Exclamation Re: Grocery Shopping Tips

Grocers put the staple items (bakery, produce, meat, and dairy) around the perimeter of the store. Thus, if you need just a gallon of milk or a head of lettuce, you have to walk past every single tempting "end cap." That's the retailing term for the ends of the grocery aisles, where stores stock impulse items (for example, a big cookie display right next to the milk). Beware!!!
