It varies. Sometimes I go alone, sometimes with the whole family and other times with 1 or both of my kids.

Re: Do you Grocery Shop with your kids or on your own

It varies. For big trips I either send DH alone or I take our oldest to help pick up things that my pregnant body does not want to reach or bend for. For quick midweek trips I take our two youngest with me, or have DH pick things up on his way home from work. DH rides a motorcycle so if it is too big for him to carry home on his bike, such as toilet paper, I have to go to the store.

I go by myself most of the time. Dh stays home with the kids. Less stress for everyone and I can watch the register instead of the kids to make sure prices are correct and my coupons work.

Alone for big trips (or where I'm keeping track stuff to do beer rebates). With the kids for littler trips.

I voted for DH since I do not grocery shop or cook. He goes alone, usually after the kids are in bed.

I am a SAHM and I grocery shop with the kids. I must be weird because I don't mind it and don't find it difficult.

It's either just me or the whole family! Occasionally it may be me and 1 kid.

Every other Sat my DH, son and I all go. My DH cooks but I do lunches and we both feel like we need to be there.

I don't do the grocery shopping. Dh does, he usually takes a few kids.


I make a list, text it to him and send him off. I hate grocery shopping.

We wait until Thursdays or Fridays because our oldest is in school and our ex has the girls (usually). I can barely get through the store myself without panicking... I am not about to take the kids with me, too!!
