Lesson Learned

Yesterday I had to run a few errands, the last one being the grocery store, around lunch time, when I hadn't eaten since breakfast.

My list (roughly $15-20worth of things):
Bread
Milk
Salad
Cheese

What did I leave with??

$70.00 worth of stuff, mainly junk food!
Unnecessary Items include but are not limited to:
-mini powdered donuts
-string cheese
-2 bags of potato chips
-nilla wafers
-teddy grahams

I don't even know what got into me! I didn't audit my cart before the checkout, I just cruised right on up with a cart full of yummy but expensive crap! Never again will I go to the store on an empty stomach around lunch time, especially when I am trying to SAVE money. UGH! Stupid me.

Now I will be poor and fat! haha

Uh oh! I've done this before. But hey, at least you have some good treats now!

I've done that..oh goodness, what a mistake! :)

Sonja said...

hahaha I do that ALOT. I make sure to eat a LUNA bar before grocery shopping AND bring a list! I'm so consumed by my list that I just want to get it over with and leave!

That is what happens if I take the hubby shopping with me. But hey, poor and fat isn't all bad.

I guess what "they" say is true.

Josh said...

what!? I didn't know you got nilla wafers, I'm gonna go eat some now!

Jodie said...

String cheese is not junk food and would definitely qualify as a necessity...at least in my book!

Sarah Ann said...

I hate this! I tend to do this one A LOT. And my husband sure as heck doesn't help the situation. Lol.

I cannot go shopping when I’m hungry because I do the same exact thing! Nilla Wafers…yum!
