Things sure have changed since the kids were young and I shopped once/week. Nowadays, our day-to-day schedule is much more fluid, the kids are rarely around, and I have a lot more time since I don’t work outside the home. I go to the grocery store 2-3 times/week. And, rarely, do I need $75 worth of groceries.
Today, I was determined to use one of the coupons before it expired. I would just buy more coffee and steel cut oats and All Bran – things I know I’ll go through. But I hate to buy extra items, especially when they aren’t on sale!
Then I had a great idea. Instead of buying extra items, I would have the cashier ring everything up, see how short I was, and then buy a King Soopers gift card to get me to $75.
