We’ve all heard the advice to never grocery shop when hungry. I’ve found that to be profoundly true – if I shop hungry, everything looks yummy and I buy things I would not have otherwise.
Today I discovered another level of that strategy. I had a grocery store secret shop that included reimbursement for $10 of food. Because I was not only not hungry but also slightly nauseated, I had a hard time finding ten dollars worth of anything that seemed appealing.
Granted it’s not something that happens too often, but shopping while nauseated is a real money saver.
