How do you use your Shopping List?

What it says above.

I add any tea I read about in a Tealog that sounds yummy or interesting. So more a list of things I might want to try than things I plan to buy.

same here! it’s more of a “wish list” than a shopping list for me.

I do actually use it as a shopping list; anything that I read about that I want to buy I put on there, then when it’s time to make an order (like with the Rishi coupon!) I can just go to the shopping list and find all of the Rishi stuff, stick that in my shopping cart, and hit the buy button. Easy!

Btw, what did you buy in your Rishi order?

Heh. I’m a DORK, so I already moved them from my shopping list to my cupboard. :-)

The Pu-erh sampler (I’ve never tried Pu-erh!)
Tropical Crimson Iced Tea
Citron Oolong
Lychee Red
Tangerine Ginger

Also 2 storage tins and the iced tea pitcher (we’ve needed a pitcher and I liked that one).

The last 3 sound AMAZING iced!

@denisend: I’ve never tried pu-erh before either so I’m interested to hear what you think of it. The Citron Oolong sounds yummy.

It’s not an urgent shopping list for me, but it is a collection of things that sound interesting and that I hope someday to try. :)

I’m using it as a shopping list, but also as a list I can share with folks who are looking for something to get me for the holidays. :)

I have not purchased anything fm the shopping list as of yet but I will in the future…these are teas that I have found that I enjoyed the tea reviews and my interest has been sparked.

As I have the feeble memory of a middle aged woman, I actually use the shopping list to remind me what to buy next. There are a few teas on there that I haven’t gotten around to ordering yet, but that’s because I am reluctant to place a mail order for just one tea. I’m looking for a few others to order with them.

Yeah definitely bumps up the total cost of the tea- it’s better to spilt the cost of shipping (if you don’t qualify for free) among several items. What about purchasing gifts and then that tea for yourself?

I’m using my shopping list as a wishlist. I may or may not buy or try it in the future.

I agree oOTeaOo and the earlier Steepers; I plan to use it as a wish list. That way, when I’m lured by the evil tea vendors, I will check my list and stop buying when I’ve reached my limit and/or the ones that have been discussed here.

I’ve pretty much ignored the shopping list so far. Most of the teas that I see people log are difficult at best for me to get.
I’ve considered using it as a wishlist, though, like oOTeaOo does, but I haven’t got around to it yet.

My new answer to this is simply “too much!” LOL=D
