How often do you go grocery shopping?  Do you set a budget for every time you go shopping or for the month as a whole?  How often do you find yourself stopping at the store outside of your main grocery shopping?

Hi there!

I do my main grocery shopping trips weekly, planning around sales.  I do find myself making one or two extra trips because I may have forgotten something or we need extra produce or things like that.

I try to keep my grocery spending to $120-$150 every two weeks and that's for 2-3 people.  My DD is 5 so she doesn't eat a lot but I keep snacks in the house for school and other times.  Health and Beauty and Cleaning stuff gets an additional $20 each.
