    Do you enjoy food shopping?

    Some people become nervous or don't like going out food shopping.  Is grocery shopping an anxious feeling for you?

    I usually enjoy grocery shopping as I try to plan for some creative meals. I do often look for sales and try to use coupons when I can.

    I have always enjoyed it, partly because I like to cook.

    I don't enjoy any kind of shopping and think grocery shipping is the worst. But since I can't find anyone to do my shopping for me, I have to do it or starve.

    I just love it. Especially produce. I think I like the people watching as much as anything.

    The only kind of shopping I like is online shopping.

      Online shopping has become an easy way out  over the years instead of getting into traffic or crowds. Thank you

    Yes, I do. I don't go very often. Planning to shop at the least crowded times makes it easier and more pleasant. I make a list just so I remember the "Must have" items or ingredients.

    I hate shopping of all kinds.  I hate fighting the traffic to get to the store, and I hate trying to find a parking space that doesn't require binoculars and a compass to keep me from getting lost because it's so far from the door.

    I hate the crowds and the fact that the shelves are sometimes bare or have a limited selection after all my trouble of getting into the store.  Then I have to lug whatever I do get to my car, and once home I have to drag it up the stairs.  Then I have to try and think where I can get the things that weren't in stock at my regular store and try to find time to fight traffic and parking and crowds to go there.

    Shopping online is a pain too.  Even if the shipping is free, which is a long shot, I have to be home when the UPS truck shows up.  I live in an apartment complex that most people consider the hood (it isn't, but some people don't know the difference because they've always lived in privileged neighborhoods).  True or not, I've never lived in an apartment complex where you could leave packages outside the door for long periods of time and expect them to stay there unstolen.  I can't even imagine having the newspaper delivered for that same reason.

    Recently UPS has started delivering to Post Office mailboxes and that's a little better, but the post-office is usually open when I'm working and closed when I'm not working.  Hard to find time to pick up parcels and be working at the same time.  The post-office has curtailed their hours just in the last year.  It used to be open so people could access their mailboxes 24/7.

    Frankly, I hate everything about all kinds of shopping.  If I could afford it, I'd have an assistant (like Martha Stewart's) who would take care of shopping and running errands of all kinds for me.

      You seem to hate lots about  what you have to go through to shop.  Interesting thoughts here coming from about having someone to take care of  errands for you. Thank you

    It's not an anxious time, I just don't like spending the high prices they are asking for food these days.

      True about the high  prices but I get too anxious and end up not enjoying food shopping thank you

    I used to go shopping on weekends and it was sooo busy.  When my schedule changed and I was able to go earlier in the morning, it became less frustrating.  And even more so, when I decided to switch from once a week to once every other week, it became better because there was more time in between I didn't feel like I was always making a list and menu and shopping.  It takes time to plan for two weeks of meals, but I find it so much better for our family!  If I have a plan, and can go in the morning, I find it somewhat enjoyable.  If I didn't have to pay for it, then I think I would find it quite enjoyable.  smile

      A proper plan does make shopping easy and less tiring. Thank you
