My fiancé will be the first to tell you how much I loathe any type of shopping. Whether it's for clothes, cars, or groceries, I want nothing to do with it.

Every now and then, I'll accompany my better half to Market Basket on a Sunday, but she knows I struggle when it comes to keeping the course. Thankfully, we both have the same mindset in terms of getting in and getting out as quick as possible. It's a mission and I'm the recruit.

The few times I have showed up to lend a hand, I've seemed to have developed an unorthodox habit.

Have you ever noticed that while you're strolling the aisles, one by one, you're likely to be surrounded by the same people that you started with since the produce or aisle one? If not, keep this in mind the next time you have to go food shopping.

If you're aware of your surroundings, you can easily pick apart the people who enjoy taking their sweet time and those who want out of the store from the get-go. Choose the shoppers who are in a rush to get home to catch the Patriots game over anyone else and you just might find yourself at the checkout quicker than expected.

These are the people who know what they want and have conducted a quick escape route from the entrance to the cash register. Follow their path of precision and watch the stress level drop to a barrable level. A good eye is key, so choose your shopping shadows wisely.

As ridiculous as it sounds, this has worked for me multiple times. Try it for yourself- you're welcome.
