1. Do you shop locally?

2. How much shopping do you do online?

3. Do you antique, thrift shop, or go to flea markets or yard sales?

<<I don't think it is the worry about how it is going to taste but the enjoyment of certain things. While some things are not quality (per say Doritos or Potato Chips), sometimes they just taste so good (references to others who said they do not leave them in their houses as they will eat the entire bag lol).>>

But you can find quality products that taste even better.  I like a good potato chip, there is this new brand that I found that is imported from England because frankly, they make THE BEST chips or rather crisps.   So yes, even quality makes a difference in potato chips, imo.  I think we have about 3 different kinds of potato chips at home currently.  

Can't stand Doritos, blech.  

Found them - https://www.tyrrellscrisps.co.uk/    OMG, major good chips.

1. Do you shop locally?

Yes, for food and clothes, but not the local ~ going to buy some fresh eggs trip.  We still have a few farms nearby.  But I've been able to come to terms with trusting labels at the grocery store.  It can take a few trips to various stores, but I'm usually okay with organic.  I read ingredients and try, try to buy mostly whole foods.

2. How much shopping do you do online?

It depends.  If there's a worthwhile sale at a store I trust and I have a coupon, I'll definitely shop online.  Other times, it's a frantic, the kid needs a _______.  Or OMG, it's already summer.  Online is very tempting and too easy.  I often order the wrong sizes.

I bought this in the wrong size

Tadashi Shoji Textured Lace Dress

and now I have to eat this

3. Do you antique, thrift shop, or go to flea markets or yard sales?

No, I wouldn't know what's a bargain or even a fair price for antiques.  Thrift stores and yard sales are for people who need used items more than I do.

Thardy I LOVE that dress. I saw that when looking for a dress for a wedding this summer. I don't mind eating salad (and have done so for a month for lunch-protein in it too though so not just lettuce lol) to fit into something though lol.

They look similiar to the kettle chips I get from Costco. Not sure why I would go and order them from England (if that is what you actually do as I don't see anything on the site to order the chips).

Really.  What size are you?  ;)

I thought that photo was funny because it's actually a one-inch salad!  Well, that dress looks really, really good on a hanger. Smile

You might be able to find a version in Trader Joes or snack store.  I'm actually not a chip and cracker person.
