or would you end up killing one another? :toothy:
Gabe and I often grocery shop together and with the children. Sometimes he shops alone and once in awhile I shop alone.

I almost always shop with dd or alone, if dh does go along he heads for the magazine racks and I have to fetch him when it's time to leave.

I taught him well:curtain:

Usually I shop alone. Sometimes Dh will go with me, but not willingly.

When I get out my coupon organizer, he makes himself scarce!

I shop with him very rarely!!!!! He is usually pretty good about following my list but he doesn't understand why it would take very long to shop and he gets impatient and then obnoxious and by the time we leave nobody likes him!!!!!!:D

Nope--I do the majority of grocery shopping alone (or with a child in tow), and he stops for an item or two on the way home from work if we run out of something.

I shop with Dh only when I have to. He rushes me too much.

Not if I can help it. DH likes to go shopping, but he makes me crazy. He'll push the cart, and I always have to go hunt him down when I have an arm load of groceries because he's busy looking at something or 3 aisles over helping a little old lady get a bag of chips off the top shelf (he's 6'5", so he's a little old lady magnet, LOL!). So he slows me down way too much and he sees no problem with spending $5.00 on cookies from the bakery or a $3.00 loaf of bread from there, or almost $4.00 for a gallon of chocolate milk because he can't say no to ds. He's worse than a kid himself.

Me too, and I tend to overspend. :)

Actually SO does most of the main grocery shopping and he does it alone. I shop about once a month for special stuff we need and I too tend to shop alone or with dd.

Nope, while I'm shopping with dd, he sits in the van with the boys and waits for me. Its too hard to get someone to watch the kids, and he does enjoy driving me to the city (which I don't mind at all), so he reads while I shop.

Mostly with dh- he used to work at a grocery store and knows the bargains better than I do.

Also, since he is home all the time- he does the majority of the cooking- so he buys the majority of the food. :)


We generally go together on my day off work and tag team the specials and limits per customer.
