Shop Daily

In this discussion of biking/shopping/delivery I was struck by someone's observation that the only way to shop on a bike is if you do daily shopping. I was struck by it because while I don't own a bike - I walk (3 blocks to decent urban market, 7 to Whole Foods and large Super Fresh) - we do basically shop almost every day that we cook a meal, at least any meal that doesn't involve the microwave or a heavy dependence on canned products.

Anyway, no major point here, just that being carless really fundamentally alters your relation to the space around you.

Of course, being carless gets a bit easier every day because Philly Car Share seems to be taking over the city. Can't spit without hitting one these days.
