How often do you do your household shopping? Once a week? Once a month? Whenever you need to without any specific schedule? Do you prefer to stock up on bulk items or buy just the amount you'll need within a short amount of time? Do you shop with a written list or by memory? Please let me know about any staples that you always buy or specific brands that you must have.

We usually go about once a month. We just get alot of stuff and kinda stock up so that we won't have to go again. We also go to BJ's to stock up on the bulk stuff. I WISH we could stick to a list! LoL. You save money that way! But we always get to the store and say, "Oh! I want that!", and end up not even using the list!

This is what I'd like to do but we just don't have the space to stock more than a two weeks supply. I can't seem to stick with a list either. I either forget that I even wrote one or get a bad case of "oh that looks good" and buy other stuff instead. Is BJ's like Sam's Club?

Ok, thanks. I figured it was but had never been to one. We only have a Sam's Club nearby but it's right next to a super Walmart so we don't go in much.

To maintain freshness, vegetables are purchased once in 3 days. Groceries are purchased once in a month. If anyother thing left out,stockout, or a new thing is required, all those on any Sunday. Yes, a list is always written otherwise it is difficult to pick the material

I'm curious why any extra trips are planned for Sundays? Is it just the most convenient day because of work schedules? I'm asking because any time I forget or am unable to purchase something I just go back the next day regardless of what day of the week it is. Also do you write your list all at once or do you add to it throughout the month?

Once a week because that is how often I get paid. I go in between for things I may run out of before the week is up, but the bulk is purchased every Friday or Saturday.
