More About 6 Things About Grocery Store Aisles That Will Save You Money

Do you fall into a routine in your weekly, or more shopping trips?

Using coupons can save you money but so can knowing these 6 Shopping Aisle Basics:

First think about the LAYOUT of stores. Processed and ready-to-eat foods tend to be located in the inner aisles. because they are prepackaged, and thus able to stay on the shelves for months at a time while the majority of fresh food options like fruits and vegetables, dairy products, meat, and seafood are located on the perimeter.

So start with the outer aisles - as fresh is better. Also look at fruits and vegetables that are priced to go before they go bad. (Just eat them soon or freeze the right away!)

With that in mind here are the 6 money saving Tips:

1. Make a list and then categorize your shopping list by aisle. Only go down the ones you need items from.

2. Wear headphones.
Store music wants you to walk slowly which means that you’re more apt to make unplanned purchases. By wearing your headphones with upbeat music you’ll get through the aisles faster.

3. Look high and low.
Most expensive grocery items are placed at eye level.
Therefore, remember to look closely at the higher and lower shelves for better deals.

4. Avoid the empty calorie aisle.
Likely this aisle is not on your list to begin with but
grocery stores put empty calorie foods like soda, potato chips and candy in an aisle together because they go together, encouraging you to purchase more. So, not only are they high in cost they are high in calories.

5. Check out the bulk aisle.
The trick here is to make sure none of it goes to waste, so be sure to buy only how much you need. You can calculate price per ounce on your phone to double check the savings. A bonus is that the less packaging there is the better it is for our environment.

6. Don’t be fooled by end-caps.
Not all of them are specials.
In fact, the higher cost of the end-cap space means someone has to pay for that and that someone is you. (End-caps are often a way to combat your #1 and #4 strategies above.)

Enjoy your trip to the store but feel good about it when you get home with money left over too!
