Now you can ask me what I expected from W*M, but they have whole wheat tortillas for $1 so I go there to stock up now and then. I've long been suspicious about W*M for having drinks in 3 different aisles of the grocery section. I guess now that I use a fitbit I don't mind the runaround so much. But I can't help feeling like I'm a rat in a lab at W*M, and they are constantly crunching my data to find out how to get me to consume more.
Today I was going across the back aisle, which is a cold deli wall with the yogurt and cottage cheese, and the cookies and crackers were facing it. I thought "that's a strange place for that." Then I was checking nutritional secrets of success on a SparkCoach assignment and realized "they're putting junk food on the perimeter on purpose!!!"
Maybe next time I go I'll just buy tortillas. And maybe some fruit. I really should only shop W*M with a written list.
