How can I cut down impulse shopping?

Is it on sale, or is it just surplus?

Never buy anything from an "endcap" (end of aisle) display in the grocery store, unless it is an advertised sale item. Frequently, stores will put surplus stock on an endcap display with a big colorful sign to make you think it's a sale item. By buying from an endcap, you not only end up paying full price, you also lose your ability to compare prices with other brands.
