How Often Do You Do a Food Shop?

Ask a Question

How often do you do a food shop and do you do one large one with top ups or how do you all work it? I am cutting back this year

Dieting in the new year so will be less but still at least once a week for some sort of shop.

There are a lot of shops in my area, so I prefer to shop most days for fresh items.

I just buy things as I need them. I don’t do a big weekly shop because I’m not always at home every night for meals so was wasting a lot of food. So now I buy things as we need them

We’ve been budgeting and meal planning for a good while now, which means one weekly food shop.. but now I’m on a diet, which means I need more fresh fruit and veg which only seems to last a few days and then I need to get more 🙄

My husband works in a supermarket so he always comes home with stuff I’m sure we don’t need! do a big shop every two weeks? But in between he’s always bringing stuff back as obviously fresh fruit and veggies don’t last that long!

Try and do a big shop to last a few weeks. Then we usually do a top up shop if we are desperate.

Once a week we do a big shop and then just pop to the shop during the week if we need to.

Most days , small amounts, usually different stores depending on what we want, or what is on offer somewhere.

Usually do a shop once a week and then pick up any bits that we've run out of through the week if needed.

One 'big' one for the week with occasional top-ups if needed. Generally buy for planned meals rather than just random stuff.

We do a big shop once a week online for delivery, this allows me to meal plan for the week better. I usually pop into shops 2 or 3 times a week for fresh items. Veg / milk / bread etc.

I do several shops throughout the week, usually as I’m near all the shops and I just top up as I go along
