I’ve been to get my groceries today. Or, as the Scots say, messages. Sure, my life is uneventful to that extreme when going out to get groceries is an event. Also, I’m running out of subjects to blog about (see my recent toilet paper post), so I figure I’ll blog my grocery bill today. Yes, I’m serious.
Before punctuating my post with a delightful unordered list (aka
<ul><li></li></ul>), let me state my utmost satisfaction that that’s it done, groceries for another week at home. I’ve found that I can carry about a week’s worth of groceries in one take (I don’t own a car) and since I always pay about the same amount for my weekly shopping, I was able to calculate how much I spend on food per month.
One one hand, my findings led me to Google how long one can last without food; on the other hand, I was almost grateful (I’m never grateful, so almost is the key word here) that I still have money for food. And for rent even. Until it runs out. Meanwhile, however, my grocery bill. It was 1.6 foot (50 cm) long, but most of the paper was taken by advertising nonsense (on my defence).
I bought, in the same order as checked in by the cashier:
- frozen fish fillets
- frozen shrimps (I should bloody stop buying fancy food)
- mints (as a smoker, I need a mouth sanitiser for when I approach people)
- frozen vegetables, corn mix
- frozen vegetables, broccoli mix
- frozen vegetables, carrot/corn/pea mix
- whole bean coffee
- regular pasta
- corn pasta
- cookies (damn the cookies, I always buy cookies though on diet)
- rice crisp bread
- rye crisp bread
- fish spice mix
- rice crisp bread with paprika seasoning
- fish spread
- wholegrain baguette
- fresh champignons
