My DH shops a couple times a week for his favorite foods. I usually have him pick up from my list but there are some things I can't trust he'll choose what I want. The nearest grocery is about 5 minutes away so it is not a big deal ,,,

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

lol, a ten mile trip sounds like a big deal to me. Our grocery stores are all probably within 2 or 3 miles. Or just 4 or 5 blocks. Sometimes we go about 8 miles away if we are getting some bulk items for a party. All our other errands are all within blocks or a couple miles.

And we all lived happily ever after...

I usually go into town daily so I pick up what ever I need. It is a 10 mile trip so it isn't a big deal.

I usually try to do them when I am out for some reason, like Bible study or pickleball. I am trying to not use too much gas at a time.

We have like seven grocery stores, each of which have particular items we use regularly. Then there are the KMart, Walmart, BJ's, and dollar stores. So I have kind of informal routes where I hit two or three in a trip which usually means I go about a couple times a week hitting two or three until I get to them all. Since most of them are within five miles of home, it's really pretty quick and easy. I do most of the shopping since I'm retired and she's not, but she stops to pick up needed items on the way home from work, so it's pretty easy to stay well stocked using that in combination with online shopping.

My husband is usually the errand runner, since I'm busy teaching the kids.
He does it in groups if possible, but as desperately needed.

And we all lived happily ever after...

Do you run your errands whenever they come up or do you do them in groups to cut down on the number of trips you make?
