We have food deserts in our cities. We know that the distance you live from a supplier of fresh produce is one of the best predictors of your health.

It’s like, sometimes I’ll watch a movie, and it’s got some big star in it playing a working-class person, and the character is in a grocery store, and you can kind of tell, from just watching the scene, that this actor doesn’t do their own shopping. So you have to have some sense of reality.

I’ve written in the middle of a conversation or the grocery store or at another band’s concert or in the last moments before falling asleep. It’s pretty unpredictable.

I haven’t always had the money rolling in. I’m a character actor; it’s not like I’m Gwyneth Paltrow – so I do have hard times still in my life.

I live right next to a grocery store and I don’t know if it’s the bachelor in me, but I just go in and shop for what I need for the day. I’m an idiot because I don’t shop for the whole week. The check out clerks always crack jokes about the fact that I’m in there sometimes twice a day.

What’s important at the grocery store is just as important in engines or medical systems.

You don’t get hung up on zeros.
I have to make an effort about things like going to the grocery store. That stuff reminds me that I don’t live in the real world, and you know what? I’m thankful.
I don’t take off my nail polish when I go home because I’m too lazy, and they’re fine with it. Maybe the checkout at the grocery store’s not so great with it, but they’re fine with it.

I’m somebody who, if I went to the grocery store, and one of them wasn’t with me, I would feel guilty. I would be like, ‘I shouldn’t be doing anything without them, anytime, ever.’ A very codependent way of thinking. Also, motherhood is hugely about guilt.

Nice olive oil is fairly easy to find at your standard grocery store, but there are fewer options of nice vinegars.
I think that if you haven’t been to the grocery store in a really long time, it’s really easy to get very out of touch.
It’s about getting the kids up and fed, getting one to school, getting the other down for a nap, going to the grocery store, picking one up from school, getting the other one down for another nap, cooking dinner… I live my life at these two extremes. I’m either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress.
I’ve had to stop going to the nearest grocery store that seems to play Shania Twain’s ‘Forever and For Always’ whenever I’m there. It’s hard to shop for frozen entrees through cold-air blasted tears. Feels good on a flushed face though.
I tend to wear flats and jeans and no makeup and walk around, go to the grocery store, and do whatever I have to do.
I’m not in the clubs; I’m a homebody. I go out when I feel I have to for work or if there’s a special function. You might catch me at the grocery store, but you won’t see me out and about in Atlanta.
When you go to the grocery store, you find that the cheapest calories are the ones that are going to make you the fattest – the added sugars and fats in processed foods.
In Dubai, people respect you if you wear lashes to the grocery store. I’ve been at the gym at 5 in the morning and seen full glam, which, I think working out with your full makeup is just crazy.
It’s typical for people living in nonurban areas to drive 100 miles to go to work, to the grocery store or to the doctor.
I painted my pantry door with Rust-Oleum chalkboard paint months ago because I wanted my kitchen to look like a fancy pub. Working from home has made that chalkboard a necessity. Its where I write my grocery lists and recipe notes and daily to-dos.
I definitely would say, by sixth grade, I was a professional shoplifter – and not because I wanted to. I’m not going out to shoplift earrings or clothes or shoes like the average teenager. I was shoplifting frozen dinners at a grocery store.
I don’t do much cooking because it’s impossible when you travel so much. You go grocery shopping, buy everything, and then get a call to fly out for two weeks. By the time you’re back, all the food is rotten.
