I go grocery shopping once every 2 weeks and that's it. I usually make a list of what we need and buy it all at once. Less trips to the grocery store, I don't spend as much and it saves time.

I go there atleast once a week, I usually get everything we need for the whole week or more, I keep a list with me to prevent buying the wrong items and not buying what we really need.

I used to only go once a week. Since I've been off work, I've been going 2 or 3 times per week. It seems like we are constantly running out of milk, bananas and waffles.

I normally go at least once or twice a week. We go to the store once every 2 or 3 weeks to really stock up. But I always end up having to go to the store periodically throughout the week to get stuff like milk and diapers.

I go to the grocery store about once a week. Sometimes once every two weeks. I love shopping, so its not a problem with me. I tend to mainly make groceries for my niece and nephews. I babysit them during the week and they eat a whole lot.

We use to go buy our groceries once a week and if there are somethings that we really need maybe twice a week we can go. Its expensive to always go to a store because sometimes you can buy stuff that you did not really need it.

yeah that's why people would also go to grocery store and buy everything they need...

I usually try to go once a week but sometimes I forget something or else we run out. But I try to make it only one trip a week since gas is so high.

We moved from a larger city to a small rural village a number of years ago. Although we have two grocery stores in town...their prices are a little high. The nearest big box store is about 45 minutes away in one of our larger towns. In fact it is a Super Store...and were we delighted when it came to our area...the prices are considerably lower than the 'corner store.' So our pattern is to do a big...major shop once a month...and only go to the local store when we run out of something. Thankfully at this time of year we grow our own salad fixings and our fruit trees give us an abundance of berries so we're okay there. Winter we shop once a week for the fresh foods and freeze as much as we can to avoid travelling. In Manitoba...we're freezing from December through March..so travelling just for grocs is something we try not to do.

We go the first week of every month only.Rarely the second time in the middle of the month if any guests drop in for a stay.I store everything for a month.I hate being devoid of anything at a wrong moment.

At least twice a week.Though most of time I always pick up the same food in my basket but I like going to the grocery store with my friends.So if they invisite me to go with them,I seldom say no.

Right now I am at home for my summer vacation. I don't go shopping. Instead my wife does the job. I am at home helping my son with his English lessons the whole morning. I am happy that my wife has no complaints at all. She is happy to go to grocery every day or every other day.

Waaaaaaaaaay to many times in a week. My father in law goes to the store every single day for stupid little things. My husband and I will try to go just once a week and maybe a maximum of twice if we run out of something that we simply can't live without until the next trip. I hate going to the store where we live it's so over crowded and never enough workers.

Well when I’m really good- which I haven’t been in a while- I go once- with a list and coupons- I make out my dinners for the week- and my daughter shares what she wants for lunches (school) and snacks – and we go- One time on Sunday- Done! But lately- I’ve been playing it by ear- and going a couple times a week- This is more costly also- so I have to get back into only going once.

I go once a week.But I only buy what is on sale.When I go I go to 4 differant stores to hit the sales.This is how I save money.All 4 stores are within 1 mile.
