After work I went to the grocery store to buy some salad greens. I really, really wanted a salad for dinner but I didn’t have any salad at home.
I didn’t want to go to my normal Kroger because I knew it would be packed since it just opened a brand new store. Instead I stopped at a different location on my way home.
Unfortunately this store was full of traps!
When you walk in you are force to walk through the bakery section of the store. So no matter what you came in for you are forced to walk past the donuts, cakes, cookies, etc. For a sugar lover like me it’s so tempting.
Of course I walked right past this and got what I came for and a few extra things.
The produce section ended up enticing me into buying baby carrots, shredded cabbage, and brussel sprouts! I was tempted to get more things but it was supposed to be a quick trip for salad – not a full shop.
Walking through the grocery store reminded me of how many things you have to avoid in a grocery store when you are eating healthy. Normally I shop at stores where I don’t even have to go past the bakery or aisles of sweets. Why walk past that stuff every time if you don’t have to? It’s one less thing to think about.
There are tons of grocery store “traps” and crazy marketing tactics. You just gotta walk right past them all!
