Since I do the weekly review, I can check for anything that doesn't belong there when I do the review. I do have a separate "Buy Someday/Maybe" list since I have a LOT of stuff to buy eventually or maybe, which is On Hold. Then I can move anything from that "Someday/Maybe" list to the actual "Buy" list if I want to buy them soon. Or if OmniFocus gets the ability to pause individual actions, then I'll probably combine those two lists and just pause the items I might maybe get at some point but not yet.
But again, shopping can be included in several projects since all I want to see when I'm actually heading to the store, or with an iPhone once that comes out, when I'm actually AT the store, what I want to see is the Grocery Store list on the contexts side. Contexts after all are among others things, places where you are.
Planning is for exactly that, planning. The context side is for actually doing things listed by what you have access to, like where you are, and there by getting things off the list. That's how I see it and how I work anyway.
