I was just thinking about how much I hate grocery shopping (I have to go after work), and complaining (to myself) how I’m the only one who goes. My husband has no interest in cooking or grocery shopping, but loves to eat. I love to cook, but dread the grocery store. How do you ladies handle the every-week task of the grocery list and shopping for it? Just interested.

We usually do it together, but once in awhile I do it without him.

ugh i do 90% of it! it makes more sense since i get off work an hour earlier, so i just go on the way home and then we can prep and eat when he gets home. but sometimes i dread the grocery store!

I make the list, and he calls me on his way home from work to ask what he should get (sometimes multiple times a week). We go to the farmer’s market on Sunday together. We also have a farmstand near our house, and I’ll stop there some days. I do most of the cooking, he does the dishes. I sometimes do wish he’d be more proactive about this stuff, but I also don’t really mind the compromise we have. If you’re unhappy, I think you need to talk about it. It can’t be that you do *all* the work and he does only the eating. Maybe he’d be more willing to do the shopping if you made the list?

We do it separately because we each like to buy our own things!

If i want to eat junk and get fat, I’ll let him go food shopping But since I don’t like junk food and he’d NEVER buy things like whole wheat pasta, low cal cheese, turkey, skim milk, lean pockets, or tofu on his own, it’ll end up being my job. Although he’s commented that we get to go together when we’re married….I’m sure that won’t last long.
i LOVE grocery shopping, btw. I find it relaxing and soothing to troll the aisles real slow and think about what I wanna eat all week. When my FI comes in town, I make it a point to buy stuff he likes though like orange soda. Except this past weekend cuz i was so busy…i made him egg beaters and boca and he was such a trooper. He tried it and made a face.

I typically do it myself, but he does on occasion as well. We do try to go together if we can. It makes it much easier to go together so that we both get what we want. 🙂

I do the grocery shopping b/c he hates it. I hate it too, but someone’s got to do it. If he’s home when I get back from the store, I have him carry everything in from the car and put the stuff away.
My sister and her husband have a deal where whoever does the shopping, the other one puts the things away, so both of them know what the new food is and things don’t go to waste.

I do the grocery shopping and cooking and he pays!! I have his Discover card just for groceries. I think that’s fair!

We go together. We kind of split up and get what we want for breakfast and lunch. At the end, we rally together and decide what we’ll have for dinner. There have been a few times where he’s gone by himself, there’s usually an abundance of carbs. I love him to death, but the man still hasn’t figured out that meatloaf, potato salad, mashed potatoes and garlic bread is a balanced meal.

I do all the grocery shopping and I only do it once a month. I have fun planning it out and trying to figure out what I’m going to be cooking throughout the month. It’s almost like a game for me to get things cheap and also to try new recipes. We used to go together but I think I enjoy going by myself because he is impatient.
