Had to go to the grocery store. Other than that, it's #1 for me.

Laura Eno said...

Definitely #1. Years ago I worked in retail during a few Christmases, now I'm allergic to malls.

The one I follow is Stay Home. I don't even like to shop on regular days. I'm avoided all stores today, even the grocery store!

Great minds - all of us. I have to go to the post office, but I keep putting it off.

I'm also a #1 devotee! I prefer to wait for no crowd days even if I have to settle for “what’s left!”

Conda V. Douglas said...

#1 works for me, too! I hate to shop and there's always on line!

Carol Kilgore said...

Maybe it's a writer thing. I finally went to the post office. No line! But when I left there was.

Brilliant. I vote for #1.

Comfortable shoes are a must. Great list.

Definitely #1 for me too. But I had to be in town and everyone was just standing in the MIDDLE of the aisle and would look at you like you were crazy for wanting to go down that aisle.

Carol Kilgore said...

Thanks. I hate when my feet hurt. And why does everyone congregate in the middle of aisles? Doesn't matter how wide the aisle is. I'm afraid I'm probably guilty of doing that, too.
