I always got my whole weeks shopping each week, it got a bit to much for me.

We have a food delivery approx every five weeks, for basic food cupboard stuff.

We shop in the village a couple of days a week if we need bread and or milk, and we go to the farm shop weekly for fresh vegetables etc.

When we were family, we shopped once per week, as a main grocery shop. Now I live alone, I pop out on a daily basis, to get my daily needs. My offspring now order online , but still have a once per week dleivery.

I hate shopping and I only go shopping when I'm desperate.

I buy a few items most days as I don’t drive and can’t carry heavy bags, it’s a social thing as well, I invariably bump into someone I know and chat or go for coffee

At least twice a week normally, but as we are still experiencing empty shelves and cannot always get everything that I want, then will revisit after a couple of days for the items I had nor got the first time.

I would say shopping is the most popular shared public experience
in modern Western society.
Followed by watching TV /Surfing online phone checking and eating and drinking.
So yes I enjoy my supermarket shopping at least 4 times a week.:)

We go once a week usually Tuesday. Supermarket is 20km away so you don't pop out for anything you forget.

Since March 2020 I've had a weekly delivery from Sainsbury's and have no intentions of ever going for a physical big shop again. I do pop into my local Farm Shop for strawberries, fresh locally grown vegetables and butcher meat on a weekly basis.

Twice a week, on one day buying essentials at a nearby discount store only and on the other day I also shop at a supermarket to get more variety, to buy beer and beverages and some things that the discount store doesn't have on offer.
