Plan your Route: Don't just wander the aisles aimlessly, because your unconscious footsteps will likely direct you right toward your junk food of choice. Instead, look at your grocery list and plan a route that avoids temptation. If you need an item that's located near the tempting foods you're trying to avoid, walk fast, grab the item you need, and go.
Get a Better Treat: Just because you don't want to waste money or get fat on junk food doesn't mean you don't still like a treat now and then! If you avoid your major grocery store temptations, reward yourself with a new fruit or exotic fresh vegetable, some flowers from the floral department, or a beauty product from the make-up aisle. Don't let yourself buy the item if you also give in to the junk food—make it one or the other, and you'll be able to make the wiser choice.
If you avoid wandering past your most dangerous and decadent junk foods, and you bribe yourself with a better treat if your resolve stays firm, you too can overcome grocery store temptation!
