I get most of my groceries at Aldi ... followed by Price Chopper.  I get my organic whole milk at either Hyvee or Whole Foods (Kaluna brand - they batch pasturize their milk so the whole milk has bits of cream floating at the top!)

I can go to 3 different stores... Meijer, Aldi, Sam's Club. Sometimes Kroger or Trader Joes.

In my little town, there is only one grocery store, so that being said on the days that I try to do a bigger amount of shopping I head to a neighboring town and hit Walmart, Giant Eagle and Save-Alot.

Just one.

Usually just one. When I need something else, I could go to another one. But I only go to one main one. Then the other is just close to home, so easier when needing to grab something. I don't like the idea of driving around a million places to save money when then I am using gas. Plus I hate shopping & it is a nightmare usually for me. So i want to get in, done & out. 

Once every two months or so we hit Sam's.

There are things that Aldi doesn't carry which I get at Price Chopper.  These 2 stores are practically across the street from each other.   I have been purchasing an organic milk - Kalona - and the Hyvee 1/2 mile down the street from me carries the milk but not the cream or half-n-half.  grrr.   I would have to drive several miles to Whole Foods to get the cream or half-n-half so I usually pass on getting those.  WalMart is catty-corner from the Aldi and Price Chopper so I go there to get my soaps, shampoos, hair color, cat litter,  etc.  Sometimes I'll get stuff from the Dollar Store which is about 2 blocks from me but they don't always have the brands I want and I'd rather keep my shopping excursions to a minimum! 

Since it's just me, I rarely go to Sam's Club as I really don't have the extra $$ to spend to buy the large quantities they have there.

I go to the farmers market every friday for my meat and some veggies. I go to the co-op for other organic products, and I go to the big grocery for other stuff.

Mostly one.  I don't like shopping, so I try and get it all done in one.  I would love to shop at Aldi, but they have only a small portion of what I buy, so I do about 95% of my shopping at Meijer.

I favor Fred Meyer or Rosaurs, but neither of them are  very convenient in terms of proximity to where I live.  So I go to Safeway or Albertsons when I need to run to the store.

I get a lot of stuff at Meijers.  There are some things that I prefer to get at Krogers.  On rare occasions I will go to Target or Walmart.
