Share Your World

Di, at Pensitivity101, is our host for Share Your World each week. Here are her SYW questions for this week, where she wants to know about our shopping habits.

  1. When food shopping, do you go with a list and stick to it, or buy on the hop? I type out a list on my iPhone and pretty much go by that list and stick to it. I will, upon occasion, make an impulse purchase, but that is the exception. Note that since I busted my hip last month, all of my grocery shopping has been done using either the Safeway or the Whole Foods Market apps for delivery to my doorstep.
  2. When clothes shopping, do you prefer to shop in a store or buy mail order? I buy almost everything online, including clothes.
  3. Do you like shopping for shoes? No, because I have narrow feet and it’s hard to find good fitting shoes. But I also buy my shoes online and most online shoe merchants have generous return policies, so I might buy three different sizes of the same shoe and keep the one pair that fits and return the other two.
  4. Do you enjoy shopping alone or with friends/partner? As I mentioned before, I do all my shopping online using my iPhone. If I’m buying something online I may hand my iPhone to my wife and ask her what she thinks of an item, but it’s mostly a solo activity for me.


I am slowly but surely recuperating from my busted hip and broken humerus. I am hoping that by the middle of March I’ll be able to ditch the walker and get by with a cane and that maybe by May, with ongoing physical therapy, I’ll be close to back to normal. And I am continuing to be grateful to my wife for being by my side and helping me through all of this.

    We also write a list and follow it, but often see things on sale, especially in the poultry and meat areas. We will substitute one thing for another when one thing is substantially less expensive than another. I buy ALL my spices online, though because they are much less costly — like half the price or even less.
