Shrewd Food - Shop Star

Shrewd Food - Shop Star

It seems that we spend about 15% of our income on food and drink (not including alcohol). With that kind of money at stake it's no wonder that supermarkets are perfectly designed to entice you to spend. Their arsenal of tactics include mouth-watering-taste-bud-overloading smells from the bakery, store and shelf layouts maximised to help you part from your money and advertising wherever you look. Not to mention their happy-lullaby music chosen to dull you into a hypnotic sleep-like mode with your critical thinking switched off.

Are you ready to take control of your supermarket shopping experience and save money?
