I absolutely despise grocery shopping. I usually go every other week but even that is too often. Before we moved I used to shop once a month and LOVED that but not it just isn’t possible due to how my hubby gets paid now. Do you all like to grocery shop? I am just interested to see what other thing about shopping and how often you go.
I shop every other week and top up on bread and milk and such as needed (fruit! wow do we go through apples and bananas!) like Lynn.
I don’t mind shopping. Like it best if I take just one of my three boys. Or if I take all three if we get the truck cart – then they’re as happy as little clams and I can take more time than otherwise.
i go to the grocery after jacob goes to bed…its actually like a little escape for me–alone time! i go every few weeks for the big trip, but always end up going a few times a week for one thing–confession: sometimes for something that can wait, but i just wanna get out of the house alone for 15 min…
and, yeah, karen, when i do take jacob, those truck carts are a lifesaver–love whoever invented those!
I do the “big trip” every week and a half or so. Small trips for bread, milk, bananas, etc. in between.
We now consume about four gallons of milk a week, four loaves of bread, and about seven or eight pounds of bananas. My skinny little kids can really “put it away”! (God bless ‘em – I’d rather have “eaters” than have to struggle with every bite. That’s exhausting! )
I did the “super big Easter shopping trip” yesterday. I had TONS of coupons this week. Between store savings, coupons, and a discount certificate I had (I take the discount instead of the free ham! It’s a better deal for me.)…I saved $96.00!!! I was really proud! Still spent over $200…..but I bought a ham, chicken breasts, and other meats as a part of it all.
I always need the “cart person” to help me out with my two carts!
I’m officially the “lady with all the kids!” I felt like that lady on Discovery Channel who takes her 16 kids shopping with her! Can you IMAGINE attempting that? …and I thought I had a shopping challenge each week!
