Groceries = holy CRA*
Monday, August 04, 2008
So in order to get my family on track, I printed a week's menu & grocery list from the SP site. and I shopped pretty faithfully to what was on the list. There were only a few other items - laundry soap, toothpaste, some extra snacks for my 5 year old (very few).
My cart was full but not any more so than my usual grocery shopping, although usually I shop for 2 weeks at a time and this time I shopped for only one week.
and then i got to the check out . . . and i got the bill. Holy FREAKing Crap! My grocery bill was $305. THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS! FOR A WEEK!
how in the world is anyone supposed to eat right when it costs taht much? talk about sticker shock!!!! but I am trying to follow as much as i can from the menu I printed out. Next week I will just stick to our normal type menu and just try to keep the portions down.
