I have had some problem with fresh food going bad before I can use it. I was just wondering how many times a week do most people shop to avoid this problem.

I swear I responded to this thread...<br><br><br><br>
I shop about once a week, and sometimes stop at the store to pick up specifics.

Every day<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hungry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hungry:"><br><br>
I dont live very far from 2 grocery stores,<br><br>
and theres a grocery store very close to work as well.<br><br>
Im an addict, when i plan ahead, i still usually end up<br><br>
haveing to go back the next day for something else anyway.<br><br><br><br>
Today i didnt have any bell peppers or tomatoes, so of course i had to get some.<br><br><br><br>
I kinda like it this way better, Its easier for me to go to the store after work<br><br>
and say "i want ___ and ____ and ____ and lots of ____ for breakfast tomorrow,<br><br>
And these ______ look really good today, must have just got their delivery<br><br>
ill get some of those for lunch tomorrow,<br><br>
right now im in the mood for ____ and some ____ for dinner.<br><br><br><br>
It might be different if i wasnt surrounded by grocery stores all the time.

I used to shop once a week but now that I am eating a lot more raw foods I go twice a week. Things like bananas and lettuce just don't last the entire week.

1 X per week CSA food pick-up<br><br>
1 X per week Health Food Store<br><br>
1 X per week reg. grocery<br><br><br><br>
CSA & Health Food pick up are on the same day, reg grocery on a dif day, so Twice per week. I eat the really ripe or produce that doesn't keep as well first (ripe tomatoes, plums, grapes, baby spinach, etc) , and the produce that keeps better towards the end of the week (finally ripe tomatoes, mixed greens, kale, squash, etc).

It's hard to tell in our house. Seems we're <b>always</b> doing the produce shopping round here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

Bleh. I wish I could get to the grocery more often. Usually it's once every 2 weeks but lately it's been once a month or month and a half <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I just haven't had the time or money and it sucks being hungry and only having crackers or some other kind of bare bones food. I end up having to buy a salad at the food court at work every day because I don't have anything to bring with me. I try to run to the local health food store when I can just to pick up a few quick meal thingies and a few pieces of fruit or something, but that's not more than once a week. Basically, when we run out of fresh food, we rely on packaged/canned/frozen stuff until the next time we can get to the store <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blank.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":|"><br><br><br><br>
On the plus side, we just went grocery shopping tonight for the first time in almost 2 months so we've got a nice full cupboard right now.. I did forget bananas though, darn it...

<span style="color:#008000;">It varies, depending on what I want to make. Some weeks, I shop every day, and others I will shop 3-4 times. I'm not the greatest at deciding ahead of time what I want to eat. I live very close to 2 grocery stores, and a HFS, so I can walk/bike/drive easily.</span>
