I am okay with that though. I wanted to try the Angel Food box and I will be giving a review shortly. The grocery shopping trip to EW Thomas was a last minute decision. EW Thomas is a little country store about 3 miles from my house. We decided to … [Read more...]

Renae's Shopping Trips

For one, I have been quarantined to the house since my oldest has been sick for the last couple of weeks. The other reason I haven't been out shopping is that I really didn't need much.

Is "Easy" Better?

Yesterday I was out grocery shopping for a party I had last night. As I was going through the store, I was organizing in my head the many things I had to do before five o'clock. I wondered into the meat department thinking, "get chicken that is ready to go; make it easy". I had planned on chicken kabobs. Right there staring at me was kabobs already done. I was tempted but then looked at the price. Doing some quick math, I realized that it was not worth spending the majority of my grocery budget … [Read more...]
