Do you shop with another person or by yourself?

I prefer to shop alone. The truth is, I hate shopping. When I go grocery shopping I like to get in and out as quickly as possible. I dont dawdle looking at the different prices of brands, nor do I window shop. Whenever Im with another person, they take their sweet time picking up everything in the store, putting it back, squeezing the fruit and vegetables, checking the labels on bread and meat. I'm just standing there with my already purchased items, waiting to go home. (The other person is driving) This drives me nuts! How about you? Do you shop with others or shop alone? Are you one of those who dawdles or do you know what you want, get it and get out? :-)

Most of the time I go into the store...get what I need/want and then leave...shopping used to be something I enjoyed....that was a long, long time ago. Now I endure it. Most of the time I prefer to shop alone....pushing my own cart....I hate having someone else push it.

You are like me. I hate crowds and just want to get it over with. No dawdling. :-)

@Starmaiden not a person for crowds...or line ups (queues). I become very stressed....I've abandoned my cart because of line ups at the checkout because I just could not stand to be crowded. This is why I'm unlikely to ever go to Disneyland.

I used to do that when my daughter was young. Taking kids shopping with you is not something I highly recommend unless you are shopping solely for them. :-)

I always shop with my husband especially when buying clothes not because he is the one paying but he is more fashionable than me. In the grocery sometimes I go alone and buy only whatever on my list.

I think getting the most for my money is more important then time. It's all a matter of opinion though and I don't think your wrong doing it your way. I go to Aldi's first for the lowest cost prices then get whatever else left I need at Walmart. You must save a lot of time shopping your way.

I shop with my relatives since we work better together buying our basic needs.

That's good. A group effort gets it done. Do you only buy for yourselves or you share the costs?

I like shopping alone. I am free to make choices for me without any recommendation. I don't want to increase my bill.

I don't usually go grocery shopping. My maid does that. I like shopping alone coz I usually take time trying on clothes and shoes and choosing the right things for me. I don't want to bother anybody. who can't stand waiting for me. Sometimes me and my friend would go makeup shopping but it's ok because both of us buy the same things anyway.

Thank god, my husband was born in a family where men go shopping. That is why we go shopping together - I choose and he carries

I shop with my husband, I have a list and I quickly buy what I need and come back home. I do not like shopping.
