Do you and your SO go shopping together?

If we\'re just shopping for the house or clothes, then yes, we almost always do it together. But I prefer to do my grocery shopping alone. I don\'t just prefer, I demand to do it alone. I hate it when DH is with me when I\'m grocery shopping. Just because he lives here doesn\'t mean he knows what we need, have and want. He always buts in and says...."Don\'t we have some of that already?"....."Why are you buying the generic brand?". OMG I could kill him when he does that!!

So how about you? Do you prefer to go it alone or together?

My husband waits in the car while I shop....haha...he hates shopping. He would rather wait in the parking lot for hours then shop.....which is fine by me!!

We do go shopping together.. if i'm not really shopping.. He hates to shop.. he likes to go, get what he came for and leave.. which is fine by me if I'm not really shopping... Like a trip to walmart..

If I'm going to the mall or I need something for me.. I won't go with him because he makes me feel rushed and he complains Geez you take long enough!!!

So its a little mix of both..

Alone! DH drives me crazy at the mall or grocery store. Hes got the "run in get what you need dont look at anything else and run to the cash" mentality. And me? Im the "stop and look at all the sales and browse" type girl

My husband and I go everywhere togethere. I know that probably sounds wierd to some of you. I do not drive and we live in the country at the present time so he takes me where I need to go.
But even when we lived in the city and I liked to walk places, we still went together.
When I met my husband 4 years ago I was having problems with my ex stalking me. I didn't feel safe being alone, so that is kind of how it started being this way. We both enjoy being with one another. Even if he has to go somewhere, he'll ask me if I want to ride along.
My husband works from home, so we are always together.

I get up in the morning a few hours before he does so that is my alone time and I spend it online LOL. I don't get to use the computer much after he gets up because he has work to do, but I sneak on once in a while.

If I am shopping for clothes/household items, then he just goes to another part of the store to browse something more interesting to him. If it is grocery shopping he usually waits in the car. I hate it when he wants to grocery shop with me. He always goes over the budget, and he buys too much junk food.

Sometimes it depends on what kinds of shopping. He won't go with me if i am going clothes shopping. I won't go with him if he is going to the hardware store. We both tell each other that we take to long.

It really depends. I do most of the shopping by myself, but thats usually because DH is at work... if he's home and there are some errands to be done, he will sometimes go... it depends on where I'm going.

Me and my DH do all of our shopping together. I have to be with him when he buys clothes to help him pick things out. And, I HAVE to have him with me to do the grocery shopping.

We go together unless it's for clothes... I can't take him clothes shopping he is so not picky at all. He likes everything and doesn't see a point in thinking about it or looking it over. All clothes look great just buy some.

Yes me and my SO go shopping together even though he is like a little child and picky in the grocery store.When i go in to the store I get waht I need on my list then I am ready to get out of there. But when So goes we end up with more than I had on list and sometimes it is junk. I am glad when it comes to shopping for other things he ramains quite LOL.

We shop together and it is more enjoyable that way. I've gone grocery shopping a couple times when he's at work, but it's such a pain. It's so much easier to have him there with me. I never shop with a list, so it's nice to have him there to remind me of things we need.

He is an awesome shopper when we go to the mall, so I definately take him with me.
