VLOG: The Man Rants On Being Allowed to Grocery Shop Alone

Share the Love

Ladies, my husband once again feels he has something very important to say on behalf of husbands worldwide. Watch him rant about why it frustrates him that I refuse to allow him to grocery shop alone. In my defense, you should know that I’ve given him amply chances to come home with apples instead of Kettle Corn potato chips, and still he’s failed me. Watch and decide for yourself — If you take his side on this one I’ll love you anyway, promise! (P.S. There’s a poll below, too!)

    I get panicky feeling just thinking about sending my husband into the store alone! He would come up with junk food and spend way too much money. :)

    My husband only goes shopping alone if he is getting something for himself or I give him a list of just a few items. I have taken him family shopping with me before and I think we end up spending $100 more because he want's to extra of everything and stuff we just don't need.

    I have sent mines and well lets just say its best if I go myself. The other day I sent him to the store for 5 items he called me a total of 5 times to ask me what to get. I told him to write it down he claimed he could remember but yet he still called me. I am very picky when it comes to the items I buy at the store so if I send him he will come back with duke mayonnaise instead of helmans.

    This post is right on time. I just had a conversation with my husband to explain why he can't go grocery shopping with me. He does not understand the concept of budgeting and whenever he goes shopping with me we end up with too much junk. When I'm not looking he adds juice, cookies, chips, and anything else that we don't need. After reading the other comments this seems to be a common theme with men. I wonder if this is a generational thing…my daddy always did the shopping when I was growing up and we had real food!

    LOL! Too funny! My hubby is not allowed to go with or without me. The one time I let him go alone he spent a ton of money on absolutely nothing but a bunch of junk. I also don't like for him to go with me b/c he keeps adding 152 million things into the cart that isn't on the list…he's worse then our kids lol.

  7. Flo says:

    Wow! I guess I'm the odd woman out on this one…lol! My husband does a good job at the grocery store! I'm cool when he goes grocery shopping.

  8. I'll let my husband go grocery shopping…when I want the bill to be about four times what I would spend. Lol.
    My recent post Because I have nothing better to do

  9. nylse says:

    i dont mind it at all – its one less thing for me to do. he shops differently than i do, but i've schooled him on coupons and sales so he does all right. at least when he shops, i wont need to shop for a while – he shops like the end is near!

  10. The Student says:

    Lean Cuisine pizzas. LOL! You guys are too funny. Okay, message for The Man…you just got yourself in trouble cause if you come back from you next grocery store run without stuff The Wife likes you will never hear the end of it. Why did you do that to yourself buddy? LOL!

    My husband always goes to the story by himself. This is mostly because I am like the typical man (although I am a woman) who runs in, gets what is needed and gets out. I'm a wife and I hate going to the grocery store! It doesn't matter if I'm alone or with other people. I just think I'm allergic or something… There is probably nothing I hate more. Unfortunately (and probably as punishment) when my hubby goes to the store, he never gets what I like so…I eat out.

    You and your husband are so cute. I sadly do not have a real S.O. so I do all my shopping but I doubt highly that my man would know or remember to buy low fat vanilla soy milk, as opposed to regular any ole milk, or w.w. pasta as opposed to regular pasta. Or to get lean mince as opposed to regular fat-ridden mince. The list goes on and on. I have no faith in men but we must always give them a few chances to prove us right…sorry…prove us wrong. lol. Gonna share this on my FB page. Too funny.
    My recent post The Week That Was

  12. I had to crack up when I saw this post because I thought I was the only one who got nervous about my man going to the store alone. He at least offers and I've only trusted him to do it when I couldn't do it after having our son. You don't even want to know what all he came back with! Lol!

  13. Beth says:

    I HATE when my man grocery shops but for other reasons. (1.) He is the sole breadwinner right now so he's really tight with a buck. So much so that if it's on sale he buys tons of it, even if it's something I'll never use/eat. His rational is if it's on sale I can figure out a way to use it. Since he eats just about anything he justifies this rationale. (2.) If it's NOT on sale, I can't have it. ME: But honey, I need mozzarella cheese and tomatoes for my salad. HIM: It's not on sale this week, make something else.

  14. Beth says:

    (3.) I have OCD. I am very organized. I use coupons, make a list and navigate the store in an orderly fashion, only hitting the aisles I need to. He is ADHD. He is VERY disorganized. He's one of those people we all bitch about. He rushes aimlessly all over the store as items pop into his head. He leaves his cart unattended in the middle of the aisles while he runs off to the other side of the store to get something he forgot to pick up when he was on that side of the store the first four times. Then come the check out line… He is very impatient and hops from line to line trying to find the quickest line, which usually results in us winding up in the slowest line.
    I cannot shop WITH him, but when he shops alone, I always have to go back and get what I need myself. It's a waste of time and money in the long run, but that's the way he likes it. Did I mention he's a control freak?

    This is interesting..My husband and I grocery shop together and I love it. He does all the cooking so he knows what he likes to cook and I generally eat it. I wouldn't hesitate to send him to the store alone!
    My recent post The Daily

  16. John says:

    Apparently I live in a different world than all you. Due to work scheduling I do all the dinner cooking, and as a result am more sensitive to what actually works in stocking the larder. My wife, with the exception of kid snacks, ALWAYS ends up buying to much of something that has a limited shelf life, or some other weird thing that fits into none of what we normally eat.

    OK, a culinary challenge is a good thing, but it underlines the point that whoever does the primary cooking knows better what's going on, regardless of sex. Mean time I'm glad she gets the snack foods. Kids change their minds on that all the time and I don't have the mental headspace to keep up with that.
