Grocery Shopping Fumble

27 Aug

So, being that yesterday was Wednesday, I made my way to the grocery store.  I ended up going rather late, about an hour before the store closed, competitor ads in hand, but without a list…needless to say, it was a disaster.  I just couldn’t get myself together.  I walked aimlessly through the store, picking things up that were on sale in the ads, but not really making much headway.  I want to share my shopping fumble with you:-)

After checking out the cashier was very excited about how much I saved, but my daughter who accompanies me on my shopping trips, patted my back and said “you’ve done better”.  My sentiments exactly.  We all have our off days:-)
