We typically hit up a grocery store three times a week and will spend just about 40 minutes there each time.
This amounts to nearly two hours a week or the equivalent of more than four whole days a year.
A further 22 minutes is spent simply driving to and from the store on each visit during a typical seven-day period.
An average of 19 products are purchased during each trip, which then takes 11 minutes to put away once at home – amounting to 186,732 items purchased over the typical adult lifetime.
The most popular time to go to the grocery store is 12:53 on Saturday. Each time we go to the grocery store we will spend about $92. This will work out to over $905,300 in our lifetime.
