Ok, when you go shopping, do you shop in bulk or just a little at a time?

My sister glanced in my kitchen closet and noticed I had 6 12pk sodas, 10 bottles of Juicey juices etc etc. I told her when I go shopping I have this habit of just wanting to stock up. Do you as a mom do that or do you just keep going back to the store for whatever you need.

  • I stock up when things are on sale, I have a closet in the laundry room that I keep all the when I run out upstairs I go "shopping" in the laudry room =) Its way too expensive to buy as you go, IMO.

  • I want to start stocking up, when my husband comes along he loves to buy in bulk or extras I keep forgetting to look at the price per oz, which is usually a lot cheaper for the items in bulk than the smaller packages.

  • I stock up! Everytime I go shopping, whether its groceries, drinks, or even clothes and house decor.. I'll NEVER go shopping for just one thing.. when I go, I get a LOAD of things!

  • We generally stock up on things. Certain things we buy in bulk from Costco. We go to the commissary and buy like $150 worth of meat at once. Our fridge is usually packed tight and our pantry is full. We also buy our baby stuff in bulk.

  • Depending on what it is I stock up on snack foods and meats and laundry stuff when I see a sale. But typically everything else is on an as needed basis.

  • I really need to start buying in bulk, because I find that after spending $250 on groceries a week, sometimes, I'm back at the store days later picking up things I forgot or didn't buy enough of!

  • we stock up on almost everything.

  • I stock up also. Sves more money in the long run. I buy huge slabs of meat and cut my own steaks and chops. Also buy tons of chicken and just freeze. Then If I see a sale, I buy as much as I can and store it. Around here there are blizzards alot so you can be stuck in the house for days, you want to have food. Plus with kids it is easier to just go do one big shopping trip once a month.
