What happens/ What do you do when you go for shopping at a suppermarket?

My natural inclination is option 3...
Then sometimes I try to wise up, and end up with 4
Nevertheless... I aspire to become 7 someday...

I write a list for the things I can't forget plus I buy everything in the store because of a bad habit of shopping while I'm hungry.

Well when I used to do my bi-weekly shopping I was very good about having my list and coupons in hand. Now that we live in an apartment.....the fridge came with it and its smaller.....I tend to just shop daily for our main meal. With this I find that I tend to buy other things that I didn't have any intention of buying. So it'll be nice to get back to the regular shopping............except for my meats, veggies and fruit. The store is only 2 minutes away and the fresher the better.

Wow as I read that list after each item I said "Yep I do that". I do every single one of those things

If I had to pick just one tough it would be that I write everything down on a list. If it is just two or three things then I rely on my memory, but for a bunch of things I will write then down.

I tend to be # 4. But my fiance has a tendancy to be #1. We always go together and sometimes he says"can't buy it if it not on the list" Grrrrr. But what is funny is he makes the list and writes everything in singular. So this is what our list looks like when he writes it:
-orange
-apple
-yogurth
-egg
-grape
Next time I see the list I will see:
-1 slice of bread
-1 slice of ham
-1 fish stick
lol
