Fill in the blank. For me, it's earbuds! It doesn't matter how much they cost, I'm always tearing them up somehow or another!

Mine is more general, groceries! I do not like grocery shopping. It's not so bad if I'm going in and getting a few specific items, but buying stocked items is a pain.

Ditto on the groceries.

And all types of clothes.... I'm average sized but really busty so even buying t-shirts can be a pain.

Clothes in general. Or most things actually - I hate to shop, period.

Also, cover case for the iPhone. Is it cute... will it last...will it still fit in the speaker dock? My last one didn't and I have to remove it when I want to listen to music at work.

Me too, Sarah! If it is necessities, I always dread it! Everything is super expensive around here, especially food and things like bath tissue and such.
I have trouble finding clothes that fit and look good on me, so I usually do that online.
Now, if I had a blank check and could spend all I wanted in Hobby Lobby, that would be a whole different story!

When we bought our appliances, the refrigerator was the easiest for me. Black, no door water/ice dispenser.

I spent a long time researching what stove to buy.
By the time we were ready to buy, the model I wanted was discontinued!!

Me too Jen.

And jeans. This fashion for super-skinnies can't end quickly enough for me. I'm not over-weight, but I possess a waist, a bottom and leg muscles. If the wretched things will pull up over my thighs and bottom without causing life-threatening circulation restrictions, there's a 4" gap at the back of the waist.

lol at Rosey's problem with jeans! I am short and can never find any that fit right in the behind and waist and are not made for giraffes! And I hate they all have spandex now! On the rare occasion I find a pair that fits by the end of wearing them one day they have stretched and make me look like the guys who wear their's with half of their bottom hanging out! I don't see how they can deliberately wear them that way! So uncomfortable!

Buying bras...I am busty and short. And they never make cute ones for busty people. I hate buying the granny bras with the thick straps in only black, taupe or white. And don't even get me started on sport bras...they are the worst! I still haven't found one where I don't have to wear my regular bra under.

I hate having to shop for anything specific. I was just recently trying to find my granddaughter a white cardigan type sweater to wear over her dress for Easter tomorrow. Things sound so easy to find then when u go looking, it is like finding a needle in a haystack. Not to mention the store to store and getting in and out at every store.

Shoes. I love cute shoes but cute shoes don't like my feet. They kill me.

But I do buy very nice sandals and Echo walking shoes but I hate to wear new shoes for fear I will get them dirty and they won't be nice anymore.

I bought a nice pair of walking shoes a year and a half ago. Since I paid $130 I wouldn't wear them and get them dirty. I wore them for the first time last month and I won't go anywhere that could get them dirty.

They are in my suitcase on this trip. No guarantees I will wear them though.

I've always hated messing up new shoes that I love.

So I hate shopping for them and buying them.

I'm the same way about shoes getting dirty, Henri... but it doesn't stop be from buying them! LOL I own a ridiculous amount of shoes.

I hate buying necessities too. It's no fun spending money on toilet paper, hand soap, etc.

Yes, yes, and yes!!!


I think it's the Murphy's Law of shopping. You'll see something all over, then when you decide you want/need it, it's impossible to find.


I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one with this problem.
