Does Your Husband Ever Grocery Shop For You By

Himself ? My husband has started to go with me a lot because he likes to cook. In Jan. when my back got bad he had to go by himself all the time. When I had back surgery in March he had to go all the time until about 2 weeks ago and he's pretty good at now, coupons and all. Does anyone else's husbands shop alone, if not why not? I'm so spoiled I don't even want to go alone anymore, but my back's not quite ready for that yet anyway.

  • My boyfriend grocery shops by himself sometimes but most of the time, I'M the one that wants to go with him. We both like shopping and cooking so it joys us in a way, plus we get to spend time together and who doesn't like that? lol. If he needs something while he's at work, I usually get him to leave me a note of what to get him. We spoil eachother. :)

  • I won't even let my husband shop WITH me. He is worse than any child. He throws anything in the cart that he wants. We used to spend a good $50 more per trip if he came then if I went alone. He is banned from grocery shopping.

  • My husband is the shopper of the house. He clips coupons every Sunday. He plans weekly shopping trips to 2 grocery stores to catch the sales. He does the back to school shopping, cloths shopping, holiday shopping, birthday shopping. You name it he shops for it. Sometimes he'll ask me to stop by somewhere after work to pick something up. But he has always been the shopper. I hate shopping.

  • He stops by the grocery store several times a week to save me a trip.

  • My husband actually prefers to do ALL the grocery shopping, AND take our boys with him...ALONE!!

    I guess it helps to marry a man who was used to fending for himself for 15 years prior to us meeting and marrying! LOL :O)

  • Yes...for which I am extremely grateful. I honestly hate going shopping..and it is hard with 2 special need kids. Often he will stop off at Costco or wherever after work and pick up stuff that I need. We are very lucky aren't we...I mean a guy who loves to shop?? That is something:) I'm so thankful for such a wonderful helpful hubby!
