Monday QOTD

How often do you go to the grocery store? Do you have a set day that you always go on? If you have LOs, do you take them with you?

I end up going about every 2-3 weeks. I don't have a set day. Since being pg this time, I don't go as often & sometimes I just get my mom to pick up some stuff for us when she goes (she lives close). I have really started to despise taking DD with me unless its a super fast trip (which it usually isn't).

I go to the grocery store once a week, usually on Sunday morning. I often take DD, who usually complains bitterly about having to go, but then enjoys it at the store. I suppose it doesn't hurt that our store gives away free balloons and samples of cheese to kids Wink Sometimes (like this week), I'll go once in the middle of the week to pick up something quick. I got some bananas, but only enough to last a few days. DH and DD don't like them when they get too brown (and I don't like them at all! Haha!).

We go every 2 weeks. No set day just whenever we acutally get to it.

Sunday is our shopping day. We usually make a day of it, go out to eat, etc... It has always just been me and DS, so yeah, he has always come with me. It really slows you down, but I don't have any other choice. That is why we make a day of it.

We do the "big" shopping once a week, but then of course I always have to go for little odds and ends. DS is obsessed with the Price Chopper (our grocery store) He just loves it. We take him with us, usually sits in a cart, but now they have little mini carts for kids....we tried that out last night. DS kept saying "My like to go fast"..then he would proceed to run into people, displays, DH lol. It was super cute, but its definitely a 2 man task!

How often do you go to the grocery store? Once a week

Do you have a set day that you always go on? No, I like to go on Sundays when DH can go with me, but it's not set in stone.

If you have LOs, do you take them with you? Usually. When DD was a lot younger we had a super nice grocery store that was open 24/7 about 3 miles from our house. I'd cook dinner for me and DH and he'd take over the bedtime routine while I went to the grocery store. After Owen is born I will most likely try to either go on days when DH can go with me or I'll put S and O in the hourly drop-in care while I go shopping (when he's a little older... at FIRST first I'll probably put S in drop in hourly care and take O to the store with me) Thankfully DD has *finally* gotten to an age where she's slightly tolerable in the grocery store. From about 18 months to 30 months, I'd have rather sawed of my right arm with a plastic fork than taken her to the grocery store LOL

We generally go once a week when all the sales start and then we pick up odds and ends throughout the week. (we live close to downtown). I do take DS with me and sometimes he's pretty good, other times he drives me crazy! I'm thinking when DD is here I'll go shopping when DH is home from work, take her with me and leave DS at home. I'm not sure if I can handle both of them!

We go once a week for a fairly big shop, then I'll pick up things as we need them throughout the week. We always go on dh's days off, and dd comes with us.

I usually go on a Monday, at the moment both girls are with me. But come School time I will go alone until baby is here. I then always have to pop in once or twice for fresh fruit etc... If I am away or feeling really rough I order online and get it delivered but not very often.

I so wish I had this option where I live.

Every Saturday

We go every Saturday like clockwork. We live a quiet and very predictable life. Some people say we're boring, but I say that boring and being bored are underrated. Smile

I do a BIG trip once a month then several small ones. Up until summer it was always Cole and I. During the summer I usually waited until my mom was home and then took just one of the older 3. Now that all 5 are in school it'll just be me until little Miss gets here.

We do a big trip once a week. We go through fresh produce pretty quick and don't have a lot of food storage space, so we HAVE to go at LEAST once a week. Blah. Anyway, all the kiddos always go with me for the most part. There are rare times when I go by myself, which is always nice, as I can get done a bit quicker! For the most part though, it just works out much better for me to take the kids, so that when dad is home we can all do things together.

We do one big trip a week and maybe a few quick ones when needed. I always take my kids. I never give it a second thought, because they are always extremely well behaved in public (wish they were that good at home :)). We usually do it Sunday afternoon, but when that isn't possible we go Tuesday morning. I've been making DH tag along lately when we hit Costco, I have too much trouble picking up big stuff right now.

We go probably 2x a week and we always have Clara with us. Sometimes the boys come home but they are old enough to stay home on their own and love to be at home by themselves so we often leave them. (We have more room in the car for groceries when we leave them at home too!)

I hate going and put it off as long as I can. I also have to go to the store for milk or something else at least once a week in addition to my normal trip. Depends on the day/time/what's going on if I take the girls. Sometimes if I'm tired and it works out I leave them with my mom. They're both at a rough stage grocery store wise. Now Fiona's in school so I'll probably try to go when I just have Rowynn.
