How often do you go to the grocery store?

Do you go alone, or with DH?

How often do you go to the grocery store? Every two weeks (with a few trips in between for special cravings lol)

Do you go alone, or with DH? I go with dh and the kiddos, it is just nice to go with my family. Although I might get out of there cheaper if I went alone!!! LOL

How often do you go to the grocery store? We go every Sunday. I think im one of the very few people in the world who enjoys grocery shopping, Haha!

Do you go alone, or with DH? I have to go with DH, I can do anything else alone but grocery shopping is the one thing I cannot do alone. People annoy me and I get all anxious. I went for the first time EVER by myself this past Sunday and I will never, ever do that again!

How often do you go to the grocery store? Once a week, sometimes every other week. Depends on how much we eat out. I always have to hit the party store for milk. We go through a gallon of milk every other day.

Do you go alone, or with DH? I try not to go with DH because he has to read every single label and he is so slow. I walk up and down the isles throwing things in the cart that we need and get out. I hate grocery shopping

How often do you go to the grocery store? I got a couple times a week. Lack of organization is why.

Do you go alone, or with DH? Oh dear don't make me have nightmares like that! I go ALONE! I put my ipod headphones in and just take my time. Its always after work when the store is the busiest and people are the most rude so I try to tune out and be polite.

How often do you go to the grocery store? Every two weeks I make a big trip...then during the "off" weeks I make one small trip for things like fresh veggies and milk.

Do you go alone, or with DH? These days it's me and Claire. DH analyzes every.single.purchase, so I avoid going with him at all costs

DH and I used to go together...but it's too big of a hassle to wait on him to get ready and blah blah blah... I like to go either early in the AM on the weekend or I'll stop by after work....I haven't done a major grocery trip in a while...I usually go just once a week, but I need to make another big trip soon because I need to stock up on freezer meals and I need all the ingredients

How often do you go to the grocery store? I go every two weeks but usually end up back there at some point during then cause mike eats everything and we usually run out of stuff.
Do you go alone, or with DH? Just me. Everytime Mike comes my bill is always atleast $40 more and i have no idea what he puts extra in the cart. haha

We go every two weeks with a little trip in between. DH and I go together on a Sunday usually. Its kind of some weekend bonding time. We've both got the same shopping style, up and down each aisle with an eye out for what we need, not rushing, but not lolly-gagging either. It doesn't take us long

How often do you go to the grocery store? I try for only once a week. Sometimes I need to make a second, smaller trip though

Do you go alone, or with DH? I rarely bring DH, quicker that way!

How often do you go to the grocery store? We do several small trips when ever we need something but we do our big trip once ever 6 weeks or so.

Do you go alone, or with DH? Either. I prefer that he don't go alone but I don't mind going with him or going by myself.
