It is Monday and time for Share Your World with our host Di of Pensitivity101.
Here are your questions for this week based on your shopping habits:
When food shopping, do you go with a list and stick to it, or buy on the hop?
I do most of my grocery shopping online so of course I make a list. If I run into the local supermarket to get a few things I always write a list although sometimes I leave it on the table and go without it. However, the act of writing it seems to help me remember. Mum taught me to always make a list when I shopped. She always did and it was good advice.
When clothes shopping, do you prefer to shop in a store or buy mail order?
I would actually prefer to shop in a store so that I can see the clothes. You can’t always be sure of colours or fit when you buy online. Mostly though I do shop online which is the modern equivalent of the old mail order catalogues. I have to because there is not a lot of choice locally. We do get mail order catalogues too and I have occasionally bought from them but mostly the clothing is not to my taste. Some of the fashions are good for a laugh though.
Do you like shopping for shoes?
No. I hate it! I have never enjoyed shoe shopping.
Do you enjoy shopping alone or with friends/partner?
It depends. If it’s just a browsing trip I don’t mind going with someone. Normally I have to because the only way I can go to the shops is if Naomi takes me. Really I prefer to shop for clothes alone because I like to take my time browsing and comparing . Other items, craft items, books and so on I am happy to shop with Naomi.
I really enjoyed my trip to Hobart last week. I travelled there by coach and everything went smoothly. I stayed in an Airbnb, first time I’d done that and that was very good too. I also got to take lots of photos at the Wooden Boat Festival and visited a Cat Cafe. I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to do those things after being at home for so long.
Making a list is the practical thing to do.

Lovely post. Thanks for joining in Vanda. I hate shopping for shoes, and also trying clothes on in shops unless I have no choice and it’s for a special occasion like my niece’s wedding in 2017.
Food shopping has become a chore and necessity rather than a pleasure. I hang my head at the cost of some items I would usually treat us too, but it is getting easier to leave them on the shelf.

I don’t really enjoy trying on clothes in the shop that much but I do like to look at them in person. Lately though there has not been much that I like but in any case I only buy new clothes when I need them.

I hate trying things on in a shop, apart from shoes and even then I don’t enjoy shopping for them!
We’d be great on line shopping companions 😀
