Is that weird? Does anyone else get excited about grocery shopping?



I'm all "Yes! Lets see how much food I can get for x amount of dollars today!" It's like a competition with myself or something. I love putting DD in the cart and finding all these deals.



Getting the fliers also makes my week, browsing through them and seeing what I can get cheap...

Not when I don't have a lot of money to spend. I HATE budgeting. But, if I know I have enough money to not bring a calculator, we're in good shape, I don't mind going and spending some time in the store :)

Yup because I love food and I get to leave the kids behind while I'm at the store. Its like a little break.

I like to grocery shop when I don't have the kids. Or back when I had an SO to go with me and wrangle the kids with me. :lol:



I really should get more into the deals they have around the store and couponing, but right now we stay between $100-$150 a week for a family of 4-5, so I'm not doing too horribly anyway.



But I used to love the look on my SO's face when we'd have X amount to spend and he was convinced we had gone like $100 over budget based on the amount of food in the cart and then we'd end up with HALF the dollar amount in our budget. That was always the fun part for me. :lol:

I love it! I like going to stores that have foods that you wouldn't find in like Walmart though. I spend a lot at the grocery store. Plus I go while Jett is in school because I hate taking him with me.

I hate grocery shopping. I think it's because of where I do my shopping.

You needs to shop at a store where shopping becomes a pleasure. :)

I'm not gonna lie, I love buying groceries. I could spend hours planning the list.
