We have a suggestion to cut your grocery bill, and it doesn't involve clipping coupons, but you will be surprised by what it does involve.

The next time you're shopping for groceries, leave your phone in your pocket.  Or better yet, in your car. Research says you spend 50% more when you're using your cell phone while shopping.

Think about the reason...

Your phone is distracting and makes you go slower.  And the longer we're in a store, the more we buy.


This is thought to be because using a phone distracts people from their shopping lists and the so-called 'autopilot shop', a process in which consumers take a routine path to their regularly-purchased items.

If you compelled to check text messages or social media while shopping you may want to make out a list and stick to it.
