Shake up your shopping!

“Sigh! Another week  – another weekly food shop!”
“Food shopping – what a drag”

Is this how you feel?

It’s how I was feeling last week when I approached the supermarket.

So I tried something a little bit different instead. I challenge you to do the same too!

Try starting at the far side of the supermarket and working your way back around to the fruit and veg isle. I tried this today and observed the following benefits:

1) Working against the traffic meant that I did not get caught waiting behind people. – other customers could see me coming and so moved out of my way.

2) My fruit, veg and bread did not get squashed.

3) I noticed new products that I do not normally see.

4) I took more notice of my shopping list as it did not feel as though I could do this shop on auto pilot -therefore I did not put things in my trolley just because I normally do, only if I needed them!

5) I ended up near to the less busy tills

6) I ended up nearer to the exit doors.

7) It made my shop a little less boring!

I know not all supermarkets are laid out the same, so I’d be interested to know if you try this what your findings are and which Supermarket you used.

*HAPPY SHOPPING!*

Oh, and one more little tip – I also found out (having no suitable change in my purse and just a Euro in my car) that a 1 Euro coin will fit in the trolley at my local supermarket. It’s now going to be kept in the car for the weekly shop!
