you should never grocery shop longer than 30 minutes
Have you ever found
yourself shopping in the grocery store and you end up wandering
up and down aisles, even aisles you have been down before,
and don't really know why? Well, next time this happens, you
should go straight to the checkout line! Because for every
minute you spend in the grocery store after the first 30 minutes,
you will spend an extra 50 cents per minute, and most of that
is impulse buys.
Most grocery stores
are laid out so that it will never take you longer than half
an hour to go up and down each and every aisle, unless it
happens to be one of the super sized big box warehouse stores.
Try not to make
grocery shopping an hour long extravaganza. Go with a shopping
list in hand and then time yourself so that you can only spend
20 minutes, or a maximum of 30 minutes, in the grocery store,
including checkout time. This will help you avoid those impulse
buys that add the cost to each grocery store visit.
