We have never really gotten into a grocery shopping routine. You’d think, after almost twenty years of marriage, that we’d have some sort of a system, but no. One of us believes in eating every last thing out of the cupboards before shopping (“Can you believe I made an entire dinner from cans?”) while the other believes that the task should be shared equally and not just dumped onto one person.
The end result is that we sometimes go weeks without shopping for food. How, you might ask, can a family not shop for weeks? Do you want to know our secret? Volume.
Yes, indeed, when I shop, I shop. Tonight, for instance, I bought so much food that we literally couldn’t get it all into the refrigerator and freezer. Luckily, there was some tofu and a carton of milk that were ready to go, so I made it happen.
And, as I said to Quinland, we will definitely eat a lot of vegetables this week, because all the other food is hidden behind them.
- I’m grateful! that we have enough money to buy too much food. I know we are richly blessed.
- I’m lighter! by a couple of catalogs, a few cardboard boxes, and a cleaned-out car.
