About This Quiz

Are you the kind of person who has a plan of attack, or do you just wing it? Maybe you fall somewhere in between! There is no right or wrong way to do the grocery store shopping, whether you're going to pick up just a few things or get your haul for the entire week. Maybe you started out really enthusiastic and excited about being in control at the food store and not having to ask your mom if you can have things. But eventually that excitement wears off when you realize you're also the one who has to pay for the stuff.

Keep the excitement alive, though! Did you know most grocery stores have a free tasting policy? If you want to taste something, take it to an employee and let them know and they'll open it for you right then and there so you can sample before you buy. How cool is that? If you already know exactly what you're going into the food store for and there's no straying from the list, then keep doing you because you're more organized than most, and that's probably fun for you! See? No wrong way to do the grocery store.
