How often do you go grocery shopping.

How much do you spend each time you go.


I go once every 2 weeks and spend about $150 each time. The reason why I spend so little is cause I have a deep freezer, a upright frezzer, plus the one above my fridge. So they are pretty stocked most the time.

We go at least weekly.  Sometimes, I go two different places in one week.  We spend around $100 a week.  I wish I had a deep freezer.

I go major shopping once a month and spend about 200, then weekly for things like milk and eggs. So i spend maybe 6-10 depending. I don`t have a deep freezer either.

We got one at tax time in 2009 and 2010 best investments I ever made.

We go once a week. We spend between 150 and 200.00. We don't "stock up" on food. We buy food fresh weekly. The only thing I keep in my freezer is vegetables and bread.

I go about once every 2 weeks as well. I usually spend about $150-$180, depending on what I have to purchase. If I have to pick up just food, the total is lower than the trips where I have to add things like laundry detergent and hygene supplys to my list.  Occasionally, I will have to run out between the bigger shopping trips for staples like milk and eggs.

I wish I could do that but I can't. We get no help my dh is the only one working. We are barely staying a float right now. So stocking up for us really helps us out. I have $300 for the whole month for 6 of us. There is no way we would survive off that.
