24 Types Of Grocery Shoppers You Will Meet : The Grocery Game Challenge 2018 #3

YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOU WILL BUMP INTO AT THAT GROCERY STORE   YES, you will meet them all and perhaps you fit many of the models of grocery shoppers I will be talking about today in hopes of helping you understand more about the depths of marketing and self-awareness. When grocery stores work on their marketing plans part of that process involves catering to the different types of grocery shoppers that visit their stores every single day. Marketing teams explore all facets of shoppers because they want to make sure they capture them and keep them coming back for more. This is how money is made all over the world. The reason for this is because different personalities tend to shop differently whether they buy more or less based on the way they take-on the grocery shopping experience. Keep in mind that grocery shoppers may shop based on their generation as well their likes. I read a recent article that said there were 4 types of grocery shoppers. Consider both the Baby Boomers and Generation X who may have more disposable income since one may be retired or are living near or debt free and the other at home […]

Ditch These 6 Genius Grocery Sale Price Distractions : The Grocery Game Challenge 2017 #1 July 31-Aug 6

  SALE PRICE DISTRACTIONS BECOME A PROBLEM WHEN THEY DON’T HAVE A PLACE ON YOUR GROCERY SHOPPING LIST.   Sale price distractions are everywhere, not just the grocery store. You only have to think back to holiday shopping and understand the power of sales and marketing. It’s easy to say yes even when you want to say no. Every once in a while I get an email from a reader who is struggling with their grocery budget. What I always find interesting is that most of the concerns are typical to most shoppers. They are not new concerns, they are just new to them and can become a burden on their monthly budget. Let’s read what CBB fan Sophie has to say about her grocery shopping dilemma and offer her some tips to get her back on track.   Super Sale Prices Equal More Money   Dear Mr.CBB, I am a single woman in her 30’s who struggles to keep her grocery budget balanced. You would think it would be easy since I’m grocery shopping for one however it’s harder. I’m a person who likes to stress eat which means I’m an easy target for sweets and snack items. My […]

20 Garage Sale Tools You’ll Need To Attract Buyers

SELLING YOUR STUFF IS COMPARABLE TO RUNNING A BUSINESS- EITHER YOU WANT TO MAKE MONEY OR YOU DON’T.   Local garage sales for 2017 are slowly popping up as Spring has finally arrived but you’ll find the end of May into June, July and August the biggest garage sale months of the year. Typically garage sales kick-off on the Victoria Day long weekend at the end of May when most people poke their heads out from inside closed doors. It’s as if it’s safe to come outside. For those eager sale seekers there are people who host a garage sale as soon as the birds start chirping at the end of March. Spring cleaning is in full-swing with windows opened to let the fresh air circulate through the musty wintered house. This is also the time homeowners and renters realize they have far too much stuff. Mrs. CBB and I decided that this summer we were going to hold our first CBB garage sale and get rid of stuff once and for all. I’m a firm believer that any time I’m out to make/save money that I treat whatever I’m doing like it’s a business. A garage sale is a […]

The Ultimate Guide To Find Recipes For Free or Cheap: The Grocery Game Challenge 2016 #3 Nov 21-27

LET ME SHOW YOU ALL THE SECRET PLACES THAT RECIPES MIGHT BE TUCKED AWAY   Years ago the father would be the head of the household and go to work and the mother would be a stay at home mum who cooked, cleaned, grocery shopped, paid the bills and looked after the kids. Both are uniquely full-time jobs except the wife got to stay home which meant cooking meals from scratch was popular as were finding new recipes to create for family meal time. Picture the woman in the kitchen with her apron on and her family sitting at the dinner table while she serves the food. This was the image that was depicted back in the 50’s and 60’s but not everyone could afford to have a stay at home mother. This is a rare position these days although just because two parents go to work doesn’t mean the job doesn’t have to get done. We all need to eat which means we either create recipes, find recipes, eat out or buy convenience foods which I don’t care for myself. Juggling the role of working parents and homemakers is a tough job,(I know because I do this) but it […]

Costly Grocery Store Distractions You Should Avoid : The Grocery Game Challenge 2016 #2 July 11-17

IT’S EASY TO FAIL FINANCIALLY AT GROCERY SHOPPING ESPECIALLY IF YOU LET THE SOPHISTRY OF THE INDUSTRY WIN!   Once the prep work is completed to go grocery shopping, your next challenge is bypassing in-store costly distractions but it’s not that easy to defend yourself against. Consumers are complaining about costs at the grocery store because like everything else prices keep going up and pay cheques are stagnant. Who is to blame for this though? The customer wants better deals and the store wants their major suppliers to lower prices so they can roll them out to the customer. It’s a battle against each other and the emptied pockets will come from the customer in the end. Related: Loblaws sends strongly worded letter to major suppliers, asks group to lower costs Loblaw’s missive comes as the price war escalates between Canada’s biggest grocery retailers and as consumers increasingly seek out discount food options after two years of rising food prices. The moment you enter any grocery store you are now on their territory which means they can easily take control of your wallet, mind and appetite with the right marketing tactics. Odds are you won’t see a clock around and […]
