Items the stores really want you to buy are shelved at the more convenient eye and chest level and all that is required for getting one to put in the grocery basket is a simple reach.
Why People Don't Bend
- Restrictive Clothing
People shopping after work in business clothes probably will feel too constricted to do a lot of bending. Who wants to back out of the store with ripped pants, right? A good solution is to dress comfortably when shopping. Avoid plunging necklines, straight skirts, tight jeans and tight belts.
If you want to comfortably check out those bottom shelves, wear mini-workout outfits which are more conducive to bending down and around the grocery store aisles to find the best deals.
- The Fear of Losing Your Balance
If you have a fear of tumbling over and ending up sprawled out on the floor try using the grocery cart to help steady yourself. Bending and looking at lower shelves is an awkward position.
- Dropping Things
Anything loose may fall out when bending and require even more bending to pick up (ugh.) Glasses, wallets, keys, anything in pockets are at risk of sailing down the grocery store aisles. Remove the fear and secure loose items.
