Almost always on Sunday, but right now since I'm not working, it may be more likely during the week.

We almost always all go shopping together--at least, before Anna. Since she's been born, I've gone grocery shopping once, and I took Anna. Grace was at daycare. I don't know if I'm brave enough yet to take both kids. Maybe if DH was there too.

Not that it's my favorite by any means, but I usually shop at Wal-Mart...because it's close, and convenient. I love Whole Foods, but it's far away and expensive. The only other option that is close is Kroger, and they don't always have what I'm looking for. Our Wal-Mart has a better selection of gluten free stuff than Kroger.

I almost always buy milk, almonds, and Diet Cokes. I'm sure there's more...

How often do you grocery shop...weekly, bi-weeky, monthly? its usually bi-weekly, but i really should go every week. By the time i go shopping, we are down to NOTHING.

Do you take your children? yes. every time.

What is your favorite grocery store? My favorite & the closest is Publix...but its more expensive than Wal-mart, especially when it comes to things like diapers, paper goods, etc....so i usually just suffer through it, and go to wal-mart.

Is there one food that you buy every time? What is it? i always get the same stuff every time...and then some. A couple of things i make sure to always have in my fridge are almond milk, yogurt (for olivia) & apple Juice.


i am also embarrassed to admitt, but i buy these $1 instant rice/pasta packets by the truck load for my kids. They're Knorr Rice Sides or Pasta Sides...and take like 10 minutes all together on the stove top. So easy. I always throw like 5-10 of them in the cart - all different flavors (spanish is their favorite) - i have probably 20 in my pantry right now.

We typically grocery shop weekly. The day if the week varies though depending on what's going on.

If I go, I always have at least one kid. Today I took both boys. If DH goes, he's usually alone.

I usually shop at Sprouts

We always get milk and bread.
We typically buy mostly the same stuff though, so three list looks pretty similar each time we go.

Meg, I have to add, I don't know ANY of the stores you listed

How often do you grocery shop...weekly, bi-weeky, monthly? Big shopping is once a week, but I also stop at the store for odds and ends like 2 times a week or so.

Do you take your children?Oh, helllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll no. Shopping is a little bit of alone time I get.

What is your favorite grocery store? Fry's (which is Kroger)

Is there one food that you buy every time? Yes
What is it? Apples, bananas, bread, milk, meat. When I do my big shopping trip each week, I normally buy the same stuff week to week.

How often do you grocery shop...weekly, bi-weeky, monthly?I used to go every two weeks, but found we weren't eating some of the meals I had planned and wasting a ton of food. So now I go weekly. I like it much better.

Do you take your children?I really try not to take Bella, but sometimes I do.

What is your favorite grocery store?I shop mostly at the commissary, but I do like to go to Dillons also.

Is there one food that you buy every time?
What is it?Milk, bananas and those chewy fiber one bars.

I try to go once a week. That seems to work best. I like to go on Sundays but if I can't make it I will go Monday. I also hit Costco twice a month.

Chase if I go on Sunday. If it's during the week I have Chase & Julia.

Meijer. Kroger is too $$$ unless I have coupons matched to the ad.

Milk, bread, apples, bananas

Do you take your children? - It's a family trip, unless our Sunday morning has been busy. Then I'll go by myself during his nap.

What is your favorite grocery store? Harris Teeter (which is tripling coupons 99c and under this week!), though we also hit Bi-Lo depending on the deals

Is there one food that you buy every time? Not really, since I prefer to buy milk at Sam's Club now. Hubby usually makes up the shopping list based on coupons.
