Today was grocery day.
I asked my husband to take me.
I had a list.
He said "I don’t think we brought in enough recycled bags!"
He went back to the car for more.
The check out girl asked "How long will these groceries last you?"
I said "About 4 weeks."
I would still have to come back for milk or bread etc. in between.
Total bill? $304.00
Look on husband's face?
We pushed two carts to the car.
He put them all away when we got home.
I did the math for him.
$304.00 divided by 4 weeks? =$76.00 per week.
$76.00 divided by 21 meals? =$3.62 (rounded up)
Feeding 2 people for $3.62 a meal? = $1.81 a meal per person
Breakfast out this morning? $21.00
$304.00 is a lot easier to swallow now.
Sometimes they need a reality check. :)
