Homeschooling Moms Homeschooling Moms

Lately I've been letting my husband do the grocery shopping... I make a list, very specific... and I've been letting him do it... its been kind of nice.  How about you ladies, does your husband do any of the shopping???

I was feeling pretty blessed about this today, since my hub is doing the shopping. He's pretty great at it. Mind you, I really had to lay things out in a customized order for him to make sure he gets what we want/need from the right places so we also save money. It's been worth every second I spent!!!

This. Lol I'd LOVE if I could trust him to do it. But he wouldn't check prices, use coupons, or get what is on the list. He would claim he couldn't find anything.

Quoting timon95:

No way, if he shops he.comes home with junk food and doesn't use coupons. He is not allowed to shop. The kids might like oreos and ice cream for dinner, but i don't.

Quoting BetcCarter:

No...my husband does just about nothing...he lost his job and he has one class in college this semester...Honestly I want to smack him. He spends the entire day on his computer (but not applying for jobs) and then once in a while he cleans the living room (which means he has the kids pick up their toys and then he vaccums...). He did make dinner last night...mac and cheese with hotdogs. No Veggies though...it would all be so funny if it did not piss me off so much...ok done venting>.<


I can understand your frustration!  <hugs>  You can vent here anytime.  Do you think maybe hubby is depressed?  How long has he been out of work if you don't mind me asking?  :(

We do the bulk shopping together (including bringing the 1 and 3 year olds), but if we need something in the middle of the week, he usually picks it up when he gets off work at 5 a.m.  Yes, he'll occasionally get junk, but he mostly knows what we buy and is an excellent bargain-shopper.  He's even trying to find time to sign us both up for a couponing class :)
