Re: Once a Month groceries?
We also have a long trip to the bigger stores and I do once a month shopping. I still buy produce and dairy throughout the month at the mom and pop type store down the road. I usually end up going about once every week or so. I just make sure not to buy a ton of random stuff there and just go in with a list and stick to it. I'm not sure I'll be able to continue the once a month stuff with my new car though as I've lost a lot of trunk space. I'm thinking of switching to bi-monthly and doing a separate big trip for stuff like meat at Costco and stocking up for a few months. That will probably cut a lot of the trips to the local store down as well.
