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.

Take our 8-question "Gaga Over Groceries" survey to have your vote count in the stats -- and have fun shopping!

    My mother had MS and when I was a teen, she taught me to cook as she could not get around that well.
    When not teaching, I have been a cook at a summer camp- feeding 250 kids and counselors 3 meals a day for 8 weeks and baking 35 loaves of bread every three days, not to mention the sugar cookies and snickerdoodles.

    My husband of 12 years now has never stopped amazing me and even though I tell him to slow down a bit I guess he never will till he is called home. I really thought it was just new marriage and would wear off but it hasn't. He does almost all the shopping, cooking, house cleaning, vacuuming, scrubbing the kitchen sinks and bathrooms, makes the bed every morning and DOES WINDOWS. He is good with our kid's and is up before first light making coffee. In all of our time together he has never gone out with the boys and dislikes sports. He could care less about a TV and being a couch potato. He would rather be out hand washing the Caravan or fixing something. We eat a good home cooked meal every night and the kitchen is spotless when we are done eating and everything is in the dishwasher. All my girlfriends say..."well, if you ever get tired of him let us know" Sorry girls...I have a keeper.

    It used to be that my mom did all the shopping. After my sister and I got our licenses, my mom took that to mean that we were now able to go food shopping, and she never had to go ever again, especially when she started working part-time. Now that my mom works full-time and both my sister and I are off at college, our dad buys the food. He even cooks now too!

    My mum is the major bread winner, my father passed away and we dont live with any men, I do most of the grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning (I'm pretty sure that I count as one of the kids).

    i am the woman in the house and i indeed do most if not all of the shopping in my household.
    so... nothing wrong w/ that.
    men were always the hunters and women - the gatherers. since the beginning of time.
