Several months ago, my local Stop & Shop installed barcode scanners so that you can scan and bag your groceries as you go along. Can I just say how much I love doing this? Granted, most times I start shopping this way I end up having to go to a cashier, regardless (either something won’t scan or I find some meat with a coupon… something like that). But still, just the fact that it adds up my total for me as I go along is great. Plus, very often it gives me “coupons” based on my shopping history. Since you pretty much never get a coupon for strawberries in the Sunday paper, getting on on the scanner is awesome. Does your grocery store offer this service? What do you think of it?
