I can’t stand grocery shopping. For me, it’s just another chore, and I avoid the supermarket like nothing else.

Do you like going grocery shopping? Does this influence how many trips you make to the store in a typical week?

No I don't like it .I have to watch what I spend, and come up with new ideas.
In the end, I come home totally fed up!
Making money go far and buying food that will last, and make good meals all gets quite difficult these days....
If I am looking forward to making something, which I need to buy the ingredients for, or if I am buying a treat for someone else, then I enjoy it. Otherwise it is just a chore that takes up time.
I love shopping for anything.

However I do it online as I am a hopeless compulsive spender and if I go in the supermarket I come out with so much that I like the look of but do not really need, and furthermore, do not really want.

And it is mostly the things that are bad for you that I will buy.

I throw a lot of food out already so yes, while I like shopping, I do not go often.

I like food shopping. Firstly I am grateful I do have the money to buy food. Sometimes it is a shock how much one spends on just a few items though.I go to the supermarket about twice a week, sometimes three times. I like to buy vegies at the local market but it's better if I grow them or swap with another gardener. Sometimes I travel to Rite Price to get some bargain groceries.I prefer to go to the supermarket when it's not too busy.
I like grocery shopping, even just for a browse.

I like to see what new products are out there and get dinner inspirations.
A good tip to avoid overspending: use a carry basket instead of a trolley.

Use the basket to limit on what you can buy.
When the basket feels heavy on your arm, that is the signal to tell you to stop.

It makes you focus on what you are buying.

Great idea!

I find Grocery Shopping, now, very relaxing! I have my list, & off I go! I really enjoy just 'browsing', too, as there're 'new' items' appearing all the time.

I tend to Woolies' buy at a NON-Westfield S/C, that way, I don't have to 'watch the clock' re: parking time. That's so annoying! I WILL NOT pay for parking that I'd had free since 1979!

It's nothing for me to spend 1-2, or more hours' leisurely going up & down the aisles'. It's marvellous to be able to do so, as in good health, & now, as retired, the time!

45 years' of a 'rushed life' now has its' reward!

After groceries' bought, I have a well deserved Muggachino, & really enjoy it!

Yes I go food shopping, with my husband, because I don’t drive, & it would take to long getting it home on public transport. SomI always have my husband with me, & I always tyke a shopping list. That way I can get the shopping finished in about 25 mins.And when my husband also comes, he’ll ask if I’d like to buy some flowers, & sometimes I do, if I like what the shop has in stock, but if the flowers are already flowering & not still in bud, I won’t buy them because they won’t last as long! I just go shopping for the 2 of us, once a week, usually after we've been to the movies. ($20 for a yearly membership.)
