I have a system but I'm not pedantic about how the stuff is facing on the belt. I like to have it in the order I want it bagged and loaded back into the trolley (which affects how it's loaded/unloaded in the car, which affects how it's put in the kitchen which affects how it's put away). For me it's:
*toiletries/cleaning/cat food/general household stuff
*boxes and packets
*meat & eggs
*anything that can be squashed (crisps, English muffins, pita bread)
*fruit and veggies
I buy bread separately.

I'm another that was a checkout chick so I order everything how I want it packed and put in the trolley.
* heavy items and stuff that doesn't need a bag
* pet food and cleaning products separately
* pantry items
* cold stuff
* fruit and veg
* bread and eggs
It really irks me when bags aren't packed correctly. If it's packed to my system it's easier to unload with a 'helpful' toddler at home

Yep- another ex-checkout chick here. It used to sh!t me to tears if people put their stuff up in random orders. If it was really bad, I'd get revenge on their groceries hehe.
I personally do-
-cold stuff first
-then fruit and veg
-then all other grocery items
-then cleaning stuff
-then bread/eggs last.

Excheckout chick here too.
I pretty much go through selfserve all the time now or Aldi. So get to pack it exactly as I like. I like to order it cold things, heavy items (cans, bottles, softer packaged items (biscuits etc), fruit & veg, meat, bread.
I had a customer once who left a huge gap between groups of items he wanted packed separately. It made it so much easier to know how he wanted it packed. There is actually a lot of variation in how people like their groceries packed so if you have a request be upfront about it. Its best to say somethiny before the operator has even started to save re-packing.

I just like the fridge/freezer stuff bagged together if I'm not going straight home and i put it in a freezer bag.
Otherwise everything gets mixed together...laundry items and haircare....cheese with tissues

DH is more anal with it than me. He prefers to just get the things scanned, and then place them straight back in the trolley, so he can pack them himself when we leave the store.
For me, I think I just try to keep the food products away from cleaning products, and heavy stuff away from stuff that squishes easily like bread or eggs. Apart from that, I'm not particularly fussy.

I place my groceries on the belt in the order I want things packed. I hate when non edible things are packed with edible things (unless it's benign like tissues or paper towel). Basically anything from the cleaning product aisle should not be packed with my food and meat should always be in its own bag. A month or so ago I bought mouse traps and the girl put it in the same bag as my food. Now I know the mousetrap itself doesn't have dead mouse on it, but I'm more concerned about contaminants from the items around it in the shelf in the supermarket (rat poison, ant bait etc etc). I can't believe the girl thought it wasn't an issue!

I always make sure my meat is bagged separately. Cleaning products separate too.
So while I don't really care how it goes on belt I do ask for those things to be bagged separately
