I really love and appreciate

my husband. He went grocery shopping on New Years eve at the commissary because I had to work. He fought the crowds so my day off would not be spent there and I am not complaining. BUT he spent over $300...which is our norm shopping for 6 humans and 2 k9's for two weeks........ as I look in the fridge and cupboards I just wonder where is the food he bought

(side not I really do appreciate him and his attempt) He shops with me a lot so I know he can do it but wonder what he thinks about when he goes alone

I'm sure he wonders the same when he goes looking for thousands of dollars worth of clothing in the closet

I hear you! DH is generally not allowed to go food shopping... He went a few weeks ago and spent $80 on one bag of groceries, but it was stuff he wanted, not really for the familiy. It went like this: (all proud of himself) "I got some stuff at the grocery store." "Umm, if it's honey and maple syrup, that's really for you, I don't eat it." Then a long pause. I still tease him because I spent about $60 for several bags of food that the 5 of us will actually eat all week. But it's the thought that counts...

see he falls somewhere in the middle of this. He did buy lets of fresh veggies so I can take my lunch to work. BUT then I question where is the milk.

I always just wonder how we've lived together for 30 years and he still hasn't figured out what types and brands of food we use. Granted, I do most of the grocery shopping and cooking, but he is the one that eats cereal and yogurt. Don't you think he'd have noticed by now that he eats the brand names of cereals because he doesn't LIKE the store brands? Nope.. "Look what I bought, it's $1 cheaper than the regular Cheerios!" Yes, but it's only a bargain if he'll actually EAT it! How does he not know what he likes?

If your husband went shopping at a commissary he should have come home with a ton of food. I went with my friend one time to the one she has privileges at and the prices are amazing! You should be stocked for a while if he spent over $300. Unless he just bought a bunch of snacks ?

I am too lazy to shop much anymore (working nights wrecks me) so my husband has taken on a bit of the grocery shopping. The money he blows amazes me. He is pretty clueless but I can't complain because I don't really want to do it. He's keeping us alive and the kids in lunch food for school (although I swear we would spend less if he just made them eat hot lunch every day). I try to keep my mouth shut when he gets the wrong thing or buys a bunch of crap we don't need or I didn't ask for. It's hard though . I don't think we have ever spent more than $200 at the grocery store, and we have a family of 6 too (no dogs, but a few hamsters).

I usually do the grocery shopping. There are a few staples I don't put on the grocery list as I always get them like bread, fruit and milk.

He went shopping once and didn't buy any milk or bread as it wasn't on the list. Considering he is the biggest consumer of milk with his cereal consumption he would know that we need milk without it being written out for him.

Perhaps he thought you got it from the cow out back oh no milking cow in your backyard ...where that ol milk comes from then

Sorry this would be dh.

My dh jokes that he got married to save money at the grocery store. I am "frugal". Lol. When the baby was born he made a single week trip. He spent 250.00. It was just him and me and the baby, the other kiddos were with relatives. Although we certainly were stocked up on chips and dip and beef jerky! He is wonderful, just stinks at grocery shopping.

I hate to complain because he really does a lot around here. There are so many things he doesn't expect me to do because of my bad back! He cleans the tubs & showers, vacuums, shovels, mows, takes out the trash, helps with laundry& I am sure there are more that I am forgetting. It just always amazes me that he is pretty clueless about the food he has been eating for the past 30 years!

My husband and DD went grocery shopping last weekend since I'm out of commission.

It's a good thing my DD went. She said he was going to buy wheat bread which no one but him will eat, wasn't going to buy milk, and walked right by the granola bars that were on the list.
He also came home with alot of junk food which I no longer buy and no fresh vegs which were on the list.

He will often buy the wrong thing - I think on purpose so I don't have him do the grocery shopping. but right now we have no choice. Maybe in another week or two I'll get the clearance to drive again and be around people again but until then he's it.

Cannot really complain about my husband, he just installed a whole house water softener and remodeled our kitchen!

But as a grocery shopper or cook, just no. He will stop for one or two things, but that's the limit. And he knows I buy organic produce, but doesn't seem to remember that when he is at the store. If he cooks, he over uses the salt and spices. Probably on purpose. But he's a great chopper! He bought us some really professional knives that intimidate me a bit, so it's a good thing.

I swear my husband and I have switched gender roles. He does the grocery shopping and on the odd instance I go, THEN we ask, where is all of the food for $100? (It is just two of us and I swear he can feed us both on $35 a week.)
