Grocery Shopping Tips

  • Watch out for flashy displays, the ends of the aisles, and sale items
  • Come prepared with a list – you’ll be less likely to impulse buy
  • Shop on a full stomach, or at least not when you’re very hungry (low blood sugar levels lower your inhibitions, like having a few alcoholic beverages, so you may buy foods that are less healthy and potentially end up overeating)
  • Shop around the perimeter of the store – this is where you will find healthy, colorful produce (the longer the food lasts on the shelf, the longer the food will last in your body)
  • Do your research – Grocery stores now have apps that you can download and will save you money with rewards or coupons

Shaw’s has one too:
