Aloha Friday

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday again over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:

How often do you get groceries? Are they big trips or little ones?

I'm super cheap! I usually go once every 1-1 1/2 weeks and stock up on the BOGO deals and meat. I try to plan ahead make sure that I have enough stuff to make meals off of during the week. If we need something during the week that I forgot(or things like milk or bread), I try to send my hubby so I wont be tempted to buy a bunch! Pin It!

I try to only go once a week and get everything we need for the week. That is usually what happens - but there are the occasional weeks when I'm down there at least 3 times. I live very close to the store now so it's more tempting to go down there then it used to be!

Every 1st and 15th me and my friend car pool to the commissary and do our major grocery shopping. I do make little trips here and there for milk.

I go once week, but it's usually a small trip b/c hubby works at a grocery store, and every night he calls to see if we need anything, and if I do, he picks it up.

We try to shop once a week. Usually we need milk or bread in between, but we live almost right across the street from Kroger, so it's easy to pick up what is needed.

Once a week, but sometimes I have to stop in between for bread and milk.

I too have been trying to plan my meals and do big grocery shopping every 1-1/2 weeks. I drive to my moms house (45 mins away) to do this bc she has a Food 4 Less. Not one near me! They're WAY cheaper its crazy. I still have to make small trips to the local store for stuff we run out of or late night sweet cravings :) but good idea to send the hubby! I always buy more on those trips then i need to.

I do a big shopping every two weeks and once a week I shop for the things I run out of. I like to plan ahead too and stock up on the sale items.

Abby said...

I go once a week for a fairly big trip. I plan out all of our meals for the week so I should have everything I need. I hate going back if I forget something!

We take a family trip every Friday. Come November, though, the grocery shopping will be solely up to Alex and the hubster. I'll be too busy holding a baby. :)

Melissa said...

I go major grocery shopping like 2-3 times a month, but I'm always back for more. Luckily it's only about a 3-4 minute drive otherwise I'd be wasting gas like crazy!

Jennifer said...

DH stops on his way home fro work to pick up what we need to make dinner.

Heather said...

We go about once a month, or sometimes once every 2 months, for the big trip. We of course have to go back multiple times for stuff we run out of or forgot. I really want to go once a week, but I don't having a lisence so i have to do it when my husband wants to. And he does not want to go every week (even though he ends up doing it anyway for quick stops.)

I go to the store about once a week unless I need little stuff. I need to start making one big trip. Thankfully we purchase a beef and that saves us a lot.

Krystyn said...

That's pretty much exactly the same for us.

Superjaxster said...

We are terrible at getting our butts to the store at all. I will run down the street for last minute things and will stock up on sale items if I am out. We make an effort to go the the store with a list at least once a month or maybe twice if we really start to run out of food. This is something I would like to improve, then we wouldn't be tempted to get pizza or go out so often!

I go to the grocery store usually every other week and walmart every other week so they rotate out. Come on over and link up!

I am Harriet said...

I load up at Sam's club once a week and supplement usually once a week somewhere else. Depends if my lean mean eating machine will be home :)

Liz (Loving Mom 2 Boys) said...

I do a once a week thing. Although lately we have been going back to having them delivered through peapod weekly...so much better than actually going to the store!!

Nabeel said...

I don't go for shopping much, but when go then it takes time

Zonie Mama said...

At least once a week. Sometimes more but thats because I coupon shop and if I have a good coupon and there is a sale and I get the item for free or close to it I will go back multiple times to stock up on it. But I go at least once a week.

Jinxy said...

We grocery shop every Saturday. Sometimes one of us has to go to the store during the week for something that was forgotten, but that is pretty rare.

Flying Giggles & Lollipops said...

I usually go every other week and stock up

Melinda said...

usually the main trip once a week with a couple mini trips thrown in for sale items

TheAngelForever said...

We typically plan out meals for the week Saturday and then shop over the weekend in one major trip. Of course we still usually make one small trip for other essentials in between.

ParentingPink said...

I TRY to go once a week, but that usually doesn't work. I also end up making a smaller trip during the week for everything I forgot to put on my list! LOL

NateAndJakesMom said...

I go once a week. Sending hubby to the store periodically to pick up the things I have inevitably forgotten.
