Perishables
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Many people don't grocery shop every week. But they do need to visit the store for perishables. Perishables are foods that will decay or spoil after a period of time. This usually includes foods like milk, fruits, and cheese.
 
2     None of these foods will go bad in the short trip from the store to your house. If you are worried that the trip will be too long, you can bring a cooler to put the milk in. If it takes you more than thirty minutes to get home, you should bring a cooler. This will help keep it cold until you can get it home.
 
3     Plan to shop for perishables last if you are running to many different stores that day. Don't buy milk, put it in the car, and then go for a long lunch. Stop for lunch first, and then buy the milk.
 
4     When shopping, pick up the perishables last. This may mean that you start your shopping at the front of the store and work your way to the back.
 
5     You will often find food like milk and butter in the back of the store. Many people only stop in the store to pick up milk. If the milk is in the back, the person has to walk through the whole store. He may pick up other things he hadn't planned to buy. This helps the store make more money.
