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?

<<So I guess you mean you like them for the taste and not neccessarily for the nutrition.>>

Well yes, since that what I said multiple times now.  Where is the confusion?   YO, they are chips, lol.

<<If you're speaking of the local grocer I think you're speaking of (one that's been significantly busier than the other recently?)--their whole food section has been a life saver for me w/the FA thing. Saves me the trip to Whole Foods--the only thing I can't get there is Tofurky pizza. But I can buy their pizza dough in the refridgerated case & some Daiya cheese shreds and make it myself. So NBD. ;)>>

Yes, that would be the one!  They have a great selection, I thought about taking savcal there the last time she was here to show her my world of groceries but since she has to settle for WM, I thought that would be cruel.

1. The majority of my shopping is local.  By that I do not mean just small local stores.  I also shop some of the big chain stores but ones located in my city rather than neighboring cities so my gets  the sales tax as much as possible.  

2. Not a whole lot.  Our family does have a bit of a Amazon obsession.  But that usually comes out at holidays.   I am waiting now for a purse I bought from them with a gift card my DD1 got me for my birthday.   I buy some things on Barnes and Noble to download on my tablet.  A lot of online shopping is for things I cannot get locally.

3. I do sometimes thrift shop.  I got some work shorts from Goodwill a few weeks ago.

<<I don't really like chips, but occasionally DH comes home w/some artisanal vinegar and pepper chips that are delicious. But I can't tell you I've read the nutrition info on them. They're chips. They're crap nutritionally. I don't need to read the label to know that...>>

I love good salt and vinegar chips!  I would love to know the brand if you want to shoot me a pm on facebook if you remember the name?

I don't know, I'm not sure I agree that it's not a normal thing but do you think the opposite could also not be a normal thing, always wanting to eat?

For growing kids yeah lol. I guess I should say that I don't "always wanting to eat" but I do look forward to what I am eating and I always want to hear what others have had to eat (especially if they go out to a function or whatever).

It's pretty, isn't it?  With spring and soon summer, there are so many kinds of dresses out there it's hard to buy just a few new ones. ;)

Oh, and I'm in the never skipped a meal club.  I'm pretty good at not eating between meals.  I've known people like you who forget to eat a meal and I just can't imagine that!

I don't think Lauren had said her feelings about the eating process has affected her life in any way. If her aversion actually led her to avoid eating to the point of un healthiness, then she might. But it doesn't. She eats normally. So why bring in a doctor?

<<Oh, ok so you are going by taste and not actual Nutrition. Have you ever compared Lays to Tyrells?>>

Of course I'm going by taste and not actual nutrition, again they are potato chips, lol.  And yes, as I said in my post, I would rather have a Tyrells than a Lay's any old day, better quality equals better taste to me.  I can't think of any food where better quality ingredients and process of cooking doesn't equal a better product, can you?

I don't order them from England, they are in the local grocery store.  They are yummy, try them if you see them some time.   

I will. Thanks :)

WHO eats chips for the nutrition?

On Wednesdays we wear pink.
