Nope! Gave up 'routine' in every way possible once I left F/T work.
Just go as need be, especially when I've got some $$$$!
But I do enjoy just 'mall mooching' at a Westfield S/C, have a coffee, or lunch, or dinner as the mood takes me.
Read a book, or my ITablet. I find this most relaxing, after multiple years' of time-pinching!
I tend to do small shopping trips,often,as I live alone and enjoy my fresh items when they are just that:FRESH!!! My kind neighbour takes me shopping,and he likes to shop the exact same way as I do,so it is ideal for us BOTH!! Particularly with my fruit and veg which I eat so much of!!! When I was working and had a child at home,I would usually shop on the same day or evening each week,as I had my son to help me with it all.
I generally do my big grocery shop on the weekend (either Saturday or Sunday), so I have all the groceries ready for the week ahead. I find that the fruit and vegetables are generally fresher and more plentiful on Saturday mornings!
I'm very much a creature of habit and shop on a Saturday (late morning) as are hundreds of other shoppers. If I run out of something during the weekend and it's an absolute requirement I'll pop out to the shops and get that ingredient but generally it's Barre Class at 0800 on Saturday morning followed by a shower and shop!
Food shopping is more often than not a family sharing time as well. We will often laugh or become totally frustrated with one another. I take my time and read absolutely every label and compare every price whereas my husband just grabs what he thinks is the right product off the shelf and then moves on.
No. We never go on a set day. Just when things begin to run low and we have the time to do a shop. That can be stretched out to fortnightly if we don't need anything vital. We might go and get a few things between shops, such as fruit and vegetables and milk.
No, not on the same day each week. During the last 3 weeks, after or return from holidays, we shopped on a Friday. the flowing week it was a Wednesday, this week, Thursday, as were already out doing something else. Next week we’re going away to visit the little grand-daughters for 8 days, so we’ll shop the day or night we arrive home,
