 Who does the grocery shopping, you, him or both of you? We go together for our main shopping and if we need a misc item or so in between trips he picks it up on his way home from work.

How often do you  grocery  shop? Main shopping together once weekly and sometimes he picks up an odd or ends item if needed in between.

Where do you  buy your groceries? Most of the time Krogers because it's so close by and easy to get in and out fast.

Do you make a list or no and if you do, do you  stick to it? Yes I make a list and I stick to it, Todd however grabs a few extra things according to what he feels like getting  in  the  store for himself at work or his snacks, here and there. : )

Every week
Both of us
Tom Thumb, Wal-Mart, Super Target, and once or twice a month to Costco.
Sometimes a list, I prefer to. It's more for meal planning though and the nessecites we always add to it.

I do the major shopping and keep the list. The list is hung on the fridge and I just write when we need something. He runs out in between for stuff we run out of quickly, like milk or fruit or whatever. 

we also go to different stores. I made the rule years ago he is not allowed to come with me bc he is a huge PITA questioning everything, checking prices and labels, asking why we are going down this asile or that asile....makes me CRAZY. 

Last night we were all out and I need coffeemate so I "allowed" him to come to the store with me. "My" store. Well, all I did was roll my yes and get annoyed! Lol! He didnt park in the right place anddrive around 2x looking for apots he could have parked at first. Ended up going in on the oppisite end I do. We looked at fruit and he started taking grapes out of the bag I wanted and putting others in, or whatever the heck he was doing, I dont even know bc I walked away.  Asked why I was uying so any coffeemates (I had a coupon for 3)

Oh he made me crazy and all we got was 5 things! LOL! 

I usually go 1x weekly or I try and stretch it to week and a half or so.

 well, we don't live together, but when we spend time together, we usually go together.

I make lists.. he doesn't... then forgets... lol. He'll drive and shop nearly every day. He's just used to shopping and planning for one meal at a time, although now he does more 'weekly' type shopping.

I try to go only once  a week. In reality, I usually end up going twice. I just hate the amount of time it consumes out of my day, when I go along. When I'm with him,... doesn't bother me at all.

Who does the grocery shopping, you, him or both of you?  We do our main shopping together because he drives and pays and I get a 10% discount.

How often do you  grocery  shop?  Main shop is once a week but I work at our grocery store so I'm often picking up something after work.

Where do you  buy your groceries?  Zehrs.  It's an Ontario chain that is owned by Loblaws.

Do you make a list or no and if you do, do you  stick to it? I don't use a list.

We usually go together, but here lately I have been going by myself. Once a week we grocery shop but we usually go back into town for something. We shop at Hy-Vee or Sams Club. I make a list and if I go by myself I stick to it but if husband goes there's extra things getting thrown in the cart.
