Did You Know?

Here are two “short, but sweet” savvy shopper tips – about food:

From Anonymous:

O.K. You said we could send in our secret shopping tips on ANY kind of shopping. Well, I just discovered   supermarkets arrange their shelves in a special way to entice you to buy the higher priced items.  Imagine?

I guess they figure you are too lazy to reach up or down so they place the most expensive items on shelves in special most-looked-at-zones.


The easiest place for you to look at or reach on grocery store shelves is between eye level and  knee level..  I think of that area as the “Danger Zone” because that’s where prices are most often the highest.  Do you think supermarkets have calculated this from psychological studies on human buying behavior?

Did you know the best prices and bargains are usually above or below The Danger Zone!

And from Caleb in Marietta, Georgia:

I have heard that fast music in a restaurant is the owner’s sly way of getting you in and out of the place – fast.  The more customers, the more income for the restaurant, right?

And it is little known that people unconsciously tend to chew in time to music!

Have you noticed  that finer restaurants provide soothing slow paced background music?  That is to encourage you to linger and enjoy.

All that fits right in with the old adage, “You get what you pay for.”
