When I am grocery shopping I only go down the aisles I need to. If I wander down an aisle just to avoid crowed aisles I tend to see something in the "other" aisle that may end up in my cart. They are generally bad choices and NOT on my list in the first place! Avoid the aisle and avoid temptation.
I wanted to avoid temptation while I baked my son's birthday cake, so I made sure to set a low calorie flavared water in my work area. Whenever I was tempted to taste a little frosting or piece of the cake, I drank my flavored water to satisfy the sweet temptation. It worked much better than I ever expected.
