How to grocery shop in 12 easy steps (Ha!)

  1. Go through grocery flyers
  2. Look through coupons
  3. ... and search out internet coupons
  4.  Go to five  (or seventeen) grocery stores
  5.  Pick up loss leaders
  6.  ... and free with coupon stuff
  7.  ... and stock up stuff that's too good to pass up
  8.  Unpack groceries until fridge and cabinets are full to busting
  9.  Figure out 7 meals everyone will eat with this mismatch of chicken wings, motor oil, Ranch Dressing, and toothpaste
  10. Feel proud of yourself
  11. Watch as your kid opens the fridge and says, How come we never have anything to eat in this house?
  12. Sob uncontrollably

That is my favorite when they say there is nothing to eat. Ugh!

Thank goodness for Joe--he does the shopping! (Hooray!) But it is nice because he buys yummy stuff for himself and the kids that I would not buy. It's a win-win for everyone. :)

Kind of makes you want to fend for themselves.

Sounds like my husband and me. I'm the one saying "There's nothing I want to eat!"

I'm used to help myself with any food I can find in the fridge when I was a child :)

Sounds frustrating! I wonder when my kids will do that to me...

If I can quote the ever amusing movie Uncle Buck- McCauly Culkin's line "I'm a kid, that's ma job"

They don't actually fully grow into their eyes until somewhere around age 34, I think. I heard that somewhere anyway. ;)
