I am the type who loves to shop and spend longer time in the grocery section. I love to look at different products and then trying them out. I like the idea of buying stuff for me, like food, toiletries, stuff for the house and just anything I find interesting to use or buy. Since there are various products with the same purpose displayed in the grocery aisles, I usually compare their prices and use the barcode scanner (if there are no price tags attached). But I usually go for quality and the price would not matter to me as long as the product is A-Okay.
I am thankful to the innovators of these barcode scanners. I don’t have to run back to the aisle to check on a price, it is easier for cashiers too to identify the product’s prices and encoding them is systematic. Modernization like this has helped many people especially the moms and students like me who live on a budget. I don’t go overboard because I know how much a product costs and with barcode scanners, I can easily calculate my purchases.
Things like these we tend to ignore but when we look at it, they do serve a very good purpose and they make our lives so much easier.
