I used to have two separate shopping schedules every week. Saturday or Sunday is market day for me. I replenish raw stock including chicken, pork or beef meat, sea food, vegetables and other ingredients that would last for three to four days in the fridge. If no time to cook I would open up canned goods or just run to a nearby store that sells affordable cooked meals everyday. They always save the day.
On the other hand, I do grocery shopping for hotdogs, bread, milk, on separate day usually on Sunday afternoon. Hubby takes care of the kids’ vitamins, his maintenance medicine, testoripped and vitamins. I stick to my weekly budget unless the kids went shopping with me.
