My first principle in shopping: you can't eat it if you do not buy it. We managed 95% of the time not to buy it.
My BIL sold to grocery stores chains for years. He taught me all the tricks of the trade years ago. We now go with a list and almost always stick to it. The only normal exception is when I find a bargain on good foods that I was not planning on getting. I do not ever go down the snack aisles.
I do allow myself also to experiment with a new salad oil or vinegar right now or maybe a tasty sauce for meat.
I have learned to read the labels and look for my :no-nos" like high fructuous corn syrup. It takes practice but it works.
