Food Shopping

You know when you go food shopping, once a week or whatever! Do you go into autopilot and buy the same things week in and week out or do you vary it up. I know its a weird question but i done the food shopping the other day on my own as i couldnt sleep and found myself walking round Asda at stupid o'clock in the morning. I came back with that much different stuff to what my mrs would normally buy.

And another one, a friend of my mums goes shopping every week and buys the same stuff if he needs it or not, stuff like a jar of coffee, cases of fizzy pop, tubs of ice-cream, and hes got a lifetime supply of washing powder, and he eats the same stuff week in and a week out, he must use the same shopping list every week.

    Always varies for me!

    There are a few staples I tend to buy most times but that's down to preference and not habit.  I never have a shopping list with me, and if I do I pretty much ignore it lol.

    Probably 80% the same each week, but I always end up with a few bogof deals or whatever that I didn't plan to buy.

    Staples (turkey, veg, salad, eggs etc) plus ingredients for whatever cheat meal I'm making on the Sunday which usually ends up being something of the baked variety.

    Very similar every week

    I do an online shop once a month, always the same stuff, meat, pasta, rice etc. Just reorder the same basket. Top up with milk and weekend treats as needed.
