i'm curious to know how you all do your menu planning? and do you go to more than 1 store? if so, how many stores, which ones, and for which grocery items?
we go to the store several times a week, and on those big grocery run days, up to 3 different stores. and with gas as high as it is, this routine is getting old!
target/walmart for paper and cleaning products, and some packaged grocery items like granola bars, cereal, juice, snacks, lunch box items, and our favorite brand of bread. (it's almost 3 dollars more at chain groceries). and TJs for some dairy, meats, and other misc. stuff like above.
then whole foods, farmers markets, or independent local butchers for our meats, fish, and certain produce. and then there's costco..... that's a dangerous place, lol!!
we go to the store/market several times a week, especially for some fresh produce - if it's monday and i know we're having corn or spinach on thursday or friday, then i'm not going to buy it til that day.
so with all that said, what do you guys do? and i'd love for you to share anything you think helps you with this.
