I know ppl think we are nuts, but we pile the kids in the car and do ALL the shopping together. Neither of us wants to be left by ourselves w/the kids while the other "gets" to shop, LOL. We use it as time together as a family - taking our time and interacting w/the kids in the shopping cart. Stopping at a park or McDonalds in between places. It is usually an all day affair :)

Hi Deanne,
I think that is awesome you do it all togehter as a family like that!
I bet the kids love it as well.
I think stopping in between & doing something like you do is also wonderful!
Such a great idea & a fun way to spend time with the family :)

We shop together as well more times than not. Recently I did not have time to go grocery shopping and workout so DH volunteered himself to go so I could workout.

If we just need one small item when one of is making something, the other will run to the store.

Once a week, usually on Saturdays, we doone big shopping spree together where we go to local outside market and buy fresh veggies and fruits, cheeses and things like that. We live in Italy in a small town so it is nice to have a market like that close to your house and everything is good. That same day we would go to a supermarket and buy rest of the things we need for the house.

However, since I am not working now, everyday I go to buy fresh bread and if anything else we need for dinner that day.

Nice to see you sunnysideupinrome,

Well that's good you have gone together there.
I bet it is great having it so close to home like that.
Allows for many trips if needed
Great you are able to go now if you need something like that ;)

Today he had to go with my neighbour for shopping and he had to speak Swedish the whole time and he did try and he think he made sense.

Aww that's great he made sense in Swedish .. he is learning,
I think being around the language like that is a great way to get better at it :)
