Does your DH organize the grocery cart and place....

each items perfectly in "his" order at the checkout counter? I swear to you ladies, my DH is NEVER going with me shopping again! He is sooooo AR about where each item needs to be placed in the cart! He even refuses to allow anyone else to bag our groceries because they need to STAY IN HIS RIDICULOUS order!

Needless to say, he has always done this; yesterday, however, he lectured me for 30 minutes in the grocery store about the purpose of all can goods being on the bottom of the cart! I wanted to run him over and still do!

UGGGHHH!!!

  • ha! my DH likes to just "chuck" things in the cart, no real specific order... same with when we're in the check-out line.

    IDK about that lecture on canned goods though haha, they can be stacked high rather than placed on the bottom :)

  • Haha he sounds like me! I even put them up on the treadmill thing in the order they need to be bagged. It's an OCD thing. I don't take my SO shopping because he too, just "chucks" stuff in the cart...mostly junk food...drives me nuts....

  • I throw them in the cart willy nilly, but I do try to put like all the cold and/or frozen things together, all the canned goods together, veggies together, etc, just so that all the cold/frozen stuff can kind of work together to stay cold. I never let my ex go shopping with me, b/c he would just want to buy a ton of junk food.

  • My husband is the same way. He has to bag and will rearrange all the items if I put them incorrectly. He is very anal about his grocery cart too.LOL

  • No...that sounds more like me. I like to keep everything together to make it easier on me when I put it away etc. My husband simply puts it in the cart & buys crap we don't need. I hate taking him because we overspend & buy a lot of extra stuff.

  • I think he is a tad bit extreme! I do have a system to my shopping cart too, but you don't deserve a lecture! At the end of the day, does it really matter how the groceries sat in the cart? My SO is pretty OCD-ish about other things, but I don't care, I just do things my way when he's not around. It's funny how we have to cater to the "special" people in our lives. LOL

  • My husband doesn't have any particular order about how things are in the cart. He will stack the frozen dinners and such, but that is more to do with making space for the rest of the groceries. He used to be a bagger and sometimes if the checker is getting piled up he will start to bag our groceries.

  • My husband doesn't shop much, but the organizing the cart thing, that's me. I organize everything. My mother said that even as a small child I organized all of my toys. It's in my brain to be this way. I couldn't stop it if I tried.
