The Real Reason Milk & Eggs Are Kept At The Back Of The Store

You just want milk and eggs, yet you find yourself navigating through the aisles, past the dish soap, the children's toys and the vegetables - yet still no milk or eggs.

Instead, you have to reach the back of the store just to grab a carton of milk, passing through rows of tempting snacks and treats to reach it.

In grocery stores, you've probably noticed that the dairy and eggs section is always tucked away in the back. That's not by accident. 

Many say stores do it on purpose to make you walk past other stuff, hoping you'll buy more things you don't really need.

They call it "building a basket."

By making you walk around to get your milk and eggs, they hope you'll grab some extra stuff along the way. It's a sneaky way to get you to spend more money.

Another Reason To Keep Milk And Eggs At The Back?

But there's another reason too. Keeping the dairy in the back is actually more practical.

It's closer to where they unload the delivery trucks, so the milk stays cold and fresh. At least that's what grocery stores say "officially".

No matter the reason, stores use tricks like this to get you to spend more money. That's why it's a good idea to make a list before you go shopping and stick to it. That way, you won't fall for their tricks and spend more than you planned!
