SUPERMARKET LIES TO KEEP YOU COMING BACK
There are so many supermarkets and you think that there are more healthy options than lousy options. Wrong. They offer you many lies so that you spend more and keep coming back. I bet you had no idea that some of your buys are really bad for you. Actually, it’s probably most of them. From giant shopping carts to injecting your beef with saline solution – you may think you are saving and spending less but you are actually spending a lot more. Don’t be deceived by supermarket lies and instead, get educated.
BIG CARTS MEAN MORE STUFF, BIG SPENDING
Let’s start with the basics. Supermarket stores have grocery carts and they have only been getting bigger over the years. They have increased the size to get you to fill your cart, thus spending more of your money. So, in order for you to save and spend less, just use a basket. They are small and get heavy quickly – and you won’t want to carry that for too long which means you will get the heck out of there in a flash. And you’ll spend less of your hard earned money.
SALTY SAMPLES WILL MAKE YOU CRAVE AND SPEND MORE
The free samples are not free. By eating these sodium laden foods, you will only crave more. Do you see the lies? And then buy more! Don’t eat the samples! At a minimum, you’ll buy something to drink later, if not immediately.
PLUMP MEAT IS ALL LIES, LIES, LIES
Most supermarkets tend to add saline solution to their meat. Why? To “beef” up the meat and make it look plumper. And it adds weight, so you are actually spending more for less actual meat.
CAGE-FREE EGGS AREN’T CAGE FREE
Cage-free eggs aren’t actually cage free. These farm factories put their chickens in bigger cages which technically means cage free. So, do your research – these are all lies to make you spend more because you think you are doing good. But you are actually doing pretty miserably. You’re spending money to support something you actually hate. That’s a lie you’re paying for.
CANDY AND MAGAZINES ARE IMPULSE BUYS
Impulse buys are lined up near the cash register. While you wait for your turn do you tend to browse and eventually purchase something else? Something that wasn’t actually on your list? Marketers call these impulse buys. Most supermarkets have them. But you shouldn’t be tempted by these distractions. Look straight ahead and move the heck on! You don’t need to believe any of these lies and spend a penny more.
