Want some honest opinions about grocery shopping *thank you for those who actually helped*
Okay so I figured since this is one of the largest groups I'm a member of I'll get a varity of opinions. In the 5 years my husband and I have been together we have never been able to go grocery shopping together. I am very much of a get in get only what you need and get out. He is the kind that goes up and down every asile throwing whatever looks good in the cart and most of the time missing whatever we need. I asked him to go a few times to pick up one item and he comes home with 3 or 4 bags full of junk. Sometimes he doesnt even get what I asked in the first place! I have sent him with a list, I have texted him, I've even called him and told him what to buy. He always grabs extra stuff. I go in and I'm under budget with everything that I need for the month. If I have extra I'll go ahead and buy the goods.When we go together we are fighting about what to buy, when he does the meat I'd go and grab other items that made him mad because he felt I wasnt including him, he gets pissed off at the kids (ages 2 and 5 months) when they start to get fussy. It takes us about 2-3 hours to grocery shop together!
So here is what is happening, lately I've been doing the grocery shopping on Friday before he gets home and everything is put away. We can sit and relax I thought this was a no biggie. Apparently it is and he wants to go. I dont know what to do with this. I honestly cannot trust him to get the needed items and only the needed items. I need some thoughts.
Should I let him go with? Should I trust him with half the list? Should I ask him to just please stay home with either 1 or both kids?
Thank you for those who actually gave advice. I'll try the cash and spliting the list so he can get the junk and i'll grab everything else. What the issue is the amount of junk food he gets. I budget out snacks for the house but he goes and grabs more each time we go then I have to put stuff back that I want/need. So with that said thank you again for those who were helpful
I've talked to him about this before and he is asking me to give him a chance. It wasnt just 2 or 3 times. It's been over 10 times he has come home with more than requested
