Is this what anyone else does?

Tell me...
Now when I go food shopping
I NEVER look at prices. I buy what is on my list - if I remember to make one.
If I don't, I wing it and buy whatever I think we would like and what I will make as meals-
I generally spend about $450-535 weekly/
Family of 5/ and 5 animals

What's your take on this?

Ps. I buy lots of fruits
Pss. I buy NO meat when at the supper market
I go then to the town butcher and get my meats and some vegetables from local farmers
The spending at the butchers is usually around 125$

I don't spend that much, but I don't compare prices or look at prices either.

I don't usually look at prices either and I buy fresh vegetables instead of canned

I buy what we need. We are a family of 5 and no animals and I spend about $250 a week....

I look at prices but that doesn't stop me from buying what I want.....

That you are well enough off that money or budgeting isn't a concern to you.

I spend that much every two weeks for a family of 8/10. My spending hasn't changed even though two moved out. Heck, I actually spend less then that so of the time.

I always use a list. I always see what's on sale...why would I want them to have more of my money I can think of better ways to spend it.

No.... I stalk the sales paper, plan our meals by that. And stock up on the basics when they are on sale!
