people needs basic things like food and clothing so i know everyone here goes grocery shopping. i usually go with my husband or mother in law to buy things in the groceries. we do it once or twice a week. it just depends if we still have stocks in the fridge or we really need to buy something important or if there is an occassion and we want to cook something special. i do enjoy grocery shopping but i just don't like when prices increase and you tend to buy less than you usually do. however, we always stick on our weekly budget. it's always good to use some discount coupons too so you can save. we also have bonus card from the store that you can earn points for buying in that store, the points you earn can be redeemed for gas discount or free products so i find its actually good. i like to also buy things in the grocery that is currently on sale or there is a buy one take one tag. you see there are a lot of ways which we can really save and be a smart shopper. so next time you go grocery shopping keep an eye on it and enjoy your time grocery shopping too!

Since I started my new job we don't go shopping as much. We used to go at least once a week to get the things we need every week like fruits and vegetables and things like that. Now we're lucky if we go once a month.

I used to grocery shop by myself, but then my daughter moved into her own apartment and now we go together. There are a lot of great coupon sites on the net, if you look around. We usually save about 1/3 of our grocery bill using them. Combined with the buy one, get one deals, we usually make out pretty well.

Actually, I can really relate to this. I'm a thrifty shopper at heart and it's almost fun like a hobby for me to see how much money I can actually save on buying products most notably food. I like to cook from scratch too so it's fun to look at like a loaf of bread for like $1.25 "on sale!" and think...hmm, I can make 3 loaves from scratch for less than that lol.
