In general, I dislike shopping. All shopping. Grocery shopping included. This is why I try to limit my grocery shopping trips to twice a month: One large trip (like the one above) and then one smaller trip that is primarily for milk and eggs.

Most of the items I purchase are on sale at the store (since I don’t use coupons). However, because I have little storage space, I tend to buy what I need at the time. I always stay under my allotted $200 monthly grocery budget so for now, this method is working for me.
