apart from fresh meat and milk. do you take all your other foods from home a shop before you go or to safe room do you shop when you have set up camp?

If we're of for more than a couple of days then we tend to take small packs of cereal,maybe pasta and stir fry sauces.As we spend most of our main holidays in France this helps because the kids can be funny at times so we know they'll eat what their used to.But everything else we normally get when we arrive. Everyone's got their own way of doing things so I don't suppose it really matters, the only thing from my point of view would be space in car. I'm also worse than the wife when abroad I love looking round supermarkets and hypermarkets, trying different foods is all part of the holiday for me.

I usually take mine with me as I usually have a rough menu plan for each camping trip. I dislike grocery shopping at the best of times so try and avoid it whilst I'm on hols if possible

When we're just going for a few days then we take it all with us but if we are going for a longer trip then we buy when we get there to save on space in the car.

ASDA delivery. As long as the post code is accepted, put notes in the box and make sure your phone is on. You can add charcoal, kitchen/bog roll etc etc. Long life milk, juice booze etc. For longer stays do it twice. For 3 or 4 quid why waste holiday time or cram into car, You can top up with nice stuff from farm shops.

It depends where you are going. I'm going to to a place next week where I know the basics are about the same price as I would usually pay but anything in a packet is much more expensive, and so I'm stocking up on those expensive things and taking them with me.

If we are going for a weekend we normally take enough to last the weekend but for longer trips we take enough for the arrival afternoon & evening and the following mornings breakfast. Then off to the local shops, Lidl, Aldi etc.

I prefer to shop before I go and take whatever I need with me, instead of having to go shopping after arrival.

Enough for tea and first breakfast then buy locally. But if just going for two nights we take food with us. For a week or more we don't have enough room n the car

Its a mix for us, always take a few items. But also check beforehand where we can buy food, both supermarkets and also local butchers bakers etc.

Also maybe just take a bottle of whiskey or box of wine, beer seems to heavy and bulky so usually bought near the camp site.

I hate wasting holiday time shopping for food, so I think we're going to try the Tesco 'Click and Collect' service this year. We'll order online and pick the food up on our way home from a day out.

We'll still pick up some more fancy bits of food and drink from local producers, but at least we won't have to spend time shopping for basics.

Buy local, fresh produce, you can have tesco/asda etc supermarket food anytime at home, get out and enjoy all that local produce on offer.
