When we were researching and writing Cut Your Grocery Bill In Half, we discovered a couple of studies about our grocery shopping habits. Here’s what we wrote.
In 2000, A. C. Nielsen produced a study showing that consumers were slightly reducing their trips to the grocery store. The trend went from 94 trips per year (1.8 trips per week) in 1997 to 90 trips per year (1.73 per week) in 2000. In 2008 a Food Marketing Institute and Nielsen survey revealed that the decline in grocery store visits has stopped. Now they have found that Americans are going to the store more than previously: 98 trips per year or 1.9 trips per week.
How often you go to the store will definitely affect your grocery bill. See how you stack up to other folks who have taken this poll.
We want to see if Nielsen and The Food Marketing Institute were correct, so if you have a second, could you place your vote?
How many times do you go to the store?
This poll was initiated in 2010 and more than 2000 people have voted. When we moved to a new content management system in 2016 we reset the poll to track current trends. If you’d like to see the results from the previous poll, click here.
