Do the Shopping

In the example I gave, I said the following:

“Hello, this is Jack from To Fluency. I’m just about to do the shopping. How often do you do the shopping? Let me know!”

I used this phrase because I was just about to enter the supermarket and buy some food.

When talking about buying food, we tend to use this phrase. When talking about shopping in general, it’s more common to use the phrase, “go shopping.”

  • “We need to do the shopping today.”
  • “Let’s go shopping this afternoon.”
  • “I always do the shopping at the weekend.”

What to Do Now:

1. Answer the following question: How often do you do the shopping?
