Grocery Store-how often do you go?

How often do you guys go to the grocery store?  Once a week, once every two weeks, once a month?  I'm just curious.  Normally, I go once every two weeks and periodically during those 2 weeks if I need something like bread, milk, etc.  I'm curious because I started doing a menu for meals and it's driving me crazy doing 14 or so days worth.  I was thinking about going once a week.  My problem is, I hate going to the grocery store!!!  So, how often do you ladies go?

I used to do big shopping twice a week and produce once a week (I buy produce at a different store) but I'm not sure how I'll work that out now that husband's gone. I hate grocery shopping too, but I also hate meal planning too far in advance or throwing out bad produce.

 About once a week to get a cart full of stuff. I dont like to plan meals so far a head in advanced, becasue thigns I get for them go bad eventually. And we of course have the occasional "opps I forgot something running to the store real quick" moments. =)

I go like twice a week, only because I don't cook and I can never figure out what to do for anything why Im there, so I randomly go weekly

I go every two weeks. If I need something in between those weeks I just pick them up. I hate going grocery shopping so I avoid it as much as possible.

i go once every 2 weeks for the majority of things and then periodically throughout to get small things here or there...i usually only plan meals for the first week and then get basics that i can put together easily.

I do the major shopping once a week, but I always end up going back because I usually forget some crucial item I needed!
