  • I probably go grocery shopping 5 or 6 times a week sometimes. being a heavy couponer i make a lot of small trips to hit specific sales, to find unadvertised sales etc.

  • I'm a once a month shopper too.

    once a week or every two weeks for the milk though

  • I go once a month as well. I plan my meals in advance so this works well for me. I do make smaller trips to the store for milk and bread, fresh fruit and veggies.

  • I find several recipes that will feed us for a few days at a time. I usually have 8 picked out for the month and do one large trip and a few small ones to replace milk, bread and produce.

  • I only get to WalMart once a month, so I try to get as much as I can. I get a lot of stares and people that ask me where things are because "it looks like I know what I'm doing." Ignore the idiots.
