Over on MSN’s Health & Fitness site, author Sally Wadyka writes about 10 little known grocery store facts.
If you’re fond of cheap food and food bargains, however, I hope that some of these grocery store tactics come as no surprise to you:
- Kid-friendly food is purposely placed within their reach.
- They cut up food so they can charge more.
- End-of-aisle displays are there to distract you from your mission.
- Bargains arenâ€™t always a bargain.
Whenever you go to buy groceries, be alert to any acts of marketing that the supermarkets are throwing your way. Once you step into their store, you’re in a controlled environment. Go with a grocery list, be strong, and don’t get Jedi-mind tricked no matter how hungry you are!
