I would say every other week to get bulk groceries. Darling Husband & I will spend a couple hours shopping. Otherwise, he runs to the store for me on the way home from work when I need something for dinner.

I grocery shop about once a week at one store (mainly to get fruit and vegetables) and about once a month at two others.

It’s about every 3-4 days. Mostly for the fresh produce (love me some fresh cauliflower and lettuce).

And we don’t have a lot of space in our fridge or freezer to put stuff like hamburgers/steaks away. I wish it could just be once a month at Costco!

Once a week. I notice that if we go more than that we overspend on things we didn’t need.

I go on Sundays usually. I also have Blue Apron, which makes it so I only have to get enough food for two dinners since I get the other two nights’ meals delivered. The only reason I really go to the grocery store is to get chicken or other meats for dinners and eggs for breakfast. I usually have enough leftovers from blue apron/dinners that SO and I can both pack lunches for the week, and we always go to get pizza on Friday nights, so I don’t have to worry about that night.

I go 1-2 a week. I buy a lot of produce and fresh meat and it goes bad quickly. It’s so annoying, I hate grocery shopping!

weekly for a big load, a couple times maybe if I need something here or there.

We go once a week for produce and to restock pantry items. Once a month or a bit longer we do Costco and stock up on meat as it’s cheaper there.

Once a week unless I unexpectedly run out of something. I never understood people who go grocery shopping every single night for what they are going to cook for dinner. I hate grocery shopping SO much.

Usually once a week to the supermarket and/or the farm stand, then every few months we do a big trip to Costco.

MsPlucky :  We go weekly. Every weekend. We will go to the gorcery store, but when bulk items run low, we replace the grocery store visit for BJ’s and replenish. Which is probably once every 2-3 months for paper goods, non-perishables, freezer items and packaged food/snack items which some will get replenished by weekly grocery trips.

About every other day, I tend to just pop into the shop on the way home from work a few nights a week to pick up dinner or something we forgot or a random treat I just decided I wanted. It’s a little more expensive as it’s the ‘metro’ version of the shops but I don’t want to give up a big chunk of my Sunday afternoon.
