We all go to the grocery store together. Cam likes to ride in the space shuttle cart. We go every Sunday and spend about 60ish. I think it would ne less if DH wouldn't go. lol.

There are no main things we buy when we go. All we get is what is on my list or the junk DH puts in the cart.

Me

How often do you go shopping?
I do a "big shop" once a month, and I stop in about 1-2 times a week to pick up perishables, bread, dairy, etc.

On average how much do you spend?
At the "big shops" about $500
On the little "top up" ones, usually about $30

What are the main items you buy each time you go to the store?
Little shops:
Bread (usually from the bakery, theyre so much cheaper than the supermarkets, the loaves are bigger and they taste better too)
Yoghurt
Cheese
Wraps
Milk
Deli items like olives, sundried tomatoes and such
Tofu

Big shops:
Pasta
Rice
Lentils
Other legumes
Eggs
Flour
Sugar
Yeast
...all the usual stuff I guess



I will also note that we grow most of our own fruits and veggies, and that really cuts our budget.

Who does the shopping in your family? We all go. My husband is no help list wise so if he wants food/snacks, he needs to come and choose. Though things will change when we get used to the couponing thing.

How often do you go shopping? Twice a month? Sometimes 3, depending.

On average how much do you spend? I try to spend no more than 150.

What are the main items you buy each time you go to the store? We go through so much milk, veggies and fruits. I also bulk up on meat when we go. Those are the main things.

Me
Once a week, maybe twice if I didn't get time to do it all at once
$150-$200
Cheese, ground beef, bread, pasta sauce..

We're a boring family when it comes to food since DH has a sensory disorder.

I do it.
I go weekly, sometimes a couple times.
I spend around $150 the first week of the month and then around $75 the remaining weeks.
Main buys are meats, milk, soda, snacks, noodles and sauces.

I tend to end up at the store for small items like a gallon of milk or some soda and that runs me around $25 ish on average cuz I grab a couple more items I remember needing LOL. So over the month I spend probably $500 in groceries give or take a bit.

Who does the shopping in your family? Just depends on who's out.

How often do you go shopping? Whenever needed.

On average how much do you spend? It really varies.

What are the main items you buy each time you go to the store? There's nothing particular that I get every time.

Who does the shopping in your family? Right now we both go. Dh usually hates grocery shopping but I'm still in the process of transferring my driver's license so we don't have much of an option. He's a good sport about it though and we usually end up finding a way to have fun. We get strange looks sometimes.

How often do you go shopping? Weekly.

On average how much do you spend? It varies. It depends heavily on whether we're going to be home every night for the next week (I meal plan) or whether we're going to be at my il's for a day or two, whether or not it's a weekend with children or just us, what we're getting from the farmer's market instead, whether or not we're stocking up on meat (we bulk buy meat and I butcher/portion/freeze we usually go 4-6 weeks between buying meat (and obviously it costs us more on those days), etc.

What are the main items you buy each time you go to the store? Coffee. Although we only buy it from the grocery store if it's on sale. If it isn't, it's cheaper per ounce to buy it from Starbucks directly. Cheese is another one we buy almost weekly.

We both do - together sometimes and on our own.
once a week, and we do one big costco shopping once a month.
Weekly we spend about $100 to $150 for the basics and perishables. So salad stuff, milk, cheese, fruit, snacks and any basics we have run out of. We do a bulk meat buy at costco once a month.
