How often do you have to go to the grocery store?

I find myself going at least once or twice a week during the summer. I'm not sure how to go less and keep things like bread and fruit from going bad!

  • We go every Tuesday. :-) And sometimes to get more fruit once or twice between. The apples and oranges stay good for a while, but the bananas go bad and the strawberries don't even survive a single sitting with my daughter!
    We get a lot of bread, but put all but one in the freezer and pull some out as the other gets close to being empty. It stays fresher longer and doesn't get moldy and still tastes the same. It'll keep for a long time in the freezer.

  • I do my main grocery shopping 2x/month when I get paid and then I will go maybe once a week to pick up any forgotten items, or things we run out of like milk or to get fresh produce. Sometimes I will skip the store and call hubs and have him pick up what I need (like milk) on his way home from work.

  • I go to the grocery store once a week. I may have to go every once in a while if I've forgotten something, but overall, I go once a week.

  • Every 2 weeks. I have a basement where I keep my fruit cool and in the dark and I freeze my bread and milk so I don't have to go so often.
