I HATE Grocery Shopping

I do.  If I hate one thing about being an adult (more than bills, of course), it’s grocery shopping. There’s nothing good about it.  I scowl going there.  I scowl coming back.  I scowl when I’m home and done.  I hate grocery shopping so much, that it’s beginning to make me hate food.  I make myself go once every month and a half.  And I spend about $100 (that’s with toiletries and other various things that I need).  And it KILLS me.

So here are some of the reasons I hate grocery shopping:

I hate weaving through the aisles.

I HATE pushing a cart-especially the janked up ones.

I hate the mood most people are in at the grocery store (me included).

I hate when I see that the price of something has gone up.

I hate that it takes so many raw ingredients to cook a good meal.

I hate buying fresh fruit and vegetables because they go bad so quickly.

I hate buying food that requires a specific cooking tool.

I hate the long lines at the check-out.

I hate the way most cashiers put food in the bags.

I hate reloading up the cart.

I hate putting all the groceries in my car (they spill out of the bags sometimes).

I hate carrying them in through two locked doors on my apartment.  All by myself.

I hate putting them away once I get them in the house.

And I HATE HATE HATE that when it’s all said and done, I have nothing to show for my money (besides the fact that I’m alive).  And to be honest, I’d rather save three grocery trips and buy a really expensive purse.  At least I’ll get to see it for more than a month and a half.  Or some clothes (which would probably be smaller sizes if I skipped three trips to the grocery store har har har).

I don’t know what I’m going to do when I have to grocery shop for a family (maybe I won’t have one just for this reason).  If I have to go every week, I’ll shoot myself in the foot.  And the grocery bill will multiply by like 4!  NO NO NO.  I won’t do it.

I’ll stick to my freezable veggies and my bagged apples that take a month and a half to go bad.  I’ll make meals out of saltines, ketchup, and sliced cheese.  I love cereal, which is great, because I only have to buy milk and cereal.  And I buy almond milk because I am lactose intolerant, and you know what?  I’m so cheap that I MIX IT WITH WATER TO MAKE IT LAST LONGER!

I hate food.  And I hate grocery shopping.

Which is why I’m making Mike take me tonight when he gets to town, because he seems to enjoy it.

Happy Friday, and on a wild tangent, YAY WILLIAM AND KATE!
