With the cost of groceries skyrocketing, I try to come up with ways to cut back. I keep a magnetic pad on the side of my fridge and anything we need, we write it on there. Chad and Vince were always saying “get this or that when you’re at the store” so now they know to write whatever they need on the pad.
The things Chad added to my list were Vitamin B pills, mixed nuts, cereal, goat caramel, condensed milk, body wash, Crest Pro Health Tooth Paste. I can’t wait til he starts buying his own groceries.
This is the condensed milk Chad likes. He puts it on his ice cream. I can’t say that I blame him. I could eat a whole can of it but it surely is convenient just to squirt it out. I mean . . really . . you have to eat the whole can once you open it but I’ve never minded doing that!
The “goat caramel” is just awful! I haven’t figured out if Chad truly likes it or he knows it’s safe . . I won’t eat it. It definitely has a goat’s milk taste. On the bottle, it says “With Real Goat Milk – Milk Caramel Spread”. Yuck!
How people are affording to feed a bunch of kids is beyond me. After buying groceries yesterday, this is what the downstairs (overflow) fridge door looks like. This will all be gone in one week — 4 half gallons of orange juice, 2 gallons of milk (and there’s already a half full gallon of milk and half gallon of OJ in the upstairs fridge). The Dr. Peppers are mine though . . Chad doesn’t drink soda at all.
My grocery bill will definitely shrink when if Chad leaves home.
