Who does the shopping in your family? It's a family event, we all go.

How often do you go shopping? Once a week, I will go on my way back home from work if there is something that we need that can't wait until the weekend.

On average how much do you spend? It depends, if we go to Costco, expect a high bill, normally maybe $50 a weeks, again it all depends on our Costco trips.

What are the main items you buy each time you go to the store? Fruit and veggies.

Who does the shopping in your family? My husband. We used to go together but then with my first pregnancy I couldn't step foot in a store without it making me puke, so he took it over and I never took it back.

How often do you go shopping? Once a week usually with a quick run for something like milk mid-week.

On average how much do you spend? $75/week?

What are the main items you buy each time you go to the store? Fruits/veggies, milk, cheese, lunch stuff for my husband. We try to stock up on other things when they're on sale (like meat) so we don't buy it every week.

Who does the shopping in your family? Me, or all of us.

How often do you go shopping? Weekly and one trip to WalMart

On average how much do you spend? $900 a month

What are the main items you buy each time you go to the store? We do food storage so the groceries vary wildly, but milk, bananas, frits and veggies are weekly buys.Not so much even milk as we have canned milk too, and we use it so the kids are used to drinking it.
