How often do you grocery shop?

I love grocery shopping. I make my lists based upon what I am making plus will add in a few 'just in case' extras.

I shop for 2 weeks, but lately (the last couple of months) I am finding that I am having to make more and more quick trips in between scheduled shopping days. Because of this, I am spending quite a bit more money than usual.

How often do you grocery shop? Do your supplies last until the next scheduled trip? How do you keep on track?

I follow a few bloggers on FB and they have coupon roundups so I like getting the best deal possible.

Every week.  I use Southern Savers to find deals and match them with my coupons.

I shop weekly because we eat fresh. Fresh food won't generally last longer than a week... The only thing that I sometimes run out of is Milk before the next scheduled trip. We go through about 2 gals a week, sometimes we will run out a day early, but I won't make an extra trip.

i keep track by making lists. I make a grocery list, and also I plan weekly meals.

Usually twice a month for most stuff but we get fresh stuff once a week. I make lists and things do usually last until the next trip.

I usually go 1-2 times a week. I get big stuff once a week but I make extra trips for juice and fresh veggies/fruits.
