  • Yep I do not send my husband for anything. When I do I give him a list and he still manages to forget things.

  • Me. My husband is bad about going grocery shopping. I can give him the list and coupons and he comes home not following the list or using the coupons and has a whole bunch of junk. He's 50/50 on it. So, I prefer to go because I am set in my ways.

  • I do most of the grocery shopping because I do most of the cooking and meal planning. He's perfectly capable and has done it in the past, but then I find I don't know what's in the house when it comes to planning meals! He tends to be a little heavy on the protein and light on the veggies, too.

  • I do it most of the time, but my hubby is very capable of going for us when I need him to. He pretty much sticks to the list I give him and will even call me if he has a question about anything on the list. My hubby is one of those rare men who will even buy feminine products without any hesitation!

  • I usually do the shopping, but he is the opposite from your husband. He will get exactly what is on the list, if he can find it. I usually get phone calls from him saying they don't have what's I've written, and I know they do! Like one time I told him to get Jello chocolate pudding mix. In a box. He called and said they didn't have it. I heard a lady in the background telling him (basically that it was right in front of him) The only thing he will buy extra is pasta. He says "but it was buy one, get one free" and he'll have like 6 boxes, when I still have it in the cupboard from the last time he shopped. He's Italian, so maybe he's tring to tell me to make pasta more often? Gotta love em. I can't complain because he is trying to help, so I just go in the other room and scream silently!
