Hardkore has inspired me to resurrect the Dumb Kwestion thread, with his fantastic Christmas Kwestion discussion.
I can't promise that I will remember to do this every week, but I have a list of about 20 silly questions that would probably work pretty good for the limited intelligence of this lot (just kidding it's more like 25 questions..... Laughing....you know I'm just pulling your leg, nobody here has a grossly limited intellect.  I'll wait a minute while some of you look up the meanings to some of those words).

So here is another Dumb Kwestion for us to ponder, comment on, and question the intelligence of the dope who presented it. geek

What store do you shop at the most?

If you shop online feel free to include that as well.

My most visited store would be Walmart.  Online it would be Amazon.  While I could probably shop around more to save money, I can find most everything I want with those two choices.  Well, clothing I have to shop elsewhere as they don't carry my sizes most of the time at Walmart.

Since I work at a Walmart I do my shopping after I get off work. Sometimes I even do a bit of my shopping at their website. Then I just pick up the stuff either on lunch break or after I get off.

When I'm at school, I buy my groceries from Maxi, which is sort of a no-frills, no-name brand-touting store. Their food is generally the cheapest, although the fresh grocery isn't great. If I'm just looking for one or two things, I walk to the nearest store, Provigo, which is a Loblaws affiliate. For car things, I'll go to Carquest for parts and Canadian Tire for supplies. I don't do that much shopping otherwise.

Unfortunately, Walmart. Like Alldat, Amazon for online stuff. Winn Dixie is still shutdown from the hurricane so we have to buy groceries at Walmart as well unless we want to drive across town to Publix. Target and Kohl's are closed as well. We like to buy clothes at Kohl's and occasionally Sears but it (and the mall) are shutdown after the storm and they will not reopen either (which is odd because Dillard's is open and JC Penney will reopen but the mall will not).

Pay Less (Kroger owned stores in central Indiana).  Also Amazon.  Yeah, I know we are supposed to support local mom & pops over the big corporate bullies, but apparently my principles have run into the buzzsaw of practical economics.

According to my checkbook I spend most of my time in our local Safeway.  I actually kind of despise the store because a third of the time I go there to get something they don't have it (seriously how do you run a large grocery store but have empty spaces on some of the shelves, it's bewildering and frustrating).
Online the vast majority of my shopping is from Amazon (you just can't beat their selection).

Countdown...the local grocery store. There's another grocery store that's a couple blocks closer to my house, but I avoid it like the plague because it's set up so that you have to go through fruit and veg to get to meat and then through meat to get to dairy and then through dairy to get to bread. I just feel too much like cattle in that store so despite it being a little bit cheaper on some items, I just don't go there. Life's too short to be made to feel like livestock.   🐮

Jeanswest for jeans (it's the only store in town that stocks "long") and Savemart (second hand store) for other clothes. Not a big shopper. If only I could get away with never shopping again....    scratch

I go to the grocery store the most.
For the rest I avoid shopping as much as I can.

Does anyone get their clothing online?
I've have had the worst time getting online clothing to fit me properly so I almost never do it.  I always seem to buy my clothes from a physical store so I can try on the stuff.  I seem to get most of my clothes (pants, nice shirts, shorts, underwear) from JCPenny with a lot of my t-shirts and sweatpants from Walmart.

Will buy shoes online and sometimes t-shirts but rarely buy clothes... That reminds me, I did buy some jeans from Texas Jeans on their website, very good jeans and took a risk for buying without knowing how they would fit but they fit good and they are made in USA. My work boots i buy online because they are cheaper. I try them on in the store then buy them online (Thorogood boots, also made in USA). And good ole Chuck Taylor Converse All Stars I will buy online but most clothes come from a store. I like to try stuff on as well.

We have got to the point where we even buy our cat food from Amazon because it is cheaper than Petsmart.

I would certainly buy clothes online if I could try that brand on in a store...and the brand reliably made the same size.  There just seems to be a disconnect with dimensions on jeans and manufacturers.  I have had 3 or 4 pairs of jeans that claim to be the same size and all fit different (even the length, not just the waist size).

We buy our pet food from chewy.com.  If we buy about a month and half's worth at once we get free shipping.  Tried to buy it from Amazon but the brand we needed was actually more expensive there.

In order of most visited/used stores for me:

1. Stater Brothers (pretty much every other day)
2. Wal-Mart (at least once a week)
3. Amazon (average about 4 purchases per month - things we can't get locally)

Try to avoid online purchases if possible, cuz if a return is needed it's a pain in the neck.

The advantage(? perhaps DISadvantage financially) is that Staters and WM are both 5 minutes from my house.

For clothes, we go out of town to the Mall and/or Target. For appliances, Home Depot. Once every other month I do a Costco shopping for all the bulk crap we need. That's pretty much everything, except for random online stores I buy music from occasionally [Roxx, Boones, ebay, Discogs, etc]

I do the bulk stuff at Costco too.  I used to go every month when we had kids in the house, now it seems like I go 2 out of every 3 months.

Costco is something we don't have here. I've been to one in Canada before, but other than that, we don't have a bulk buy place here (that I know of). I remember the store had huge vats of mustard and ketchup. If not condiments, what does one buy in bulk anyway?

Jen, for large families, things like paper towels, toilet paper, toothpaste, etc. that you use all the time are good to buy in quantities.  You also have to have the storage space.  I lviving in a small, two bedroom house, so buying in bulk is something my wife and I can't really do.

We only have one kid living at home so we don't go there nearly as often anymore but here is a typical Costco list for me (not that I buy everything each time I go).

Laundry soap (it's like a one gallon jug)
Fabric softener (again a one gallon jug)
Aluminium foil (three boxes in a package)
Parchment paper (two large boxes in one package)
Toilet Paper (something like 30 rolls in a package)
Paper Towels (I think 16 in a package)
Chicken/Beef (usually two whole fryers in one package or a 6lb pacakages of breast etc....I spend 45 minutes or so seperating them into meal size portions and freezing them)
Vegan Protein Powder (huge 30 serving container....lasts me about a month and a half)
Dishwasher pods (package of 90....last more than three months)
Kitchen or Lawn sized Garbage bags (something like 100 in a box)
Also bulk spices, and sometimes vitamens or supplements.

A lot of that stuff last us several months between purchases.  You can also buy electronics there (usually at a reduced rate).  I bought my wife's HP laptop there last year, and we used some Christmas money to by a new Gopro Hero 7 camera for under $200.

What I do NOT buy is fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, bread or dairy.  We can't use that stuff fast enough to buy it in bulk.
