Slice of Life: Grocery Shopping

“I need to pick up a few things at the grocery store.  It won’t take long,” I state closing the car door.  Twenty minutes later, I return with five bags in my hand.  Not bad for a quick trip.  Not bad … until I heard the grocery teller say, “$82.47 please.”  Eight two dollars and forty-seven cents.  I shook my head as I headed out the door.

My goal was to get some healthy foods – fruits, fish, and other meat.  Blueberries were three dollars; strawberries were two dollars and seventy-nine cents.  I believe that my purchases are essential, providing good nutrition for my family.  I just wish my purchases left more change in my wallet.

    Grocery shopping is such a universal topic. How true this is. I would much rather lose a chunk of money to some luxury item. Food, underwear, socks–these things should not cause serious damage to our checkbooks. Well put!

    We have been trying to eat healthier, too. It’s frustrating how expensive that can be!
