  • i just dont buy a lot
  • I shop early in the morning, before the crazy housewives are let loose. I have also noticed that they are not present early Sunday morning in particular.
    • Linda Joy
      I also noticed 2-4 am is a slow time, but probably not convenient for most. And when school lets out. They're all at school. But traffic can be difficult at that time.
    • lavender
      I used to do my shopping around 6 am, but since moving to this town, I have learned it's not safe at that hour, especially on a Saturday morning, sadly.
  • Honey, that train done left the station! But it has nothing to do with grocery shopping. I never really thought about it being difficult until my body started falling apart. I just always did it. I used to shop once a week when the boys were home. Now I usually shop once or twice a month. Since my challenges are probably different from yours why don't you tell me which part is difficult for you? Maybe we can give you some pointers.
  • Self-control, lots of it.
    • Boola Boo
      HA! I must have said this a while ago. Now it's high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

      Those low shelves are murder.

  • Having a cup of tea in the cafĂ© beforehand, then making fart noises when my partner bends over to get something off the low shelf, don't worry he mainly does it to me. Having a quick flick through the newspapers and magazines without buying.
    • mugwort
      I look through the contents of magazines I see if there are articles I want to read. I don't want to waste my cash on a magazine I don't want to read., I like your idea of a cup of tea in the cafe beforehand
  • When I'm in a major chain grocery...nothing. It begins before crossing the threshold, though. It begins when I pull into the parking lot; there is little difference tween it and the store aisles. All I can do is minimize exposure time! In and out! When I'm in a smaller independent food store, there's no crazy to begin with! Apples n oranges!
