"I Don't Go Shopping" is a song written by Peter Allen and David Lasley that was recorded and released by singer Patti LaBelle in 1980 on the Epic label. It was the second single off her fourth Epic album, Released.

After its release, the song became only a minor hit on the R&B charts, peaking at a modest number 26 on the Hot Soul Singles chart, while failing to enter the Billboard Hot 100, in early 1981. After releasing the song, LaBelle would be released from her Epic contract and go on to sign with Philadelphia International Records.

LaBelle has only performed the song sporadically in the years since the early eighties.
