It is not good to shop while we are hungry, I always buy a little bit more than I should, especially goodies, lol. How about you?

There are times when this has happened and yes, I do overdo it as well.

I work in a bakery for the largest national grocery store.  I can't tell you how many times I hear people say, "I should never shop while I'm hungry." My response is... "I shouldn't work with frosting and cake when I'm hungry."

LOL.. in fact they say you should never do grocery shopping on empty stomach because you end up buying things you don't even really need or simply more stuff.. and just because you are hungry! :))))

Even if hungry, I try really hard to stick to my grocery list as much as possible.

However, sometimes (once a month), I treat myself to Culvers on  the way home.

Usually, I do pretty good.  But sometimes...............  :)

I've been guilty of that more than a few times. Most of the time on the way to the grocery store I'm not hungry but then after I've gotten a few things the hunger will kick in. Hard to stay away from the snack aisle after that.

Sometimes, but it's not really a good idea. I wind up seeing everything and wanting it all!

I sometimes start shopping before I get hungry. If I do get hungry while shopping, I go to one of the nearby spots to eat, or I grab something from the deli and eat. We have some pretty nice grab and go deli items here.

I try not to.  I try to make a list and stick to it when I go shopping.

I always try and eat something before I go even if is just a breakfast bar.  Seems to take the edge off the hunger

My craving for chocolate motivates me to go shopping.  Honestly, I feel weird if I have no chocolate in my apartment.   :heart:

Have a great day!

I guess I am just hungry regardless.... when I shop I see so many tempting things that even if I am not hungry.. I get hungry then! It is just a matter of self control :D
