If you are like most Americans, then you spent a significant amount of your weekly shopping time in the grocery store. You will encounter many tricks that encourage you to spend more money than you actually need to.
Impulse Buys Are Strategically Located
Magazines, packs of chewing gum, tins of mints, candy bars – these are just a few of the impulse buys that you can find located next to the checkout counter. You have probably also seen items such as:
- Disposable lighters
- Travel-size bottles of hand cleanser
- Small packages of tissue
- Hangover remedies
Be aware that these items are intended to tempt you. Resist buying these impulse items unless you actually have a current need for them.
