Adventures in Grocery Shopping

in Products, To Buy / To Try

Confession:  I Even Bought Two Extra Canvas BagsToday I made the ridiculous mistake of going to Whole Foods without a list. My intention was to pick up some milk, onions, and something to make for dinner. Well $130 dollars later I came home with some surprising purchases. Yes, I impulse shopped till I dropped. Usually I do this sort of thing with clothes, but today I managed to be “manipulated” into buying Cranberry Cheddar Chesse (what the hell am I going to do with that?!), Butternut Squash & Vermont Maple Syrup Ravioli, and Kashi’s new 7 Grain Party Crackers. The crackers really got me coming and going because once I read the package and noticed that they were serving them with slices of Brie and green apples I had to go and buy those too.

This is an excellent example of why I try to use PeaPod as much as possible. I just can’t be trusted among all of those organic goodies! Please make me fell like less of a duped consumer and tell me I’m not alone — what ridiculous things have you tossed in your cart recently? At the very least the lovely Hänni is coming to visit soon. Maybe I’ll just feed it all to her. Mwah ha ha!

You’re SO not alone in finding yourself indulging in splurging (a British word??) on organic goodies – I can’t go into Whole Foods without coming out with inexplicable things such as charcoal crackers for cheese, or samphire or ostrich eggs or whatever.

What is worse though is when I go into Whole Foods when I’m hungry. That leads to a whole world of financial pain.

Thanks for visiting my blog by the way. And I love your writing – is making me so hungry that I think I might need to make a trip to Whole Foods…

Hi Emma,

Not yet. I’m working on that brie with the apples today and watching Football. Maybe cranberry cheese will happen next weekend. How do you eat it? Just on crackers?
