Consumers don't make a list before they go. It always helps to have a clear plan of what you're going to buy before you hit the store. To help, there are a number of apps that can get you organized. One, ZipList, is an online recipe box and shopping list sys- tem that syncs across desk- top, tablet and mobile devices, so you can stick to your list and not forget important ingredients. 2. Shoppers buy food when they're hungry. Shopping hungry oRen lead to impulse buys and pur-. chasing more than you need. 3. They don look dow Brands pay a premium to be displayed at eye level, so look- ing down can be a way to find the same-quality items at lower prices. 4. People shy away from the generic brands.
