When I first moved to SD, I remember writing a blog post about how to manage grocery shopping, meal planning, and stuff like that..

It’s been about two years since then, and while I thought I had it under control, evidently, I don’t.

For awhile, we were buying a lot of perishables at Costco, but realized that we were throwing so much food away because it would go bad before we could make a dent in the stash..

We decided that we’d go grocery shopping for veggies and other perisables about once a week at a regular grocery store.  We’d plan what foods to make for the week and then buy accordingly.

Even THAT is proving difficult.

We were at the grocery store on Saturday.  I could NOT figure out what I wanted to make for this week.  It’s hard to decide on food ahead of time.

There are just too many options.  AND it’s hard to think about food when you aren’t hungry!

Maybe it’s because I’m a working mom, that I’m having such a hard time with this.  I just wish we could come up with a better system that doesn’t require a daily trip to the grocery store to get the veggies that I need for dinner that night.

I’m all for the freezing of cooked meals to have for future use, but since we don’t have a big freezer, we have no room for storage..

Any suggestions?!

I purchased this book at Costco when Little M was about 5-6 months old.  You can find it on Amazon by clicking here.

Once on a trip to Costco, we had Little M in the shopping cart.  I handed her several kiddie books to keep her occupied and she gravitated to this one right away.

It’s a soft book.  It’s foamy, for lack of a better term.  The pages are thick and sturdy.

Within the pages are pieces that can be removed and played with.  They are soft and sturdy just like the book.  They fit into the pages like puzzle pieces.  That’s Little M’s favorite part of the book.

Up til this day, she still loves to take the pieces out and play with them.  The pieces are a comb, a makeup compact, a cell phone, and a set of keys.  She loves playing with the phone. She pretends to talk on it.  It’s the cutest thing

The illustrations are cute and Little M loves to point out the dog, sun, trees and other objects within the book.

This book is perfectly girly, pink and full of girly things.

We’ve had this book for almost 9 months and Little M still hasn’t gotten bored with it.  She has lots of other books and toys, but she still loves to go back to this book and play with its pieces.

Little M and I give our stamp of approval!

The other week or so, we bought a box of those Uncrustables at Costco.  We pretty much breezed through that entire box.. it was addicting to eat!

We took a quick trip to the grocery store.. we bought jelly.. then.. the following conversation occurred..

Hubby:  Oh man.  We should have bought peanut butter and bread!
Me:  Huh? (I wasn’t really paying attention..)
Hubby:  Peanut butter and jelly.. to make an Uncrustable.. with the crust.
Me:  Then it’s not an Uncrustable.. it’s just a sandwhich…
