My Grocery List


I must go the grocery store. I needed to fill our dwindling supplies.

Should I use the car or walk? The sunshine gave me the answer - a walk. I am not really fond of driving! But walking, exercise is always good.

My initial list goes like this:

Liquid bath soap for my husband
Bubble bath soap for my husband
Liquid bath soap for the kids
Olive oil
Eggs
Toast
Gouda Cheese
Joghurt for the kids
Salami
Maultaschen - a German version of ravioli

I dont want to buy so much as I would be walking, and that would mean a 10 min walk, plus I am taking note of the heavy package back. I dont want to be dragging myself home or killing my back.

Anyway, I shopped, I paid, I walked home.

In the end, here's what's in my shopping bag:

Liquid bath soap for my husband
Liquid bath soap for the kids
Olive oil
Gouda Cheese
Joghurt for the kids
Salami
Camembert Cheese
Bio Biscuit
Pringles
Cucumber
Bacon
Nectarine

Let's see. I crossed out eggs, maultaschen and toast because I recall seeing them in our basement ref; I kicked the bubble bath out because they only have it in a big container (heavy!).

I got the bio biscuit because the kids love it. The Pringles because I love it. I've added Bacon and Nectarine because we all love them.

Here's something curious though -- for my husband's liquid soap, I chose something that has joghurt mixed with berries. Remember, this is a bath soap, huh! I hope the bees wont hunt him down :-) As for the kids, I got them a bath soap that reeks with almond oil, aloe vera and 1/3 lotion.

Oh, I could have bought more. Who could resist the Italian biscuits on a discount? Or the new fruit joghurts. And a nice pair of slippers or the lingeries on sale? I had to, my bag is full and my shoulder is aching.

now, now, that is a good tip--walking plus a list. but that is, only if the grocery store is within walking distance, unlike the supermarkets here in manila which are located in a mall.

and gosh! to think that i do groceries for a large household!

oh, i am one ahead of you kasi sa manila ang bahay namin is also near the palengke :-) but with a large household, not recommended, unless you bring the whole brood!
