Financial experts say the best way to keep on budget is to make a grocery list and stick with it.  But what happens when you forget the grocery list at home? No to worry as research shows the best way to shop, even with a list, is to wander the aisles. After observing more than 700 consumers, researchers learned that, when shoppers are looking for items they don’t normally buy (but forgot their list), chances of remembering said items were higher if they walked through the aisles. In fact, if people in the study were buying familiar items, there was no need to cruise all the aisles. They could successfully rely on memory and go directly to the items, which is why only about half of shoppers use lists.
