I am one of those girls you rarely hear about who doesn’t care for clothes or shoe shopping. If I can walk in, grab three things off the rack without trying them on, pay for them and be back in my car within 12 minutes of entering the mall, I’d do it more often. But I know clothes shopping takes a lot more time and effort than that, and I seriously am not interested. It’s just not my thing.
Shopping for food and food related products however, definitely my thing! When my Mum still lived in Perth, we would spend our Saturday afternoons food shopping. With a trolley each, we’d stroll through the supermarket aisles browsing and chatting while picking up our groceries and weekly incidentals. This habit suited me perfectly – I got to spend quality time with my best friend and shop for food. If however she diverted into a clothes shop, interest dropped from 10 (on a scale of 10) to -4. Just not interested.
Where most girls (I say most, as not many of my friends loathe clothes shopping like I do) would get a thrill out of popping open their boot after a long day at the mall to see mountains of bags full of clothes, shoes, cosmetics and the like, I don’t. I do however find myself smiling at a boot full of edible cargo. A boot full of edible cargo means a full pantry and refrigerator, and that makes me one happy girl.
What do you love carting around in your vehicle? Do you get a kick out of food shopping too? Or are you a shoe-shopping kinda gal/guy?
