What jumps in your cart?

  1. Ok, so I went to the grocery store today... starving. We all know that's a bad idea.

    My question is... when you're hungry, and at the grocery store... what do you buy that you wouldn't normally? I bought Fritos, brownie mix, and Reese's cups (none of which I would normally buy). I made myself put back peanut butter m&m's, french silk no bake chocolate pie, and a boatload of other stuff.

    Makeup or shampoo/conditioner. lol, seriously I always manage to wonder over to the "bad place" at the store.

    Food wise--those cookies you just pull apart and bake, more frozen pizzas, something Little Debbies.

    Double stuffed Oreos seem to jump in a lot!!! HMMMMM sneaky little buggers!
    Those little pints of ice cream with funny names like "coney island waffle cone" and "concession obsession" and "Caramel sutra" manage to jump in too! OH! our local grocery has a bakery that packages "single slices" of cake - they are HUGE and they Jump in all the time!! Seems I'm always hungry when I smell the bakery stuff baking!!!

    Anything from the bakery or the deli...pastries,cakes,pies...and then I usually don`t eat them all,justa few bites, and then they get pitched...waste of money for sure......And tend to 'stock up" when somethings on sale..I mean it`s just me and 2 cats...Why on earth do i have a 20# sack of pinto beans???If I put my mind to it could probably eat from the stuff in this house for at least a few months....Pack rat mind set....

    Chocolate for making something warm and homemade, like chocolate chip cookies.

    Brie and a fresh-baked loaf of French bread, any chocolate-covered cookie by those damned little Keebler elves, other naughties from the bakery: fresh-baked banana bread, or cornbread, or cherry tarts; something ready-to-bake like those Pillsbury orange sweet rolls; or something greasy and disgusting like tamales or enchiladas or fried chicken.
