Secrets of Success

Perimeter Grocery Shopping




When shopping for groceries stick to the perimeter of the store and avoid the aisles. The perimeter usually contains your produce, meats, dairy aisle and bakery allowing to reduce the amount of processed and sugary foods you purchase.

More Information:

The frozen vegetable aisle is also valuable, but avoid the sections of ice cream and frozen pizzas.
