i'm single, can't stand grocery shopping & work from home, so i've got this system where i do the big stock-up every 3 to 4 mnths

24 double-ply of tissue, 6 pack paper towels, 90 count garbage bags, big family size of Gain clothes detergent (yes i'm a Gain FREAK)LOL, dish&dishwasher detergents.
various meats, marie calonders lasgne, meatloaf & chicken pot pie frozen dinners, a few digorno pizzas, frozen veggies, 12strawberry juice bars.
3 12pk can for $12 deal on pop, juices & @ least 11 to 13 cases of water
 (i live in arizona DON'T mess with the tap)
fill the pantry: rice, beans, different shape sizes pasta noodles, cans tuna, salmon&mackerel in cans, seasoning salts, powders, cooking oils, canned goods.
deli section: small size macoroni & potato salad, 1rotisserie chicken (eat in salads & with quick side dishes), deli fried chicken( put in freezer bags in freeze like banquet frozed), fresh sliced deli meats (turkey, ham, chicken, roast beef)
fresh vegetables & fruits
needed cooking utensils

i new to arizona (from chitown) have family & friends YET make sure to make my own way (as i live around EVERYTHING) so when i go to the right stores galore or when i go to the left BAM same thing HOWEVER i do this so i can spend my time doing quality things in life.

I stock up on certain items, especially non perishables. I've stopped buying and freezing meats. I buy meats from the local butcher as needed. And I buy whatever fresh veggie is in season; frozen veggies are for backup

I actually sort of like grocery shopping (when money is a surplus because I love gourmet and organic stuff along with fresh everything)

If it were up to me we'd go once a week or so because I like my meat fresh and organic. But boo can be a butthole sometimes so we go once every 3 weeks typically but have to end up going back anyways because he ends up rushing me and we forget things.

So yeah, once every three weeks and we don't really buy in stock. I'd like to when it comes to things like trash bags, toilet paper, dish soap, paper towels etc. but we don't have a lot of storage space in this apt.
I only buy things like pasta and frozen veggies in stock. Sometimes meat we end up freezing because our grocery store has a 4 meat items of whatever you choose for $20 now.

This wouldn't work for me since I like to buy fresh vegetables and fruits that are in season.  I could buy frozen but I rarely cook with it.

This wouldn't work for me since most of it would spoil (I don't eat tv-dinner).
I do grocery shopping 2-3 times a month.

I am single also, and stock on non-perishables from Costco, but depending on the items they can last anywhere from 6 mths to a year. However, every week I have to buy my fresh Fruits and Veggies
