Water is not my favorite beverage. In fact it's my least favorite. (So bland and watery!) I have to find ways to make it more interesting.
My sisters and I will often buy bulk items and split it and the cost between us, 10 pounds of potatoes would be much too much for just DH and I. But split 4 ways it's just enough. When one of us sees a bargain, we'll call the others to see if they need or want to share.
Although in general 'everything in moderation' may seem to be sound advice, for some (like me) certain foods must be off limits completely since I can not yet control how much of it I eat. Let's face it, Frito-Lay was right in that old TV commercial, you can't eat just one.
