Do you have any routine that you follow when you go food shopping? For me, I always start out in the produce department, then I go down each isle and then I circle around to the meat department and the last isle is the frozen food isle. I do the same thing every time.

I make my list where everything is in order from front to back of grocery department, that way I can get done as quickly as possible. If I need to get something in general merchandise or I have to look at the fishies (cause I have my son with me), I get the GM first and work the grocery from back to front. I almost always forget something, though, so that adds a few minutes when I have to go back and get it. That also only usually happens when I have my son with me, a fussing child can do that to you.

I make a list also, atleast I try to. I'm bound to forget something if I don't have it written down.

beong slightly OCD, everything I do is systemmatical. I start in the produce, go to the meat section, beef first, pork then chicken. Then I head to the canned vegetables & soups, then off to the dairy area, frozen foods, then paper products.

I find having a routine gets me in and out of the store quicker. And I know where everything is in the store.

Usually stores are set up that way, so the first thing(usually)on your right hand side will be either bakery or produce.. Meats are almost always along the back of the store. That is how they control traffic flow. Stores are not just thrown together. They are planned to get customers to shop a certain way.
