No! I do this and the hubby laughs at me all of the time. My goal is mostly to keep all the frozen things together, then the refrigerator items, then fruits, then meats, and bread and eggs last so they end up on top of the cart. You are not alone. I don’t think it’s OCD. I think it’s a sign of intelligence. LOL

Fiance and I both do this! I was pretty pleased when I found out he shared in my compulsion! 🙂

Darling Husband and I both do this, it makes it so much easier when you are unloading everything!

I do this and I am not OCD by any means. It only makes sense. When the 16 yr old is trying to see how quickly he can scan things I dont want my bread being crushed by a gallon of milk!

I do this! I put all the cold stuff together, all the meat together, all the produce together, all the larger bottles (milk, juice) together, etc. I group them how I want them bagged.

I use reusable bags, they are string bags, I try not to be b!tchy, but I’m always “intruding” because the cashiers/sackers don’t know how to use them. Yes, you can put more than 2 items in a bag, they are designed to hold 40 pounds each! Stuff those suckers as full as you can!

(Mine are all different colors!)

@sleepingbeauty88: I miss the south, no one bags your groceries for you in jersey

It’s not a compulsion, it’s normal and sensible – it stops you squashing delicate things/defrosting cold things.

@sleepingbeauty88: Its the exact same setup, there just no one at the end waiting to bag for you and 90% of the time the cashier will relucatantly bag two items.

@sleepingbeauty88: I only get stuff put in bags for me in smaller stores or if they ask if you want them to help you.

I have a system too, but aside from keeping the frozen stuff away from the fruit, its more about prioritizing.  I put the must-haves first, the should-gets second, and the just-wants last.  Then I watch the prices while scanning and make sure I don’t go over budget 🙂
