How often do you buy groceries?

I ONLY BUY GROCERIES WHEN I REALLY NEED THEM FOR A SPECIAL HOLIDAY OR COMPANY. IT IS ONLY MYSELF AND MY HUSBAND AND HE EATS OUT ALOT DURING THE WEEK BECAUSE OF HIS JOB AND I DON'T EAT ALOT SO WHEN I NEED MILK OR BREAD OR PET FOOD THAT IS ALL I BUY. I HATE GROCERIE SHOPPING AND ESPECIALLY WITH THE COST OF THEM TODAY.

Most weeks I make two hunting and gathering expeditions. One local supermarket has Senior Citizen Day on Tuesday and the other honors Senior Citizens on Wednesday. I take advantage of the loss leaders at both stores.

Funny...when I first this question in I didn't know I'd be working at a grocery store. Who asked that question about probable scenario for being famous and how has it worked out? Anyway, I go to the store 5 days a week and buy stuff when I need it, tending to shop small.

I do a serious shop about every two weeks, but pick up perishables like milk and fruit a couple of times in the middle.

Before my parents separated, it was once a week, on Saturday.  Now my Dad just gets the groceries as we need them, so basically he is going to the shop almost every day after work.

I love going to the grocery store! I go 2 or 3 times a week.

Lately every week. Use to go 2-3 weeks and ate out a lot or skipped meals. My efforts to cook more have resulted in larger and more frequent trips to the market.

I buy groceries about every 3 weeks. I live by myself and rarely eat anything big so I just grab it all on one day and make occasional stops for milk and extras.

Probably an average of once a week - whenever I notice I'm missing something.

As often as I run out of food. (It's a really irregularly scheduled  thing.)

I but groceries every week, usually. I do most of the shopping every two weeks, but I'm usually running out of something in between that time. Like, peanut butter, vegetables, deserts, that kind of stuff.

Quite frequently, as we just recently moved into an apartment and dont really have any ingredients on the rare occations when I actually cook, and we are constantly running out of milk and cereal (our breakfast food of choice.)

About once a week.

Tracy, 24

I got grocery shopping about every 7 to 10 days. Once in a while I may stop in to pick up one or two items in between.

I happen to work just a block from a large grocery store so I go much more often that I should, just because it's convenient! I do like the idea of having fresh foods every other day at home, rather than having to defrost meat before cooking it. I used to shop once a week or once very other week and stock up a little. Now I just do that with paper products and such.

We TRY to buy only on Saturdays but it seldom works. We usually  end up running to the store every other night.

My parents buy them every week because most of it is gone by then-in a family of 5 (4 of them guys) the food goes pretty fast!

Jeremy, 13

About once a week. There are 4 people in our family. And we bring our lunches to work/school and eat most dinners at home.

If "groceries" means the food I eat regularly, I suppose everyday. . .considering that my diet consists mainly of potato chips and diet coke. . .
