The supermarket has always been my downfall. Ever since I became a Mum 4 and a half years ago anyway. There's always an excuse to go, and I find myself there most days. It's absolutely chocca block (parden the pun) with temptation for me, from the bakery, to the confectionary aisle, to the bikkies, and so very much more.
Now I have been very good since the lgithnening bolt hit me (figuratively speaking), and have totally avoided supermarket temtation, but now I feel it's time to make sure this is an ongoing thing, by reducing temptation.
So, from now on I pledge to make an effort to do more shopping at idependant fruit and veg stores, delis, butchers and bakeries. This will serve several purposes.
Firstly, I totally trust myself at these shops, since my problem is with sweet foods.
Secondly, it's much better for the environment, as when yoy buy more local produce, you reduce the huge transportation costs involed.
Thirdly, it supports small growers in my local area, rather than giant supermarket chains who monopolise the industly, short changing the growers, and squeezing the little guy out of the game.
If anyone else think of other reasons, help me out, but that will do me for now. Hopefully others might be inspired to do the same.
