Quotations are often temptingly placed in the entrance of the supermarkets and nicely presented to encourage you to grab them. If it is an offer that is needed, then the price must also be observed in detail, because not all offers are really cheap. In some cases, lower prices are presented, but there is less in the package than usual. For comparison, the consumer must be able to identify a label on each product, which has the price per kilo or 100 grams. This information is very helpful to be able to compare the individual products. If this is not the case, mental arithmetic, a calculator or a cell phone will help. This comparison method also applies to all other articles.
10) You just have to know where the cheap goods are
Most staple foods are reasonably priced if you know where they are in the supermarket. In this case, the consumer usually has to bend down. Because most cheap offers are on the bottom shelves. The expensive to medium-priced products are at eye level and higher. The comfortable person does not like to bend down, the market researchers also know that, which is why the products are usually sorted in this way.
11) Do not buy a product from the direct field of vision
This saving tip is not easy, because you have to be physically fit here. It means “bend down and stretch”! Supermarkets arrange their products on the shelves in such a way that the most expensive products are at eye level – precisely where it is easiest to reach them. The cheaper products are either at the very bottom or at the top of the shelf. Anyone who stretches and stoops will be rewarded with a careful bill for their wallet.
12) Always bend down for low prices
The cheap goods are always at the top or bottom of the supermarket shelf. The reason is very simple: The supermarket makes more money with the expensive articles, the so-called margin is larger. Therefore, the supermarket wants to hide the cheap products.
13) Weekly shopping
You should buy as much as you can from a weekly discount store. The regularity of shopping gives you routine and saves money through reduced consumption. If you shop weekly in the supermarket discounter and have one or more children, you know that it is not always easy to buy inexpensively and still everything you need.
14) Shop seasonal
Most of the time, the tip is already superfluous for all bargain hunters, because the cheapest products in supermarkets are usually seasonal products. The reason is that the fresh harvests must be sold out before they go bad. Tomatoes are therefore very cheap in summer and sometimes 50-100% more expensive in winter.
15) Don’t buy just because it’s cheap
There are many people who buy groceries just because they are on sale or because they are particularly cheap. It does not matter whether the food is already available in bulk at home or not. But that’s the wrong approach. So a lot of small sums accumulate secretly, which were cheap to buy, but lapping up in bulk – and invisible. You should therefore simply buy what you need and only occasionally take advantage of offers, especially if you do not have the food from the offer at home and if you have a plan for how to use it.
16) Reduced goods
Favorable prices in the supermarket often result from specially marked areas and products for reduced goods. The reason for the reduction or even the sale of products is:
