Do you shop at Costco (or Sam's or some other warehouse club)? Sometimes I go there knowing I am going to spend a ton of money. Other times, I think I just need one or two bulk items and that will be it. Today was that day - I just needed some ribs for dinner on Tuesday. Oh, and those mega bottles of ketchup because for Big E, ketchup is a food group all its own. So over $150 later, I was walking out of that place. And I didn't even buy much - ribs, ketchup, Skyline Chili, a couple of things for wrapping Christmas gifts. Oh yeah, some frozen broccoli, popcorn chicken and extra virgin olive oil. That place is impossible to spend a few bucks in.
I am a 40 something chick, married (to Motorcycle Guy, AKA MG) and raising three boys (Big E, Sous Chef and CJ). We live in the burbs, which I am still adjusting to, even after 11+ years, and counting!
