What's your favorite thing to shop for? Since it's Saturday let's go shopping...or at least pretend. Sometimes it's easier both on the wallet and on the body.

I've never loved shopping but I don't usually mind shopping for groceries. I know where things are in my favorite store, keep my coupons organized and get in and out.

Otherwise, if not food then probably for building/home improvement stuff. Nothing like digging thru a stack of lumber, boxes of nails, or cans of paint turn

Chutzie...and for those who don't know me...yep, I'm female. smilewinkgrin

I love to shop for material to sew most of all. I have a room full of material, but I always love to buy more. It gets my creative juices going. I have patterns and notions galore and love to shop for projects. I may not get to them for years but I will get to them.

I hate grocery shopping. It is a nuisance and everything is so super expensive I want to cry. I usually go every two to three weeks. Grrrr I hate it.

Thanks for letting me share.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

I love two places -

The craft store. I like to sew and paint and putz around with fun stuff.

The book store - reading is my #1 passion in life.


I am with you on the grocery shopping thing! The worst is the standing in the long checkout lines and the screaming children hyped up on sugar and turned loose!

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

Ohh I so love to go antiqueing, I could spend a furtune in an antique store everyday of the week and you find so many intresting things sometimes.  I love old things they seem to have so much character that the new stuff just doesnt have, not to mention there is something in holding an object that is humdreds of yrs old and then you just sit and think who elses hands have been there or what kinda of house if used to be in.  It almost is like walking back in time
