Important Friday Night Post
I am starting to believe that learning to grocery shop well is a skill some people are simply not born with. I am in my mid 30s (ok - late 30s) and make a trip to the store every week. Lists are made, cupboards checked, menus planned. I don’t think a week has passed where I don’t have one of the following issues:
1. So much fresh food left that something will surely get wasted. The waste drives me nuts.
2. Absolutely nothing in the house half-way through the week
3. Forgetting an item just important enough that I am forced to go to the store mid week where I inevitably purchase more than I need, or get junk food, or get wine/beer we really don’t need.
4. Decide to stop at Target to get milk and walk out with 2 new shirts, some candles, a pair of shoes, a book or two, new headphones, and gummi bears.
Much like folding a fitted sheet, I fear this is a skill I shall never master.
