I refuse to shop on the weekends because the grocery store is a madhouse with the number of people shopping. I always go first thing Monday morning - that's when my store restocks, and as long as I get there right after dropping off DD at school, there's usually no more than a dozen other shoppers in the whole store with me. Finn is usually content in his car seat in the cart for the hour or so that it takes me to shop.

I plan the week's menu and write up the shopping list on Sunday. We only eat meat 1-2 times per week because of the cost, but I only plan meals with meat from what we've already got in our freezer. That way when I go to the store, if any meat is crazy on sale, or there's a good deal on a reduced item that I can put straight into my freezer, I'll buy that and use it for future week's menus.

I pretty much stick to my shopping list, unless I find a really good deal on something that I can stock up on for the freezer or pantry.
