1.  Do you go to the store or have it delivered?

I go.  I get a little skeeved at the idea of other people picking out my food.  

2.  If you go, do you have a normal day or days that you go?

Whenever I'm able.  

3.  Chain, local or big box commercial store?

Usually chain.  Our favorite local chain was bought by Martin's and they are horrible now.  I usually stick with Kroger or Trader Joe's. 

4.  Do you go to more than one for your groceries each week?

Sometimes I do.  I usually end up going once or twice a week, and sometimes will grab a few groceries at WalMart or Target if I happen to be there for other things.  

5.  Do you budget or just spend whatever?  Would you like to share your average grocery bill?

No real budget.  We usually end up spending about $150 a week.  

6.  Name one thing that you have seen rise in price lately.

Peanut butter

7.  Is there one thing that you buy each week without fail?

Half & half

1.  Do you go to the store or have it delivered? Both. I go to the store and pick out what I want and pay for it. Then someone brings it to my house for me. I have to be careful not to carry too much.

2.  If you go, do you have a normal day or days that you go? I usually always go on Saturadays, but I also stop by during the week for this and that.

3.  Chain, local or big box commercial store? Local stores.

4.  Do you go to more than one for your groceries each week? Yes.

5.  Do you budget or just spend whatever?  Would you like to share your average grocery bill? No budget, and I do not keep track. Dh does the book-keeping.

6.  Name one thing that you have seen rise in price lately. Can't think of anything. They are concerned about deflation in the EU.

7.  Is there one thing that you buy each week without fail? Frozen raspberries.

1.  Do you go to the store or have it delivered?   Go.  I need to SEE the meat and produce to know which cuts and pieces to buy.

2.  If you go, do you have a normal day or days that you go?  No, just never on Saturday.

3.  Chain, local or big box commercial store?  Chain and local.  Hate big boxs like Meijer and Costco.

4.  Do you go to more than one for your groceries each week?  Yep, and I go to the butcher and the bakery, too.

5.  Do you budget or just spend whatever?  Would you like to share your average grocery bill?   I don't have a budget, but I only buy what I need.  I never buy much in one visit, because I am not a slave to a meal plan, and I don't want things going to waste.  A couple pork chops will still be edible if we decide to have a salad today, and go out tomorrow.

6.  Name one thing that you have seen rise in price lately.   Avocados and milk.

7.  Is there one thing that you buy each week without fail?   Whole wheat buns with oat bran.

    Tomatoes, fresh greens, sweet bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots, potatoes, fruits, dairy. But especially tomatoes, and in the spring/summer, always always always strawberries. I buy 5-6 pounds at a time, sometimes twice in the same week.

    1. Go to store.

    2.  Creature of habit.  Saturday morning is grocery shopping day unless I have other plans then it usually moves to Sunday morning.

    3. Regional chain.

    4.  The bulk is done on my Saturday morning trip but I drive right by another store on the way to work.  I will stop there for a good sale or if I need something mid week.

    5. I do not budget.  Hard to figure out an average because I will stock up on sale so it can vary quite a lot. 

    6. beef

    7.  milk, cheese, lettuce.

    1.  I go.

    2.  Usually Monday or Tuesday.

    3.  All of the above, lol.

    4.  Yes and I also get other items from different sources.  For example in the summer we have a garden.

    5.  Loose budget and you're right, I shouldn't have asked for an amount.

    6.  Butter, that's what made me think of the question.

    7.  Ds2's favorite chips.
