    How do YOU Shop?

    Life is getting more and more accessible, often without even having to leave our homes now.

    Do you....

    1) Shop online, support local, or vary by product
    2) Do you buy organic or fair trade?
    3) Do bulk shopping, or go based on store preference ?
    4) Pay cash, credit, or debit?
    5) Seasonal shop or wait for sales (ie buy winter clothing in winter or summer when at on sale)
    6) Use coupons or price match ?
    7) Make a shopping list or go up and down the aisles

    OR

    8) you don't shop and your significant other does the work for you

    Everything was impossible until somebody did it!

    I've got 99 problems......but my squat/dead ain't one !!

    It doesnt matter how good looking she is, some where, some one is tired of her shit.

    Light travels faster then sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    I do all of the above but wait for sales.
    I support local business when I buy large items etc. Some things I have to buy offline for example certain tools or car parts.

    The other aspect is I will drive way the hell outta my way to support someone that likes to do business and work with me. There is an equipment rental company that I love 70 miles away I use constantly because they care for my business.

    I spent thousands on guys that gave no shit about me locally, that I finally said fuck you to. They thought they were the only option around so.... Ok... I went far away.

    Great decision too the new company is cheaper and also deal my brand of equipment.

    Clothes my gf buys or I buy as I need it. I am a simple guy. Lots of impulse shit in my life.
    My redbull bill is fuggin stooopid!

    Groceries we go where sales are (gf does).

    Btw organic is an absolute load of bullshit.
    If people had a clue they wouldnt wasre their money on an equal or lesser product. I have worked both sides of the organic world and the shit is treated the same. People are gullable.

    1) Whatever is most convenient, usually online
    2) DNo way jose. I aint no hipster
    3) Depends on what it is. I buy bulk when things are on sale for stuff like my supps
    4) PCredit. I pay off the balance every month, but its safer than debit and easier than cash
    5) When it's needed. So seasonal
    6) When there is a non-negligible price difference (I am not going to price match for 2 bucks)
    7) Always with the list. I want to be in and out as soon as possible

    OR

    8) She left me because of 7)

    Cash is easiest, most economical and safest of all payment methods. Unfortunately no option for online shopping...

    I buy in bulk, no list needed, my diet consists of the same foods week in week out. Online for supplements, sales for protein. I've got so much clothes it would be a sin to waste more fabric buying more...

    1) half and half depending on the product
    2) not on purpose. I heart GMOs
    3) not a bulk shopper
    4) cash or credit (paid my cards off every month- never carry a balance)
    5) prefer as sale but buy what I need when I need it if I can afford it
    6) rarely
    7) little bit of both
    8) he's in charge of any purchases that require research (cars, phones, other tech)

    8) you don't shop and your significant other does the work for you
    1. Online and at the local store depending on what I'm shopping for.

    2. I think organic is marketing BS so I just buy food.

    3. Bulk and store by preference. Depends on what I'm shopping for.

    4. Cash for my impulse buys, credit for online and debit locally.

    5. WTF is full price? I'm cheap so I look for sales and still try to get more of a discount. Military or what ever they will give. If you dont ask you will not get the discount. (Drives the wife nuts but still do it all the time)

    6. Both. I'm cheap

    7. Have a list but still go up and down aisles.

    8. Best way to shop. Let the wife do most shopping. She is a bargain shopper big time.

    You need to check your E2 levels. Real men don't shop, they just buy, Real men don't have time to shop.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ THIS ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    It's a sure sign of a bullshit movement if they choose a name for it that amounts to redefining (co-opting) an existing term or if they pick a name that automatically stigmatizes everybody who isn't on board with it..

    Like "clean eating." Only an idiot would want to eat dirty food, right?

    And then there's all the hyphenated justices; social justice, environmental justice, food justice, marital justice. All bullshit. Justice is blind. If justice takes note of social, environmental, food or marital conditions, then it can't be blind. If it isn't blind, it isn't justice. It's bullshit.

    The term "organic" was defined by Jöns Jacob Berzelius in the year 1806. By his definition -- which is still the one in use today in every chemistry classroom on the entire goddam planet -- all food is organic. If you derive nutrition from eating it, IT'S ORGANIC. Every animal that ever has lived since the beginning of time subsisted entirely on an organic diet. A Big Mac and fries is every bit as organic as anything the birkenstock and deadlock idiots promote.
