Walk into most grocery stores and you’ll usually find the same things. The meat counter. The bakery. A floral department. Fruits and vegetables. Is this because all grocery stores are designed by the same person? No. It’s because these are very high margin items. Since you don’t have anything in your basket yet, you won’t be as careful about saving money since you haven’t spent any yet.
