I put it off until I have to usually...and then last night my dang credit card got declined so I had to use my business card. And I had money in the bank....fer some bizarre reason I had to activate my card again.

now that you have cat alarm clocks... more incentive to go sooner rather than later. I know that at some stores you can activate your card just by swiping it at the register. Maybe it only works for the older machines? You know what I am saying? because I sure as all don't.

after all these years we shouldn't have to activate or wonder whether we have or not anymore..you would think there was another way for them to know it was us..

For me it is a chore to go shopping. I do it when the fridge is empty and as fast as possible. I don't make any list : I take mainly the same things, so the list is in my head. The only things I take time to look at are fruits and vegetables : I look at the deals and try to change often.

@Rosekitty I get of the bus after work and I have a grocery store right there so I usually go every day and just browse around and check out what kind of deals I can find. I haven't made a big grocery trip were you buy groceries for weeks or a month at a time in 10 years

I cannot stand shopping. I hate going to the supermarket by me. It is a madhouse in that place. I rather go on off times and run in, get what I need and leave.

@Rosekitty I hear that. But I like going shopping more at night. The nuthouse store by me is not that crowded at night. And it is a 24 hour store as well.

I don't really mind shopping,as long as there is a familiar person with me. I am capable of going by myself but, get very anxious the whole time and often end up leaving without everything we need.

it does pass the time when a person is with me, that way i can have them get things and we can be done and out of there quicker..

Hah! Shopping is one of my favorite hobbies.. Specially here in Saudi where I can only go out once a month, twice if lucky. Its my time for relaxation too, more like recharging from energy draining work stress. I can enjoy longer hours roaming around the supermarket, no complains..

I work for a grocery store. You think it would be easier to shop because of that fact, but not necessarily true. I shop when I get off work, and that is usually several times a week. I forget things because I'm tired and wanting to get to bed.

I went to Meijer's last night....and I guess I lost all track of time because I was there for over an hour....and then the weird part was, it took me almost over an hour to put all my groceries away once I got home (?) It felt like a dream or something, or like I was in a Twilight Zone episode. Just seemed like I kept walking around and around putting stuff away, like it was some endless task that just kept going and going... Even my dogs were looking at me funny, like, what's wrong with you already? I don't know, I guess I just bought a lot. I don't mind grocery shopping at all.....as long as I have enough $$.

I enjoy finding bargains, markdowns. I try to only go at the time of day when I can find them. I like having coupons, but I had just as soon put them out for others to use to earn points on some of my rewards sites. I am moving to some distance away from stores so hope to shop less, and eat less.
