“Shop the perimeter of the supermarket and avoid the middle aisles”

Why?

The middle aisles of the grocery store are full of processed, packaged foods while the perimeter contains almost all of the whole, “real” food.

Did you know that nearly every supermarket puts the bakery right at the entrance intentionally?  Supermarket’s layout is not by accident. When you see and smell the bread and desserts, you immediately become hungry . . . and you will spend more before you leave.
