Shoppers seek Money a Worth by Don Long Vii economist what Are we looking for As we shop whether it is shopping for food clothing appliances a House or what have you i am sure that most of us would say a i want to get the most i can for my this seems like a straightforward answer that you would have trouble arguing with. Yet As you begin to dig a Little deeper into what you and i look for As we shop you begin to see that actually it is a pretty superficial answer. It is fun to take just one item say meats and Analyse what you Are looking for As you shop. If you Are like me it will change from shopping trip to shopping trip and even from one mean to another. What i am looking for depends on so Many things things that can change quickly. Weather amount of Money and family plans Are just three of these things but they will help show How our shopping Outlook changes. Weather weather does play a big role in our meat shopping. If it is warn picnic weather we like Quick cooking grilling meats. For one thing we prefer to Cut Down on cooking heat especially inside the House. For another we Are More Apt to go in for outside picnic Type grilling. The cooler the weather the More Likely to look for longer cooking meats we Are. Family plans too affect what we want in meats. For example do you have any plans for entertainment before you again go shopping some research at Louisiana state University Sheds some interesting Light on How this May affect your shopping. They found that if you were entertaining an important male guest you were most Likely to want to serve Steak. However if the important guest were a women you were More Likely to serve Chicken. The status meat changed with the situation. For meat obviously the amount of Money available for meat also affects what you Are looking for As you shop. If meat Money is tight maybe As a result of those entertainment plans you May be most interested in the most nutrition for your Money. If things Arentt quite so tight you May want More status meats. What you look for in economic terms can change quickly and drastically. So we Are looking for value As we shop for meat for other foods for clothing for appliances or any other Purchase. Yet there Are Many things we include in that term these things weather Money available and family plans differ from one family to another and from one time to another. It is a never ending Job keeping our personal definition of a a value up to Date. Chairmanship Given Ellis r. S.
