We have online ordering. It's easy not to pick up extra items when you don't have to walk into the store.

I only buy what I need. My Condo has limited space and I don't like clutter.

Pretty much when we're making major planned shopping runs. Maybe there are a thing or two I remember that did not make the list, or sales too good to pass up, but generally we avoid impulse buys.

I do get the list items, but NEVER come out with JUST the list! There is always a good sale!

There may be a new product I would like to try. I list the most important things, but there may be other items on sale or that look appealing.

There is always something I pick up that isn't on the list.

I always remember something I need not on my list and great sales entice me.

I pretty much stick to my list but leave room for additional items I might find on sale.

Guess I like the freedom of getting whatever I want. I am single so I can do this.

I get what’s on the list and good value sale items. Never know when you’ll be broke and can access the supply for the lean times.

I sometimes find something that is not on my list that I really need.

I usually find something I need that isn't on my list, or I want to try something.

No grocery list is ever complete until AFTER you go to the grocery store.
