 Is it a help or a hinderance to your budget?

Ha! He barely knows what the inside of a grocery store looks like!

he has to, since I work 7 days a week.  He does pretty good, although I have to make a VERY specific list for him.  He can't say no to our DD, so if she goes along he always spends more

I love it most of the time.  I had to learn to make him eat something before he shops though or he buys a bunch of junk food and forget the main staples.

He grocery shops and budgets. I do the menu for a week and grocery list.

He goes grocery shopping with me and it usually increases what I was planning on spending. But I never plan for coming anywhere close to my allotted grocery budget because I know that DH is going to add things he didn't tell me we needed or he wants.

Not really. Occasionally he will go with me, but he isn't allowed to go alone. Once in a while if I'm home and I need something while he's out I'll send him to the store for something specific, but he has no idea how to really shop.

Amen to that!! I go 99% of the time if he ever goes I have to give a detailed list. If I forget to list something like milk or bread something that we buy every week He still won't get it just doesn't think of it. I say he needs more practice. I literally just got home from the grocery and it sucked!

He does often. He gets the best bang for our buck and lots of variety for everyone.
