Emile had I sat down to do the meal planning over the weekend which is something we haven’t really done before. But with me working and commuting and he working a long day, meals were becoming carb festivals laden with more calories than either of us wanted. So we planned.
I would do the grocery shopping in the suburbs at my work and Emile would do the prepping. So, I hit Safeway tonight – strategically picked because the first Tuesday of the month is Customer Appreciation Day. That means you can pick: 10% off or 20X the airmiles.
I purchased items like a normal person – I am not one of those crazies with 500 coupons for .50 off toothbrushes. I bought only what we needed for dinner and restocking our pantry.
