To answer the OP, things I never buy at the supermarket include, but are not limited to: frozen meals, bunches of flowers and non-alcoholic wine. There's probably more but I'm having trouble thinking of them.

I think my list of what I will buy would be shorter!
I never buy:
Prepared anything - no packet mixes, jars, flavour bases, precooked rice.
Frozen food (except peas and icecream)
Meat - get mine from the butcher
Most veges - get mine from the fruit and veg shop
Bread - I prefer the bakery

Any kind of towels or Manchester, prepared sauces, sushi, or salads. Having worked for a major supermarket growing up, I actually don't have any problems with deli or fish dept item- I know which are actually fresh and which are thawed.

Agree, wouldn't buy the air fresheners as well as frankfurts and similar.
I don't buy seafood from the deli. I go to the fish markets. Only exception is packaged smoked salmon/packaged salmon fillets in the perishable section.
I've never bought sewing supplies at a supermarket as I've never needed to.
Don't buy most supermarket branded breads as they use Palm oil. Other more expensive brands don't seem to have it.
I don't buy bottled flavoured water. The sugar content of the flavouring defeats the purpose of drinking water, I might as well have soft drink!

Pet food, because my dogs need super expensive prescription food.
Formula, because both my kids needed super expensive prescription formula (anyone sense a theme here??)
Fresh fish - it never looks any good so on the rare occasion I buy fish, I go to a local shop
I generally buy fresh food and staples but I do stash a few easy/cheat/naughty things away in the pantry on occasion.
