I don't pay attention to prices when I shop...

Not entirely especially for things I buy on a regular basis like milk, bread, lunch meat. I do look at the prices of fruits to see what is a better deal but mostly I get what we need because I need it no matter what even if the price goes up a few cents.

I don't look at prices for groceries either. I need them no matter what, so no point.

I glance at the price of deli meat to see if something is on sale, but I'm going to buy something regardless of price.

Same here. Food shopping is food shopping to me, there's no way around it so I just buy. And I hate food shopping so I'm not gonna store hop for best prices and make it more torturous lol

I look at the price of different sizes of the same thing, because my Target LOVES to price the smaller container higher than the larger on lots of things. But other than that, I just get what we need.

I'm the woman walking in the store using the calculator pricing everything then using the tip calculator to figure in taxes if something I get has tax.

We also don't buy a whole lot of packaged stuff so really if apples are 30cents more then last week it's not like I can look for a different brand. The things we do buy packaged we have certain brands we like.

I don't either, I have to look at the receipt if I want to know how much something cost. My husband will ask me how much it came to for a total and I'll have to look at the receipt lol

I usually don't know the price of gas because it doesn't matter, I need it anyway.
