5 Easy Ways To Save Money On Groceries [FREE PRINTABLE]

Grocery stores have little discrete ways of manipulating you to spend more money but today I’m going to share them with you. Once you know them you are able to be aware and not fall into their traps to spend unnecessary money!

 

Grocery stores get you to spend more money by the music they play

Did you know that there is two ways grocery stores use music to manipulate you into spending more money? 

The first way grocery stores manipulate you through their music is by playing songs with a slower beat. 

This will subconsciously cause you to walk slower and see more products which often leads to impulse purchases.

The second way grocery stores manipulate you through their music is by playing “throwback” or really fun songs that you enjoy singing along to. 

There is just something about those early 2000’s throwback songs that you can’t help but sing along to, this instantly puts you in a good mood, which also leads to impulse purchases. 

The smells of fresh baked bread

Just like the ice cream shop and the smell is fresh made waffle cones to get you to up-sell your order, grocery stores use the smells of fresh baked bread to get you to add a fresh loaf to your cart.

Grocery stores move their items to get you to buy more

Grocery stores and warehouse stores like Costco are famous for moving around their items so that you can’t just run in and run out with one item. 

Stores will move around their items so that you have to walk through the store, up and down items to find the item you are looking for, and hopefully pickup some impulse buys along the way!

Buy it before it's gone

Grocery stores have started manipulating their shoppers by placing limits on their items.

What this does is gives you a scarcity mindset. 

You probably only needed one of this item but now that you see a limit on it, that makes you think that it may not be there the next time you need it so you buy the limit that they offer. 

Avoid eye level items

When grocery shopping, avoid eye-level items, these items often have the highest markup, so look up or down for the best deal!
