Did you know grocery stores are set up with intentional methods to trick shoppers into spending more money? Learning how to navigate through these traps will help you stick to your budget. In this video, Matt goes over some clever grocery shopping hacks guaranteed to save you money.

One thing to be aware of is that stores will put their highest profit items at eye level; front and center. The slightest bit of effort here will go a long way. Make sure you’re looking at the top and bottom shelves for the best prices.

Did you ever notice that the dairy section is always in the back of the supermarket? That’s because they know many customers are just coming in to buy milk or butter.

By placing the dairy section in the back you’re being forced to browse through the entire market which can lead to impulse buys. Don’t lose focus. Just beeline straight to that milk.

It might surprise you to know that there is a best day of the week to shop. It’s usually Wednesday. That’s when most supermarkets restock their shelves. Restocking means they’re going to be putting old merchandise on clearance.

Speaking of clearance, supermarkets usually have a clearance section, so be sure to look for deals there.
