50 Supermarket tricks we all fall for
50 Supermarket tricks we all fall for

From Reader’s Digest – things you probably never knew about your grocery store!

It’s no accident that shopping carts are getting bigger.

We doubled their size as a test, and customers bought 19 percent more.

The more people buy, the more they consume.

If you used to buy a six-pack of soda and drink six cans a week but now buy a 12-pack because that’s the current standard size, you’re probably going to start drinking 12 cans a week. Be mindful when buying larger sizes to make sure your habits don’t change as a result.

The average consumer tends to remember the price of only four items:

Milk, bread, bananas, and eggs. Ninety-five percent of shoppers have no idea what all the other items cost and don’t know if they’re getting a good deal when they buy them.

To save money, wear headphones and listen to upbeat music as you shop.

Many stores play music with a rhythm that’s much slower than the average heartbeat, which makes you spend more time in the store—and buy 29 percent more.

If you need a cake, don’t buy it the day you need it.

We’ll have to give you one from the display case, and those cakes have often been sitting out for a while. If you order in advance, we’ll make the cake for you that day or the night before, and it will be a lot fresher.
