  • If we need to stock up, we'll go together. If we only need a few things he'll go because I don't enjoy shopping much!

  • I do mine on the way home from work, so on my own. My husband doesn't mind doing it with me, but that would be another trip. So I save gas and time on the road. The downside is that I am tired and hungry after work and find the shopping a chore, and make impulse buys because something looks good. I used to take my mother shopping once a week, and I didn't mind at all even though it was an extra trip, but I wasn't so tired. But she isn't able to go anymore, and I can't justify the extra drive.

  • He hates shopping. I hate taking him. He's worse than one of the kids. I enjoy shopping alone, but who ever gets to go shopping alone? I have never had to yell at my kids in a grocery store, and for that I am grateful!

  • We sometimes go together, but sometimes I go alone, sometimes he goes alone. I would rather always go by myself, though. He's like a little kid and I'm always saying no when we're together... No, we don't need chocolate milk. No, put the donuts down. No, we already have eggs at home.... etc etc.
    And when he goes by himself... like this morning... we got a big thing of brownies from the bakery, some frozen pizza dunker things, and some other shit we don't need.
