Thumbs up Secrets for Success # 49

When you enter the supermarket, do you find yourself putting items into the cart that weren't on your list? Retailers actually arrange their stores to encourage impulse—and often unhealthy—buys. Just think about the candy bars right by the cash register or the aroma of fresh baked goods greeting you as you walk in the door. Is this a coincidence? Not a chance! Fight back with these tips:

Make a list, so you'll know just what you need and be able to go straight to it.
Shop the outer walls, where fresh produce, meats, dairy, and grains are displayed. Avoid inner aisles filled with processed items.
Never shop on an empty stomach! Plan supermarket trips for after a meal, when you won't be as tempted.
Read labels. If it's high in fat, calories, salt, and preservatives, put it back!
Avoid "free" samples. The little taste often winds up triggering an unnecessary purchase.
Bring a friend to help you stay focused.

Now you're a savvy shopper! Take that, marketers!

As we age, we lose elasticity—unless we stretch. Stretches will keep you moving with grace.
