A Shopping Day
Today is Saturday. This is the day when we do the shopping. My mother often takes me with her. We usually have a long shopping list.
First we go to the baker’s to get some bread. Then we buy some milk, butter, sour cream and cottage cheese at the dairy. After that we go to the butcher’s where we buy meat, sausages, steak, ham or bacon.
My favourite place to go is our local market. It is very big and nice. You can buy everything you need there: food, clothes and toys.
The best places to do the shopping in a big city are supermarkets and shopping malls. People can save their time and even have fun there.
