What "type" of shopper are you?

When you need something from the store do you prefer to buy everything at once and it lasts a while or do you go get things here and there as you need them? Or something different?

I seem to function best when I get everything at once. It gives me peace that we're good to go for a while!

  • I prefer to go grocery shopping once a week if I can. I don't like making mini trips for fill ins.

  • I tend to get everything at once. Both for the peace of mind and it's only one trip with impulse items. :-)

  • I make a big list and do it all at once. I think if you shop everyday or so you spend more money!

  • I'm a stock up shopper. Except with food.

  • Everything at once (when I can afford it). Less chance of "impulse" buys and spending more than is available.

  • I usually get eveything at once but lately I'm wondering if it would be better to get things as needed.

  • thrift shopper

    Answer by fiatpax at 3:59 PM on Aug. 2, 2010

  • depends
    ie: Groceries: buy a bunch of meats, canned foods, as needed, veggies, fruits, bread etc
    Household Items:stock up on basically everything
    Clothes: for me and my SO we buy as we need new things, for our son we do big trips, he's 8 months and we're working on 18mos sizes right now :)
