Necessities, adding up to too much moola!
So yesterday, I venture out to do some errands. I was planning on making a beer lime roasted chicken for dinner, but the chicken is still frozen. Darn! I had to get some other things, so I made a pit stop at Shop Rite. I figured I'd see what sauce was on sale and make spaghetti. The only sauce I had at home was the LARGE bottles, not the smaller ones I use for spaghetti. Guess it's been awhile because I have no smaller one left...ooops. So I'm walking down the sauce aisle all ticked off that I have no sauce at home, and my Prego Q expired. Figures. So I figure we'll have cereal. We do that once in awhile, have a 'kid' night and have cereal and ice cream and cookies for dinner. So I decided last night was a 'kid' night. So then I figured that we needed milk. I have to have the Lactaid, and the big jug was almost $7...YIKES. And of course, not on sale, no Q's. Once in a blue moon it goes on sale. never get a Q. So i pick up the smaller container then walk off to get cottonelle wipes and TP. The wipes were on sale, so I grabbed one, then I go to the TP. It was originally 9.29 for a 12 pack, on sale for 7.99 and I had a Q, so that worked out. I check out and it was $13 and change...for 3 things! The day before, I went to A and P, got 25 things for 8 bucks and change....Geesh. What is this world coming to?
