    Are you cooking together? Whoever doesn’t have to cook should pick it up

    I say SO, because if he stops for 10 minutes, he will still get home at 5:20.  If you stop for 10 minutes, you won’t get home until either 5:25 – 5:40.  Either way, SO gets home faster.

    I say SO, by the time you get home with the groceries, it will be much later than if he just quickly stopped on his way, even though you have a 30 min head start. You can start dinner earlier and not feel starved while grocery shopping, and thus less likely to pick up a snack to munch on the way home (I do it all the time)

    @Laurenplusalex:  +1, that rule makes sense.

    The commute isn’t someone else’s problem and shouldn’t be a factor. When I travel for work, I have a plane to catch and that’s a long ass commute 😛 FI almost always gets home before me, so I make the stops at the store (that way he can spend time with furbaby). Whoever feels like it, I guess. I don’t think it would be an issue.

    If you each pass by different stores, I would say whoever passes by the store closest to home should stop.

    We usually have the same situation and it’s usually whoever decides on what we’re having that night that will stop at the store and get what we need.

    Sense or not– I would just stop myself because I would get 1029457 phone calls needing directions on where it is in the store, if I needed the smaller or larger size, if I want regular or reduced fat, if we are out of dog food… and it would take me 2.5 seconds to find it and be out vs him taking 25 minutes to buy sour cream.

    Whoever didn’t do it last time/whoever does less household maintenance in general.

    I cook so I pick up the groceries, even though sometimes I wish DH would because he works from home and can pop out to do it. It’ just easier and quicker if I do it since I know off the top of my head what we need.  He contributes to the household in other ways.  

    Since you say you cook together then I guess you guys should take turns.

    @Mrs_Amanda:  Ha, yes, this! I once spent 30 minutes on the phone with my husband while I directed him through our local Kroger to get what we needed…this was when we were dating, so I probably had a little more patience then. Now I prefer to go myself and just get it done!

    To me it makes more sense for SO to stop. And my SO would volunteer since we’d end up getting home at the same time. But I’d probably still go myself! To avoid the phone calls asking where things are in the store lol.
