I feel like an average trip to the grocery store tells so much about where you are in your life. Do you buy a lot of groceries or eat out most of the time? Do you go to wal-mart to save as much money as you can or would you prefer to just pay more and go into a Tom Thumb for the better layout, produce and bakery items? Are you purchasing healthy/produce or mainly just snack items?
Here’s my un-edited grocery list for this week…which I purchased yesterday after work at the ever dreaded wal-mart. I’ll also note that I would rather grocery shop hungry and chance “add-ons” over going later with kiddos.
On the list:
Cars (the movie) or Batman toy – for birthday party boys were invited to Friday.
Green Leaf Lettuce – salads/sandwiches
Bread – gotta have sliced bread for sandwiches
Can of Diced Tomato – to make salsa
Ripe Tomatoes - to make salsa/salads
