When there were seven of us living under one roof, I was always grocery shopping.
The more I bought, the more they ate.
When my sons hit their growth spurt, my grocery bill doubled. I would buy lunch meat meant to last the week and they would come home and eat it as a snack. I was buying two to three gallons of milk a week.
So, after awhile I would shop four times a week so that the groceries would last longer.
Makes no sense,
Intellectually I know this, emotionally I find myself plotting my grocery buying strategies as I get ready for two of the "food eaters" to move back home.
I know that spending my time and $$ on gas to shop four times a week so that it appears that the cupboards are full makes no sense. I should just do a big shop and that's the end of it...
It is truly... the myth of sisyphus
