    I do not mind lending someone my car. I would have to trust them, and know what kind of driver they are first. If I know they drive well, and have insurance they can use my car anytime.

    How often do you grocery shop?

    I try to grocery shop as little as possible. I have a chest freezer, so between that and my own veggies I can usually get away with only shopping once a month, other than stopping in for milk.
