this is why I don't take DF grocery shopping!

January 28th, 2010 at 07:22 pm

Yesterday afternoon DF and I went grocery shopping. I was meant to go on Wednesday, and I usally go with a friend and we share a cart; take about an hour to walk up and down the aisles and make fun of various items while catching up and getting our weekly groceries. It's odd, but we've been doing it for nearly two years now so I'm used to it.

So DF and I agreed that I will not ask him again, for atleast another year. The reason he doesn't like going is because I make him push the trolley Big Grin And the reason why I won't allow him to come anymore is the amount of extra items he put into the cart that we don't need:

Chocolate: $2.69
Chocolate: $2.69
Jelly Crystals: $0.92
Jelly Crystals: $0.92
Chips: $1.19
Chips: $1.89
Ice Cream: $5.88

Total: $16.18

While it doesn't seem a lot, it is when you think about the fact that I am trying to NOT overspend this month on groceries! *sigh* It is just that these are all items that I do not buy...

I mean... honestly, who buys Jelly Crystals if not for their kids or a party???

    My dh is exactly the same way. Now that he's retired he goes to the store more often than before... a budget buster for me.

    What are jelly crystals? Are they the same as jelly beans?

    My DH is pretty similar - just substitute beer and beef jerky for jelly crystals and chocolate and that would be his list. I say you got off cheap. Smile

    lol baselle - beer comes out of his fun money Big Grin
    analise: jelly crystals are what you make jelly out of -i don't know what else you would call them?

  4. Analise Says:

    Oh, I think your jelly crystals are like our Jello. You mix w/ water and refrigerate for a quick dessert.
