Our family just rolled into town (at 1:30 this morning!) after a long but quick trip to Arkansas for a family reunion. We get together once every two years – and this year we celebrated our Nana’s 90th birthday! Look at this beautiful lady:
There were aunts and uncles and cousins (and even a doggie), food, and games all weekend. We all had lots of catching up to do!
We made it home just in time to do several loads of laundry, then send the teenage boys off to their first church camp of the summer. This leads me to my grocery shopping dilemma:
- We were all starving for fresh fruits and veggies after a road trip.
- Most of the boys will be gone all week.
I do not even know how to grocery shop for three people.
I am so used to buying half the store for my family every week that when I only have to buy for a few, I feel lost. I settled on “only” 8 pounds of strawberries, 4 pints of blueberries, 4 containers of raspberries, and only 1 watermelon and 1 pineapple. I got a bunch of mixed greens, carrots, peppers, nectarines, and peaches. I’m quite sure I bought more than 3 of us can eat. But after a week of travel food, we’ve been feasting on berries and greens all day – so maybe we’ll finish it off without a problem.
We’re also joining with friends to take a meal to our local mission tonight, so some of this fruit is going there. :)
Have you heard anything about Wal-mart taking away Price-Matching in your area?
I’ve caught wind of a new policy rolling out for Walmart in which they will no longer offer a price-match guarantee. Boo-hoo. Some stores are already affected by this, though thankfully, my store still price-matches – at least for now.
I can’t find any official information on which stores are taking away their price-matching perk. What have you learned about this?
I’ve become quite spoiled by price-matching, so to think we might not get to anymore is quite a bummer! We’ll see how it plays out, and if I hear any more, I’ll keep you posted!
With that, I’m off to enjoy some more berries and glasses of water to counteract the french fries I ate on the road last night. :)
