    Grocery shopping?

    Hey everybody!

    How often do you go grocery shopping? I personally usually only go once about every two weeks, but since the new quarter just started up I've been going a lot more often than usual. My pantry and section of the fridge were almost entirely empty, and the apartment was sorely lacking in supplies. So now I've gone on about four separate shopping trips, all in the past week.

    So, how about you? How often do you go grocery shopping? Do you usually go alone, or is it a partner/group thing?

    All the best,
    Matt

    Hey Matt!

    I usually go grocery shopping every week and a half. I usually go alone because sometimes I get impatient with waiting for the other person to finish. I go into the grocery store knowing what I want, while the other person, most of the time, kind of just wanders around looking at things.

    I typically do a big grocery run once a week, and another mini one in the same week. I like to buy a lot of fresh foods that don't last very long. I also like to only buy what I know I will eat in that week, in order to be sure I don't waste anything and stay within my monthly food budget.

    I do similarly to bluesapphire7. I go twice a week: one big trip getting most things that I'll need for the week, and a quick mini-trip midway through the week. This allows me to pick up anything I missed, anything else that comes up that I may need, or just to restock on fresh foods! Most of the time I go with my partner, but sometimes we're only able to go solo but still do pretty well coordinating with one another on what to get!

    I find as I get older I end up going to the grocery store more (booooo). Usually I end up going twice a week minimum, and sometimes as much as four times in a week depending on what I'm cooking and need to grab. Partly I think this happens because I'm not a list person at all and when I go I usually end up forgetting something crucial and have to go back a day or two later. Also, I've been trying to be a lot more money conscious and healthy, so I find that I only get the amount of food I know I am going to eat, and usually will have to go back part way through the week to pick up a few more things like bananas and such. My boyfriend and I go together once a week if we can, and then I go by myself after work once or twice a week to pick up the small things.

    Best,

    My family ends up going once ir twice a week. A lot of the time, I find, we need to go less because we're all buying together!

    Have a good ine!
