How many times a week do you food shop?

With a growing 13 yr old boy in the house it seems that I'm at the store every other day...LOL but really I go about 2 times a week. How about you?

  • I go BIG shopping once a week, but i usually have to go back to get more milk, bread, or a forgotten ingredient a few times in between.

  • I try to go only once a week but alot of times it ends up being 2 times. I have a 16 yr old and and all that kid does is eat. The 8 yr old doesn't eat that much yet.

  • My husband or I shop probably 5 times a week. There is Sam's, Costco's, the regular store (Farm Fresh), Trader Joes, Asian Market.

  • I go every Saturday. We have a stock of almost everything, so if we run out of something a couple days before I go shopping again, we just make due with what we have and change our plans a bit.

  • I try to keep it to once a week. But sometimes we'll decide that we want something other than the planned meals, or we'll discover that we're out of something that I didn't know about when I did the weekly shopping.

  • 2 or 3 times at least. I have 2 teens who love to eat.

  • More than I used to. It really depends on what's in the sales ads & what we need though. My job ends a couple blocks away from a grocery store so 6 days a week I can stop if I need to. Some weeks I don't go at all, some weeks I stop every day. I haven't gone at all this week, but might today because cheese is on sale.
