the displays purposely set in the middle of aisle containing all the seasonal items you usually wouldn’t consider buying. Stick with the Shopping list
Taking your kids or spouse can add up to 40% onto your bill! Not only are you throwing the kids favorite snacks into the cart, you now have company to slow you down and who has time to waste at the grocery store these days!
Avoid Middle aisles when possible.
Many people have heard that everything you need is on the outer edge of a grocery store. Sticking to the outer edge you will find your produce, meat, and dairy. The middle aisles are usually full of the pricey packaged snack foods.
Watch out for the inviting piled up displays.
A beautiful display of merchandise draws attention from the eye, but can you resist picking up the items? The store hopes you will pick up the items since research has shown that touching the merchandise increases the likelihood you will purchase the item.
Steer clear of endcaps.
At the end of each aisle are what we call “endcaps” or display spaces where manufacturers pay extra to have the items featured. Once again sticking to a list will help you avoid lingering to these displays making it less likely that you will purchase these unnecessary items.
