Steve’s Five Grocery Shopping Tips

I came from a large family, so I’ve had to grocery shop since Junior high school. I’ve learned over the years, that “food” in our culture is no longer fuel for an engine, sustenance for an organism, but rather, a recreational drug, or social lubricant. If you’re not careful, you can find yourself spending way too much time & money, and not get the best products.

1. Start with the cold, frozen stuff – you’ll get out of the store faster so your stuff doesn’t thaw.

2. Eat before shopping so you don’t buy on your stomach.

3. Go to the store within a half hour of the store closing.

4. Go to a grocery store where you don’t know anyone so you don’t get trapped in a conversation.

5. Don’t trust the front label. “Fat free” isn’t necessarily fat free. They can say “0 grams trans fat’ if the content is .49 grams or less, PER SERVING. When they remove fat, they often add sugar and/ or salt, so it’ll still taste good. Read the “Nutrition Facts” label on the back.

All in all, when you go to the grocery store, it’s “Buyer Beware”!
