  • how often do you go to the grocery store?

    I try to only go once a week, to two different stores. One is Aldi on tuesday, and the other is a large fruit and vege shop, with a huge butcher next door

    For major trip to get a lot of groceries, 1-2 times a week.
    For little things, 2-3 times a week.

    But that also depends on if i'm craving a Starbucks, which they have there.

        bread and milk I have to get every few days, but I try to get that at the corner store. It costs more there, but if I go into the market, I don't come out with less than $50 worth, even though I only "need" bread and milk LOL

          My hubby goes several times a week. We never just do a BIG trip (our kids are grown), but, we get what we need at tht time. If we get too much, we never eat it and end up tossing a lot.

            OK we do MAJOR grocery shopping once every 2 weeks (on pay day).. and it seems wayne is going to the grocery store every 2 or 3 days for things we seem to run out of.. like milk, and bread, etc

              I do a big trip every two weeks, but I stop and pick up produce and stuff that needs to be fresh between major trips.

                I usually got every 2 weeks, sometimes 3. It's just me so everything lasts longer.

                  A little tip that I learned from a book called "America's Cheapest Family Gets You Right on the Money":
                  Well, they say go once a month, but that is not possible for me. One thing I did take away from it is to go every two weeks, and eat the produce in the order it would go bad- i.e. bananas, then pears, and apples last a long time, so they're last. Although, since I have a 14 mo who LOVES bananas, and doesn't have enough teeth to eat apples, I still end up going on the off-week to get more bananas. But it's a good tip, nonetheless.

                  ETA: If you have a big freezer, you can also buy extra milk, pour a little off the top of each one, and freeze them. They defrost fine with no change in consistency in my experience. When you start running a little low on the current gallon or whatever, just pull out the new one and put it in the sink with some water for a few hours.

                  You can freeze bread too, just be careful not to smoosh it. When you're running low on the current loaf, just set the new one out on the counter, and it will be ready to go in a few hours!

                          I try to go every week but I usually buy enough for 2 to 3 weeks. I spend the same anyway. Trader Joe's in once a more or 6 weeks or so - until I forget just how horrible the parking and layout of the store is. (Or until I get a craving!)
                          If I go more often, I just buy more stuff I don't need, so I don't let myself go.

                          Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                          And I can tell you 'bout today
                          And how I picked you up and everything changed
                          It was pain
                          Sunny days and rain
                          I knew you'd feel the same things...

                            Every other week. We do a Trader Joes stop and a stop at either Albertson's or Vons. We get some things from Costco once a month

                              Same for us, we do big shopping every two weeks but usually need to get some stuff in between. We buy (and go though) almost 2 gallons of milk every week.
