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 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!).

My October Space
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.
