  • Depends. Sometimes I do 'variety' shopping when I'm near the unusual markets (Indian, Middle Eastern, local food, Italian or just the swish, fun stores) which works out to two or three in a week... sometimes I shop every 10 days to 2 weeks.

  • My son is two and my husband is 27. For one dinner I can make a 3 pound meat loaf and my son (yes, for being 2, my son eats a ton of food, lol he isnt overweight though so thats good) and husband will eat almost all of it and i will take a small helping and have no left overs some way some how. I also buy the 5 dozen eggs and they are gone in two weeks time, sometimes less. Im very afraid when my son hits his teens lol. I go through a thing of bananas every other day, but im lucky with the milk. My son loves water...thank God. lol

  • 1-2 times a week. It depends on whether or not a Costco run is needed.

  • I go about twice a week. We plan all of our meals, so I do the bulk of the shopping during the first trip, and I have a second list for later in the week with the perishables that go with the meals that fall after that trip. It works well for me!

  • I have always shopped twice a month and that was with raising 4 boys close in age. I bought it and they learned to make it last because they knew I wouldn't be buying anything to replace it.

  • About once a week. The cupboards do get pretty bare though.
