Keep to the Outside Aisles

When shopping the grocery store, keep to the outside aisles. They put the sales on end caps. The farther you delve into the store the more money you'll spend.

Editor's Note: This is an interesting tip. Just thinking of the layout of my local Safeway, the outer aisles contain: fruits, vegetables, dairy, eggs, meat (butcher), bread and the bulk food cereal not far off. That's a lot of what you need when you go shopping. The best sales are usually on the end of the isles. You still need to venture into those center aisles for some items but overall this is a good tip at my local grocery store. Especially if you are trying to make as much from scratch as possible.

This tip was taken out of Atkin's book "New Diet Revolution" for staying away from processed canned foods and keeping to fresh vegetables, dairy and meat.

OH I MISS THE DAYS WHEN WE HAD A SAFEWAY HERE!! IT SEEMS SO LONG AGO. AND IT WAS. I DON'T KNOW WHY THEY TOOK IT AWAY BUT I DO KNOW IT'S NEVER BEEN THE SAME ANYMORE. CAN YOU BELIEVE THERE IS A STORE THAT HAS BEEN OPEN HERE FOR YEARS NOW, THAT WAS ACTUALLY SELLING WIENERS THAT THEY HAD PACKAGED UP A FEW YEARS AGO FOR A QUARTER, THAT WERE GREEN AS GREEN CAN BE??? THEY ACTUALLY DID THIS!! I TRIED AND TRIED TO TALK A DRUNK OUT OF BUYING ABOUT 10 PACKS OF THESE THINGS BUT NO LUCK. THE ONLY REASON I WAS IN THERE WAS BECAUSE I WAS SHOPPING FOR MY CLIENT AND THAT'S WHERE SHE LIKED FOR ME TO SHOP.
