What do you usually forget when you go shopping?

I find it frustrating sometimes that even though I already have a list when I go shopping, there are still some items that I forget to buy like soap and tissue paper. How about you? What do you usually forget?

I usually forget to buy deodorant and razors. That is why whenever I go out to buy these I usually buy two or three so that I have a reserve in case I forget to buy one again.

Good idea! I also do that too. Buy an extra item so I wont have to bother myself about it next time but there were also times that I thought I still have it and then just discovered that I dont have it anymore.

Hi. I have a bad memory. You know, I don't even remember to make a list before shopping. :) In case of need, I usually have some regular stuff in storage, like toothpaste, tissue paper, soap and so on. But I enjoy wandering around supermarkets and shopping malls, sometimes I just pick items from the shelves, and then put them back before leaving. Happy MyLotting!

haha! That's too bad if you forget to make a list. You're like my dad. There many times when my mom was away and he usually do the shopping and he always forget to make a list and of course, end up with a lot of things he forgot to buy. And he has to ask me to go back to the supermarket. Which was something I like to do cause I could buy anything I want when I am at the supermarket. lol

Hi, p3ks626. I may forget things like butter, mayonnaise, ketchup and sugar. I have also forgotten my son's Kidasure that he drinks everyday. That is why when I do go back out to the store, I will buy him several cases of them just so that I won't forget. I don't always bring me a shopping list when I go to the store, I try to remember what I need at home. I may need to start bringing me one. I just will make sure that I will write every thing down that I need for my home.

Same thing with me when it comes to butter. I like to bake and I have all the ingredients at home from flour to baking powder and it also happened to me many times when I wanted to bake something but I dont have butter cause I forgot to buy it.

I usually forget what I've come for. I know it's silly. I usually make a list but most of the time I don't look at it when I'm already at the mall to cross check everything if I got them right. I don't know, I just don't feel like holding a piece of paper while browsing at things inside the mall or the grocery. Anyway I don't mind forgetting a few things (if they're not that important anyway) because I'll have a reason to go out again the next day.

What's sad is that I always forget those things that are important. I think the problem now is that I over look things cause of the idea that maybe I have some stock of those things at home when it fact I discover I dont have it and I was already back from the supermarket. tsk!

Everyweek i forget something. I needed some birthday bags and two birthday cards this week. I forget that stuff. Everyweek it is something new. To many things to remember and some things i don't write down on the list. If i don't have a list im going to forget something because i can't remember everything i need. I seem to do pretty good but then in the middle of the week i have to run out and get something because there is always one thing you might think you have and you don't. I am glad to know im not the only one who forgets something at the grocery store every week.

I really hate it if I forget something cause its such a waste of time and money. When I forget something that's means I would have to go back to to grocery store and get what it is that I forgot to buy. Sometimes its frustrating cause we dont learn from our experience. I hope we will overcome this weakness.

I always forget something! It is actually usually soap, like you, or shampoo or conditioner or something like that, but it can be anything really. It all depends on what I am supposed to be getting that day, haha!
