What can we say? We're gaga over groceries! While we shop for our favorite snacks at the store, we often wonder if our grocery store etiquette is the same as others. Do most people sneak in samples at the candy bins while deciding whether or not they're going to buy the goods? What do you do when the cashier gives you too much change? And is it normal to go grocery shopping three times a week? We're finally going to find out.

    I typically buy things as I need them. I live walking distance from a grocery store (2 actually) so there is no sense in buying food way in advance and letting it spoil. Why eat food that has been sitting in the fridge for a week when you can get food stocked earlier that day?

    It's easier to keep fresh ingredients in stock from week to week than from month to month.

    I dislike going as often as a few times a week.

    I couldn't give two hoots about when to get shopping but once a week is the norm in the household.

    I make my hubby do the shopping for the most part. He enjoys it and I hate it.

    I used to go more, almost daily, just picking up what I needed for dinner or lunch the next day. Work hours got to be too much though. I did eat better when I shopped often & I saved money.

    I try to keep it to once a week, but that's rarely the case.

    I need to ask my wife, she does all the shopping. It's a hobby for her.
    She visits 2 or 3 or more stores everyday, though usually never buys anything. All kinds of stores, but she shops at 4 or 5 different grocery stores each week- each is good at something different. Does that count?

    I use public transportation, so I pick up a few things everyday after work. I buy a lot of my heavier routine household items, like T.P., laundry detergent, etc. online and with Walmart's 99 cent per item shipping, it is cheaper than hiring a cab.

    I'd go less than that, but some things I can't leave for my ex to get. He goes several times a week which is fine, it's his money he is spending.

    I can't afford to eat right so I shop once a month. Yes I take samples, I am paying for this over priced food. If anyone gave me too much change i would give it back.
