How often do you shop for food?

I'm trying to get into the habit of shopping only every two days or so, as I've heard so many Europeans do. I like the idea of buying only what I'm going to cook for the next 3 to 6 meals or so, and ensuring everything is at its freshest. And during the spring and summer, it's a joy to visit local stands and farmer's markets as often as possible, and select freshly harvested produce.

However, it's really hard to shop often, when life is so hectic, and your parents gifted you and your new husband a pair of Costco memberships! It's sooo tempting to fill a massive cart with food to last an entire season, you know?
