Finally, tips for fast grocery checkout are here! If you’re like us, supermarket shopping usually ends with a head-scratcher: Which line will be fastest? And when you choose incorrectly — and watch helplessly as other shoppers sail through while you’re stuck behind the guy with a hundred coupons — the frustration mounts!
In this New York Times article, the experts weigh in on how to pick a supermarket line for fast grocery checkout.
Some of the advice is counterintuitive. For example, it’s more effective to get behind a person with a full cart than several people with smaller amounts, because we underestimate the time it takes to transition from one person to another. Other advice just seems odd; people tend to veer right, so you may want to choose a queue on the left.
We hope you find it helpful. See you at the supermarket!
