My kids have special orders they need the food to go in.
Dh is crazy and even needs all the bar codes to face a certain way.
I don't care.

Fluff thread. . . Do you have order your groceries have to put on shop belt.

Nope I don't care either, DF on the other hand is so anal about how the groceries are loaded on the conveyor belt its nuts!
He also unpacks the groceries so he can organise the pantry the way he likes it

I used to work at a supermarket and learnt the proper way to pack things so I put mine on the belt that way because they don't seem to teach checkout operators which things should go together anymore! Cleaning products first, then cold items, then anything else heavy like long life juice and cans, then heavy f&v, then light f&v, then small toiletries and finally fragile items like bread, taco shells or biscuits. I don't care what way items face, like with barcodes a certain way or anything but I'm certain that I don't want my canned tomatoes with my bread!

Yes I have a system! Can't handle chaos I must have order.

Yes, I have a system, but if I am in a rush I get a bit lax.

I just try and group things according to how they are bagged.
Fruit/veg and bread are loaded on the belt last.

I like cleaning and bathroom stuff together, pet stuff together, tins together , meat together and fruit and veg together. I think the barcodes thing is a bit wierd though.

I always sort them as I unload the trolley. Heavy items, cold items, meat, pantry, veg and then eggs and bread.

I load them onto the belt how I want them bagged. Tend to put the heavier/sturdier group of items first so that I can then put them on the bottom of the trolley.
Drives me bananas if the checkout person then puts something random together Or worse still...
SQUASHES MY BREAD
Order is usually something like:
* Cold and frozen goods including milk
* Sturdy pantry items
* Hard fruit and veg, soft fruit and veg
* Soft items (bread, biscuits)
Depends how many cleaning products and size as to where they go.

Shopping at aldi has changed me.
They literally throw your items at you as they are being scanned super quick, the first couple of times was so terrifying!
Now I put things in order of heaviness and fragility regardless or not whether I'm at aldi just out of habit.
