I love to grocery shop. Seriously, it’s one of my favorite things to do. It probably looks like I’m wandering around aimlessly, off in La La Land, but really I’m just enjoying myself. Sometimes I even wear my earbuds (usually to avoid screaming children) so I get even more out of the trip.
And while I love to grocery shop … there’s one thing that really, really irks me. Once I hit ALL FOUR stores (!!!) that I frequent on a grocery mission, haul bag after bag after bag after bag into my home, put it all away and collapse on the couch … I start a new list.
I always have a list going. I turn on the Food Network, and realize I forgot cottage cheese. Flip open one of my magazines featuring a recipe, and see that I accidentally crossed off hot sauce when I hadn’t actually put it in my cart. IT’S SO FRUSTRATING.
This is a short post. But it’s something that bugs the HELL out of me.
There’s no way I’m alone on this (or maybe I am?). Do you make a new list as soon as you get back from the grocery store? And how many stores do you visit in one shopping trip – is four too many?
And now I will leave you with this because posting without including pictures feels really strange. If you got all riled up reading this like I did writing it, you will need to calm down. Here:
Better? Yeah, me too.
