~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~QUESTION OF THE DAY~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

How often do you go grocery shopping? Do you do a BIG shopping once a month and then pick odds and ends up every week or do you do a big shopping every week? On average how much do you spend on groceries a month?

I do my big shopping every 2 weeks. If I need bread or juice or if I forgot something I pick it up, but usually I get everything. The main thing I usally have to run for before the 2 weeks is up is litter.

On average including the little runs to the store during that time I spend about two hundrend dollars a month. It acutlly was more than that when ds was a baby on baby food and formula and diapers. Those things are expensive, so it makes it eaiser now that he's off all that stuff.

I do a BIG shopping once every 2 weeks and pick up odds and ends weekly! I would say I spend probably around $500 a month on groceries.

I try to go grocery shopping once a week, to two weeks. It usually ends up being every three days about. I spend way to much at the store. Sometimes up to $500 a month. Ok now some of you will think that is nothing, but compare your prices and taxes to mine sometime. There is nothing that frustrates me more than needing something for a new recipe and having to go get it, and the store not having it. I get that a lot up here. Especially in the fresh foods areas. Ok. enough babble.
