I’m making inroads on my once a month shopping. So far it looks like once a week serious outlay of money. I’ve made a food inventory and I’m in the process of arranging it by store (costco, vons, henry’s) and by order of shopping in said store. I like lists, I’ve told you this.
And now, after several weeks of shopping with half-baked lists, I went to Costco on Monday and got everything that was on my list. Which really wasn’t so bad, considering I was doing catch-up shopping and one month’s worth of shopping, plus a little extra because I really have no idea how much toilet paper we use in a month.
But then we had to add in $50 worth of medication. My family has been sick and has depleted my supply of tylenol and cold medicine. Oh, yeah, and then there was that day that I forgot to put the shoebox of medicine back in the closet after dosing everyone before bed. Luckily Lia emptied out the full bottle of tylenol cold and the full bottle of benadryl onto the sprayable patio outside and not on the carpet or down her gullet. Santa Maria.
But on top of that $50, it was time to renew our membership. Another $100.
It didn’t feel very good, no matter how I reassured myself.
But we will see how it all pans out. I’ve put a ticker in the sidebar to keep me honest. And because the tomato is so nice and round and red.
I personally think I’ll need to go back before then. After all, I didn’t really buy enough bread for my pbj loving family. But I don’t have the freezer room.
I need a freezer. And nice big stand up freezer. Yes, I’m sure that’s the answer to all of life’s most difficult questions.
