So I think that those of you who have ever lived on your own will be able to relate
to what I am about to write more than those of you who have not. That doesn't mean that you only-at-home-livers won't enjoy it, you just won't relate as fully...
So when I lived at home I took small things for granted: soap, toothpaste, toilet paper, not paying for shower water, and FOOD! Now that I live at number 5 Hillside with 5 girls I do not enjoy such luxuries as free food in abundant quantities.
I have also come to realize how frustrating grocery shopping can be. Above is a picture of me looking at the sale adds at the store, trying to see how to get the most for my money-I try to be a smart shopper. Below is a visual of me deciding what frozen foods to buy.
So I guess I live a life of "extremes". I am usually on one side of the spectrum or the other-no middle ground. This idea manifests itself when I am grocery shopping. A vast majority of the time I go shopping when I am famished (and EVERYTHING sounds good) or I am too full (and I can't imagine ever being hungry again and don't want to buy anything!)
Every time I get food I try to get a good variety: sweet, salty, hot, cold, fast, ingredients to make dishes, hearty, light and snacky, et cetera. As I am shopping and paying I feel successful, but that usually changes when I get home and start putting food away. I can spend 10, 20, 60 dollars on groceries, yet when I get home and put everything away I feel like I have just as much to eat as I did prior to shopping. How is that even possible?!!! IT DOESN'T EVEN MAKE ANY SENSE!!!
As a side note:
My little brother went grocery shopping with me and I made him take all these pictures. At the end of our venture he said, "Lindsey, I think that you live your whole life around your blog..." I think that for the moment that is true, sadly...
