Game of Groans: Food Shopping

Think about an object, an activity, or a cultural phenomenon you really don’t like. Now write a post (tongue-in-cheek or not – your call) about why it’s the best thing ever.

Food shopping is one of the most completely boring and mind-numbing experiences that I have to do every week.


I often forget how lucky I am to be able to afford to buy my own food.  There are many different shops within a reasonable distance to my house, and I am free to choose which of them I will go to each week. I don’t have to walk for hours to get to my shops  – my local supermarket is a quick 10-minute walk from my doorstep. I am also spoilt for choice when it comes to the meat, vegetables, fruits and even milk I can buy.  I am able to just buy my food. I don’t have to go out and catch or harvest my food. I just have to drive or walk into any supermarket and pick out what I want. The products are carefully prepared, packed and laid out in shelves that are labelled. I am spoiled.

Despite the ever-increasing prices of goods and the boring nature of food shopping, I really should stop moaning.
