I'm going to rant. I'm sorry for all of the people that read this blog to get a good chuckle at some of the stupid things we do. I'm going to rant. (Deep Breath)
HAVE YOU SEEN THE PRICES OF FOOD!!!!!!!!
Me and Hubby went to Kroger's today. Hoping to get a few things. Not a whole buggy full, just a few things. The food didn't cover the bottom of the buggy. IT COST ME $58.57! I know it may not seem a bunch of money for people who pay 100s of dollars a week for food. But the thing is, I don't. I usually get the off brand items, the basics, and if, and only if, something is on sale, I might buy a name brand item. I know how much each item cost usually before I go. Why, because I usually get the same items. Cheese, milk, butter, (you can tell I don't have a milk cow)flour, sugar, you know, basics. I know how much things cost. A 16 slice pack of cheese use to be 1.54, now it was 2.24. Wow, what a jump! It wasn't just one item, it was 70% of them.
So now that I have seen this, I'm planning my garden for this spring. I don't know how to make spaghetti sauce, but I'll learn. I made salsa this summer, but not enough. Never again. Hubby will learn to like summer squash.(okay, I said that because I just wanted to see if he will actually try it instead of snarling his nose at it.) We are going to plant potatoes for the first time. Yep, I'm actually going to PLAN the garden.
Okay, I am done ranting now. I feel better. Pheeew.
So until next time......
Small Farm Girl, ranter.
