Walk clockwise around grocery stores !


Because you’ll save money.

Researchers have discovered that “shoppers open their wallets wider when moving through a store in a counter-clockwise direction.”

On average, they spend $2 more per visit.


One theory is that most shoppers are right handed … and like most basketball players, they go to their right better…. so, impulse items stocked to their right along “walls of value” are easier to grab and throw in the cart.

If you are right handed, walk clockwise and the “wall of values” will on your left,  and will be less tempting.
