    I'm not really in a routing. It depends on how much dh is home (which seems like never lately), if I'm going with new recipes, etc.

    But I'd guess that I do the big shop about every other week, and I go lots in between for fresh veggies, fruits, milk, bread, etc.

    My major grocery shopping is done every 2 weeks - but I have to go out maybe 3 other times to buy things that spoil or we go through real fast (milk, veggies, bread)

    However - we bought a deep freezer meaning I can buy a lot of bread, meat and frozen veggies and it's no big deal.
    I, also, just bought those green-bag (Debbie Meyer infomercial things) and I'm thinking they're a good buy - maybe I can actually save money this way

    I go once a week and get whatever is on really good sale on my list plus the regular stuffs like milk, bread, ham, etc... My grocery shops are never huge though.

    I was on a set schedule of every two weeks. However, now that I am working it can be kind of a hassle dedicating most of one of the weekend days to shopping so I sometimes break my list down and do a little 2-3 days a week on my lunch hour (only possible because we have a freezer and refrigerator at the office, lol). That allows me to have the entire weekend free to get stuff done around the house, spend time with the kids, etc. Plus, I kind of like shopping without the kids along (bad mommy, lol)

    Almost everyday. Generally I pick up whatever we are going to have for dinner on my way home from work. While I am there I grab anything we might need. I started shopping like this because I found when I would shop weekly or biweekly I would have to freeze everything. Then when I would pull something out for dinner in the morning to defrost, by the time I got home I wouldn't want it. So lots went to waste.
    Needs work.
