Sharing My World 20-02-2023

Here is my post for Share Your World, hosted by Di.

When food shopping, do you go with a list and stick to it, or buy on the hop?
Always a list. Supermarket shopping online or essentials shopping in the village shop, always a list. I usually buy more than what’s on the list, for example stocking up on condiments or whatever. Sometimes I even miss something that’s on the list!


When clothes shopping, do you prefer to shop in a store or buy mail order?
I rarely clothes shop. I get a lot of bits and bobs for birthdays and Christmas. I’m pretty sure the last clothes I bought was my North Face waterproof jacket just over three years ago. That was in an actual shop, I’d never buy something that expensive online as I needed to check it was a good fit and the sort of thing I wanted.


Do you like shopping for shoes?
Nope. The last time I did wasn’t too bad – it was the first time I ever took a chance and did it online. Nice pair of Nike’s. Fitted perfectly.


Do you enjoy shopping alone or with friends/partner?
I always go alone, when it’s as quiet as possible, in and out as quickly as possible. A “surgical strike”, if you will. Group shopping isn’t really a thing that we blokes do.

    I’ve forgotten things on my list too! Mostly though, I forget the list. :/

    One of the recommended posts that show for me under the likes goes back to your Shopping Around the World post from 2014 that introduced me to Puppies on a Roll! Blokes may not do group shopping, but every guy loves Puppies On a Roll….

    I hate shopping. More to the point, I hate malls and huge parking lots and long exit lines. I’m glad I’ve finally found a few places who make clothing that (usually) fits.

      Me too, that’s why I always shop early before everyone has really got going so it’s as quiet as possible.

    I like your comparison of a shopping trip to a surgical strike. ๐Ÿ™‚

      The supermarket can be a bit of a warzone ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
