Like most grocery stores in Europe (at least that I’ve seen), you must weigh your own produce before bringing it to the cashier. The local Tesco is no exception. Unlike grocery scales at other stores whose UI starts with a menu, this one also features a list of most commonly purchased items. It turns out that the two items of produce I bought today – bananas and carrots – were on that list.

I was likely a simple change to add this to the scale’s UI, but it has saved me and others lots of time. It’s a reminder to strive for continuous improvement, and to frequently check products for simple changes that might make a big difference to consumers.
