Yesterday I went shopping at Giant for a few necessaries. I came home with six bags of groceries. Not just six regular bags, but six reusable bags. When I was ready to checkout, there were two lanes open other than the self-checkout. One had three people with just a few items and the other had two people with alot of groceries. I chose the line where the people had many items. The person running the lane was a middle-aged white man whose name is Don. I don't know where Don is from but he had a drawl like none other. He was extremely friendly and very capable. He bagged my groceries perfectly. Didn't complain about me using the re-usable bags. Carried on a conversation with me as he worked. I was very thankful for he friendliness. This is what I came home with.
My perfectly full six re-usable bags. Not too full, but not empty either.

This is what was in the bags.

Spaghetti sauce for the spaghetti that we had last night, with 5 extra jars. Tuna for tuna salad for Titus and I. Gluten free rice krispies and Fluff marshmallow for rice krispy treats for Titus. Chips and dip for Joseph. Salad greens, green onions, and oranges for me and just a few other things. I didn't find any GREAT deals, but the deals I found were good and helped me gather the items for the next two weeks dinner. Oh yeah! and ground beef. Extra lean, but still...ground beef. We had meat sauce for our spaghetti last night.

Ethan's January issue of Ranger Rick was the green issue. We usually get plastic grocery bags and reuse them for lining waste cans and disposing of diapers. But now that the diaper use has temporarily departed, we've been getting way more than we need. So Ethan brought me a massive reusable shopping bag home from an Aldi's trip with Gran. I think that I'm going to get a couple more and I should be set.

I am going Wegmans today for gluten-free foods. I actually like the process of writing out a weekly menu and shopping for the food. Am I weird?

I have got to put some bags in my trunk!
I never remember till I'm ready to check out.
Either I have 3 kids keeping me busy or I'm so happy to escape them that I just run!
