LOL. Do you ever check out what people are buying? I don't always do it on purpose but I do tend to notice. I always look at how much people pay for things (because we try to be frugal) and then I look at what they buy to see if they eat healthy. LOL We eat lots of fruits and veggies. I go to the store every 2 or 3 days because my kids eat everything so fast. But if you looked at my cart I think you'd be able to tell that we eat healthy. I never (or very rarely) buy cookies or chips or junk food. It makes it easier because then I don't have to worry about anyone (myself included) eating too much junk.

I do sometimes, but not usually. However, I often wonder if people are looking at what goes in my cart.

I do occasionally (not on purpose - usually it's when I am waiting in line and bored out of my mind). I'm sure people probably look at my cart and think I feed an army though! I will meal plan and then buy 2-4 weeks of groceries at a time. My cart is usually heaping full (and has even over flowed to a 2nd cart a few times). We do usually have a few things that aren't the healthiest (mostly quick things that DH likes to eat and a little pop).

hmm...sometimes. i shop at a natural food store and i usually notice the people who you can tell shop there for all of their groceries and the people that are there for some odd ingredients they may have needed for something.

I don't while shopping, but will notice when people put their stuff up on the conveyor belt at the register. I really love the ones that buy a bunch of junk and then pay for it with their EBT card...talk about making my blood boil.

Not really. I'm usually just so concerned with my list and making sure that I don't forget anything that I don't look at others carts. I am usually only able to get to the store once a week so I have to make sure that we don't forget anything.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I do, but not on purpose! If someone is there with their kids and a cart full of junk food though, I tend to notice.
