Every week we go grocery shopping at least once. If I’m being honest, it’s often twice. And then there are days like yesterday when we go thrice in one day and not one of those trips involves a real, true grocery shop. Yesterday was exceptional and so, you know, generally fine, but it did leave me thinking about all of this time and money we spend at the grocery store.
Why do we go? Because we have no food. Every week we are simply completely devoid of things to eat, on the brink of starvation until one of us traipses the grocery store and carries home sustenance for the family.
Oh wait. That’s a total lie. We have tons of food–stocked cupboard shelves and a refrigerator that utilizes its door space to the fullest extent. So this week John and I (M is exempted…her food situation ain’t broke so we ain’t fixin’ it) are embarking on a challenge of sorts. We are going to make it through the week without a trip to the grocery store, come hell or high water or endless peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I’m going to post our concoctions on Facebook each day. Tune in there to see how we’re faring…and whether or not we end up eating M’s baby food out of laziness.
