How often do you grocery shop?

How often do you go grocery shopping?

once a week? once a month? on an "as needed" basis?

I am not a good planner. I do a large shop every 2 weeks and seem to run to the store at least 5 times a week for things.

I shop every 7-12 days depending on the sales. The second week if there isn't any good sales would just pick up milk, fruit, etc.

I do keep a running list of things we are getting low on using the back of an envelope from the mail so I can put in the coupons I know I'll be using. It also makes it easy if I decide not to buy something that week to put it on a new envelope as soon as I get home so I don't forget to buy it the next week.

I try to go no more than once a week, and try to stretch it out as long as I can!

Normally I go grocery shopping once a week but recently it has been more like twice a week. My two teenaged dss are eating me out of house and home. Seems like I just finish grocery shopping and two days later they are saying there is nothing in the house to eat and they are right.

I go on an as needed basis, especially in the summer. With the kids home I run out of everything more often! UGH

I used to be on a shopping schedule years ago, but when I started working from home it became less of a requirement.

I am generally a weekly shopper unless we run out of some crucial item.
