Question of the day.

Hi hi guys! 🙂

Today I have the following question for you:

Who taught you to go grocery shopping?

My answer:

I don’t think anyone taught me to do that specifically, like “Come on, I’ll teach you how to do grocery shopping”. I often assisted either of my parents when they were doing the grocery shopping when I was a small child, and actually throughout my childhood and adolescence when I was home for longer. I believe we must have had some learning to grocery shop at the boarding school, or maybe I had that at any of the independent living skills classes when I was little, but I can’t remember anything like that at the moment. Then when I got my debit card and all that my Mum taught me how to use it and showed me in more detail how to do shopping at a grocery store. On a daily basis, I hardly ever need any special grocery items just for myself, and it’s usually my Dad or Mum who does groceries for all of us including Olek and me, but if I do need something extra, I either tell them or get it online. When I’m in need of larger shopping, I do it normally online too, or if there is an opportunity or I’d rather get something physically and see in what condition it is or need something from a local shop we do it together with Mum. But while I’m pretty confident with it at the moment when she’s assisting me, I wouldn’t be able to do it by myself.

You? 🙂

Question of the day.

Where do you shop for your groceries? Do you like food shopping, at all?

My answer:

Most often, one of my parents buy my groceries. They buy things for all of us and if I want anything particular then I just give them money and they get it for me when they go grocery shopping. Usually if my Dad is at home then he is doing grocery shopping. Because it seems like he likes it. We usually shop in our local shops, or in Lidl, or another chain of shops which is Polish and called Biedronka, which means Ladybug. Also I buy some food online from time to time, but it’s more like snacks or stuff that’s not available here in the area, or if I want to make a present for someone. I pretty often do online shopping in Tesco.

As for whether I like food shopping, I certainly like it more than clothes shopping. It’s not something I’d love, but I like it, unless it’s not too crowdy.

How about you? Do you like food shopping? 🙂

Question of the day.

Do you ever use the self-checkout whe you go grocery shopping? Do you use your own bags?

My answer:

As for the self-checkout, it really depends. We have a few small grocery stores in my area, and in most of them there is no self-checkout. If there is any or if we grocery shop in a bigger store, we usually use it, but it’s not a rule or anything.

As for the bags, no, we don’t use our own for groceries.

How about you? 🙂
