Ok… so I just came back from yet another trip to the grocery store. I think this is probably my 5th or 6th trip this week. Now I’m not talking about running in for a loaf of bread ( I don’t think I have ever just run in for a loaf of bread), and I certainly can’t use the express lane when I visit the grocery store. Oh, no I can’t seem to get out the door for anything less than $50.00 and most times I’m just shy of $100. Besides the fact I am spending a small fortune at the store my house is bursting at the seams with food. I really need to get a grip, before I go broke. When you consider the fact that I am only shopping for two people (and 4 fur children) this is more than ridiculous.
Besides stopping for fresh vegetables, I could probably skip grocery shopping for, maybe six months or more. Both of my freezers are full, so much so that I dread looking in them, I’m going to have to start storing some of my canned / packaged goods in cupboards in the garage soon since I have run out of space in the kitchen (I’m sure hubby will be thrilled with me invading his garage).
Despite having all this food I still can’t seem to make any headway in planning meals and getting organized in that area. I think that’s part of the reason I keep shopping. I don’t know what I am going to cook /eat and it seems when I do pick something, guess what there is something I don’t have. I’m not sure how that is possible, because I think I have just about every item in the grocery store stored in my kitchen, so I just keep going back to the store and buying more and more stuff in hopes that someday I’ll have everything I need to get this meal planning on track. By the looks of it that will only happen if I can move into the grocery store. Then and only then will I have everything I need.
Guess I’ll go put my groceries away now, stare at all this food and hope that I’ll finally have a light bulb moment that will get me on track!!
