    With more than enough polls and threads about tithing and giving, this is one about what we do with the rest of our money. 3 questions about how we shop for groceries, household items, and clothes.

    Your question about clothing reflecting personality was a little skewed. It's important to me that my clothes reflect my personality . . . but I don't think I put that above cost.

    How about a poll that takes 2 hours to fill out instead of just one? :eek: :D

    Good poll Alcott! And very interesting...

    Whatever I buy, I am thrifty. I cruise the second-hand shops for clothes and have found some fabulous bargains.

    I primarily do my grocery shopping at Aldi's and buy brand X in all but a few items.

    Those items I buy at another grocery store.

    All of my cleaning supplies come from Wal-Mart unless there is a sale someplace.

    I stock up on food and non-food items when they are on sale (especially meat!).
