I think that between the advertisments on TV and in the newspapers and the store displays, they make you feel guilty for NOT buying or making certain certain foods for holidays and occasions.
Good article. The free samples I take any more are fresh fruit. Our Wegman's usually offers these treats from time to time. I have a routine when I grocery shop which helps avoid impulse buying. It seems to help and I can look without buying 99% of the time.
This article makes so much sense. I've been trying to make a menu up and listing just the items I need to make my meals. Plus I do allow myself 1 treat after shopping to help curve the gotta haves. I usually pick orange juice, one of the small single serving bottles. Also lately I've been trying to just stay at the perimeter of the store where the fresh produce, meat and dairy are.
Though I think that having my meals planned out is the best strategy I have.
The only thing that gets me in trouble is going to the supermarker HUNGRY! Never ever do that.
