Checkin’ it twice

January 7, 2010


I’ve read about people who keep ‘lists’ on their refrigerator and when they run out of something, they mark it on the ‘list’. Well, it sounds like science fiction talk to me, but I decided to try it.

Lloyd and I do our grocery shopping on Sundays, and usually buy the exact same things every week. We really don’t need to have a list, but there have been the occasional head-slapping moments upon returning home when I realize I forgot to buy sugar, or that we’ve brought home yet another box of butter to add to the three boxes already in the freezer.

I must admit, this list isn’t complete, but it’s a good start. We circle the store (Wal-Mart), starting at toiletries, moving to house stuff (light bulbs/repair stuff), then over to groceries – like clockwork every week. I’m sure after the first time we actually remember to take it along to the store use it we’ll realize that it needs more blank spaces for fill-ins. I must admit, I was more excited to choose the fonts and make them silly.

Cletus, the slack-jawed yokel.

    I’m a little concerned that Lloyd has dragged you into the Ozark tradition of actually eating vittles.
