Grocery Shopping

January 12th, 2007 at 05:20 pm

DH received a $100 gc to a grocery store that I never shop in. It is one of those stores where you bag your own groceries and is supposed to be cheaper.

But what I find is that the quality of the perishables is low and their prices are often higher than the stores I do shop at.

I have no problem bagging my own groceries, however.

Anyways, we receive a gc to this store each year- so I go there once and make sure I spend at least the gc amount so I dont have to go back.

I would love to repoert that I took coupons and stocked up on some wonderful sale items for the year.

But that is not what we (DD3 and I) did.

We just had fun. I did buy a few bulk packages of what we needed...but I also bought things just because. DD3 has been wanting 'matching' shampoo and conditioner for a loong time...but we have a closet stocked with whatever great deal I could she scored on some items---and funny thing, the ones she picked were Herbal Essence and Suave (both pretty cheap)...when the closet beholds Pantene, Infusium and Aussie products....go figure. (Just because they match?)

All in all we did ok...and my trip to this store is done for the year.

But best of all was the fact that I not only felt up to it...but also enjoyed going. I hope this means I am turning the corner and that the past, is indeed, the past and can be ---well, left there where it belongs.

    Yeah, i prefer to bag my own groceries, in my own canvas bags, too The baggers don't always keep cold food with cold, and can be rough on the fragile stuff.

    Gosh, wouldn't that be a great lesson to teach DD3 - that cheap brands do just as good a job as the expensive stuff!
