Observation 2 : Back then, I didn't meal plan, nor did I clip coupons.
Observation 3: The last few months, I get the dreaded "do I have to go?" question- and my answer was always "Yes- unless you keep Cameron while I go!" He did, and I went by myself.
Observation 4: I started making a list containing ingredients for about 10 meals (so we didn't have to go for another 2 weeks), and BOY has our bill dropped. I do get fun items too- but I hardly shop for anything that isn't on the list.
Observation 5: Last night- Jon went to Aldi's (a "discount" grocer- anyone heard of it?) without me, in search of some chicken nuggets. He spent $80 and came home with:
- 3 different types of chicken nuggets- dino shaped for Cameron, 2 bags of regular nuggets, and a bag of popcorn chicken.
- Popcorn shrimp
- Cheese in a can
- A deep dish pizza
- 2 regular frozen pizzas
- Pizza pockets
- Peppermint Coffee Creamer that tasted like Listerine
- 2 bags of chips
- some type of frozen "cheese" appetizer in a black bean shell (?)
- Pork rinds
How about you? who does the grocery shopping for your household?
