LOL !!!! My organized friend says that I shop like that all the time. However, you have to understand what it is like to be her friend..... . If there is snow on the ground she either picks up the phone or she emails me and says STAY HOME. She is the type of person who would literally steal my car keys so that I can't go out in bad weather.
When it is hot weather .....like 90 degrees and hotter....she literally screams "Stay inside your house with the a/c and drink lots of water."
Why do I put up with her ? Because she is one of the very best friends you could ever want. She is 100% trustworthy and honest. She worries about me. ToniB says that my organized friend and my widowed friend are two of the best local friends a person could ever want.
So....I buy extras of things like meat on sale or veggies (frozen or canned) on sale. I stock up on canned food for Aurora. I am starting to stock up on Fresh Step for Aurora.
I try to buy Kleenex and the other brands on sale in the late summer/early fall. I watch the sales plus I use coupons for them. I go through a lot of them because I have sinus problems plus I cry a lot because of Mom.
I stock up on generic Tylenol also. I buy the big bottle of 500 tablets that are 500 mg. I used to get them at Harris Teeter and now I get them at WM because the price is better.I have them in lots of the rooms in the house. Please realize that you can't do things like that if you have small children in your house.
I keep at least 4 boxes of mac & cheese in the house for easy meals. I have a few packages of dry Knorr soup mix for quick meals. I plan to keep those frozen ham sandwiches that Mamasjob posted about.
