I go 4-5 days a week. I like to use fresh stuff too. And, I never know what I'm going to want for dinner until that night.

Once a month seems crazy. Even if you refridgerated your greens they'd go all wilted, and I can't see ripe stone fruit lasting that long.

I do a largish shop once a week or fortnight or so for dry goods, groceries and the like. Fresh food like fruit and greens it would be twice a week on average, maybe three times depending on how busy I am. I'd like to stock up on tinned things and that when they are cheap but I am limited to how much I can carry on my back (no car).

It depends what I'm shopping for.

Every 3-4 days: fresh produce

Weekly: bread, soy yogurt, things that go bad in less than a month

Monthly or less: grains, beans, canned goods, tea, pet supplies, cleaning suppies, personal care items

Once a week...occasionally I have to stop in during the week if I want something for a specific recipe or if I completely run out of something I really need.

About 5-7 times a week. I found if I only buy what I need for that day or the next, then less stuff gets thrown out. I usually tie it in with other erronds or on my way home from school, so I rarely make a trip just to go to ther grocery store. Plus, I HATE putting away bags and bags of food. If you go shopping often, you usually just have a couple bags to put away at a time.

I usually go twice a week. Usually, it turns out to be a big shopping trip on the weekend, and just a quick pop in for specific items some time mid-week. Of course, both of those are trips to the big supermarket (Publix) near my home.

Since going vegetarian, I've also gone 20 miles away to the Whole Foods 3 times in the last 5 weeks, always on the weekend. Now that I have a better feel for what I'm doing, I won't need to make those trips as often. WF has a better selection of veg*n TV dinners and veggie burgers, so I stock up while I'm there, but I can get just about everything else at Publix. So I can probably get away with going to WF only once a month or so in the future.

I go shopping bi-weekly to stock up and then we normally make one trip during the week, usually spending less than 20.00.

I go several times a week depending on what sort of "kick" i'm on and how long ingredients for it will last. 3 times a week is usually my minimum.
