what kind of shopper are you?

 do you do one big shopping trip a month?  do you go weekly?  every few days?  do you think you save more money the way you shop as compared to other ways?

we go about every other week with the occasional trip to get milk & such when we run out.  i was talking to one of my sisters the other day & she said when her boys were home she'd do a big weekly shopping trip & spend lots of money.  now that her sons are gone, even though her granddaughter lives with her, she goes to the store every few days & just gets what she needs for those few days.  she says she actually spends less money shopping that way then she did going weekly.  perhaps i thought, or it just could be that the three of them don't eat nearly as much as her boys. ;o)  one of my friends that moved to ny shops like this also since she has a tiny kitchen & she also swears she spends less than she did when she would do a weekly trip. 

just got me to wondering about others shopping habits.

I go about once a month and get bulk items that we need at Costco. Then if and when I need anything like milk and such items I'll go. I'll spend about $150-200 at Costco and maybe $20-30 give or take to my local store.

I generally go weekly; Costco is once a month to every 6 weeks. I have heard that you do spend less when you go every few days to get what you want/need.

I go weekly - mostly because I use lots&lots&lots of coupons and always need fresh fruit, veggies & milk.

We go once a week or once every other week to get bread and milk, and other things like that. We stock up every few months with the non-parish able stuff

I do a big shopping trip once a month, and filler trips maybe once every week or two.
