Living at the grocery store…

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!!

Ha ha...I stop at the grocery store a zillion times a week now too! But, I hardly have any food in my house....NOT! It wouldn't do you much better to live in the grocery store though...because of the impossibility to get everything you need at ONE store!
