When do you do your shopping? During the day with the kids at school or another time?

I prefer to do groceries on Thursday mornings because its quiet and everything else on Saturday/Sunday. I tend to take dd with me, unless I'm running out for something quick.

If I can, I'd rather do my groceries and at least some errands (if they are small things) without the kids. I think of it as a personal vacation. Who knew going to no frills on a Monday evening alone could be fun lol

No set time. My kids are older so they don't usually come with me and with them all being in school I usually go during the day anyways. I go about 3-4 times a week. I know...too many trips but I never ever know what I feel like for dinner...lol.

During school hours for sure. The baby is much easier to handle than my busy almost 5 yr old ds.

DH goes with one or both of the kids on Saturdays lately. Whatever we need during the week (usually fruits or veggies) he'll pick up at the market after work since it's so close.

I've rarely taken ds shopping because of his special needs. Its hard on him and me when he does come so its better for all if he stays home. But this year I've been trying to take him more because he's a teenager now and he needs to learn shopping. Still I make it small trips and infrequent.
