Your grocery store is full of tricks and secrets that can prevent you from getting the best products. Reader's Digest decided to get to the bottom of things by chatting with people behind the scenes. Based on what they said, here are seven essential shopping tips:

1. Reach for the fresh milk. You will find the freshest milk way back on the shelves and in fridges, strategically placed behind all the milk bottles and cartons about to expire.

2. Save time and money with the right coupons. Got coupons with a barcode? You are in luck. They are really easy to scan so you won't hold up the line as you would if you were using regular coupons. You also get to save some cash. 

3. More products mean more buying. There is a reason why aisles are crammed with so many items, and why they seem to go on forever. The more products there are, the more likely you are to spend. 

4. Where to get good service. If you want truly good service, your best bet is at a chain store owned by an employee. That is because attitude is everything when an employee has stakes in the profits.

5. Don’t automatically go for "specials." We all like to save money where possible but many of us fall into a rut of buying things we don't need just because they have been marked down.

6. Check the ingredients. If health is your main goal avoid any foods that have more than five ingredients or ones that you cannot pronounce. These foods are over-processed and not great for your health.

7.. Dig for the freshest fruit. You are going to have to do some digging if you want to find the freshest fruit. The older produce is usually spread out on top for you to grab.
