Grocery Shopping While Hungry

Don't do it. Don't go grocery shopping on an empty stomach. Because you end up bringing home all kinds of crap stuff you had no intention on buying.


I did that on the weekend. Shopped for groceries while hungry and brought home one too many things. Like a chipmunk storing food for the winter. And I even had a list with me.


Have you ever done this? Gone grocery shopping on an empty stomach? If you haven't, don't. If you have, don't do it again. Don't.

  1. Oh yes. Yes indeedy. And I love the Oatmeal cartoon, lettuce slices and diet water vs lardwiches and a cheeto melon!

  2. That grocery shopping while hungry is so true.

  3. So very true. However, I have also found that when I grocery shop when I'm full I don't buy near enough food, which entails going back to the dreaded store a couple of days later to restock.

    1. Yes, there is that! It's happened to me. When you're full, nothing looks appetizing.

  4. I always go grocery shopping first thing in the morning, right after breakfast. But having hubby along does add some things that weren't on the list. Never, never go without a list :)

    1. That's my usual time for shopping, too. And only during the week; never on weekends. With a list along. Always. But this weekend was an exception. It's been so busy lately with the home renovations that the trip to shock for a few things was urgent. Thank goodness my husband wasn't with me because - like your hubby - he adds some things that I didn't intend on buying!

  5. I often went on an empty stomach, it was not a big deal since I have a strong will. However, I just don't know how junks fell in my cart on those occasions...

  6. I don't think I ever have, at least not "I'm hungry right now" kind of mood

  8. Too cute :) Not usually since we go grocery shopping usually on Saturday mornings after breakfast, but a few weeks ago we went to Costo AFTER breakfast and everything and anything looked good that day :) The good thing is now we won't have to go shopping for a bit except for the essentials, fresh veggies, etc.

  9. Oh yeah....I've grocery shopped while hungry many times. And yes, I always end up with a bunch of junk food!

  10. I've learned not to do this too. Otherwise the cookie aisle claims me as its own.

  11. I'm not the grocery shopper here. I can see that on an empty stomach you could buy more stuff.

  14. ... never go shopping without a list.

    ... if you go shopping with a list - stick to what's on the list

    Just two tips that can work! LOL!

    All the best Jan

    1. And most of the time that's exactly what I do. But when I'm really hungry...oh boy...

  15. Yep, done it, but have also gone on a full stomach and still bought things that weren't on the list. It all depends on what I've seen that's on sale and gone, oohhhh, I might have some of those, and one of those, and some of them.
