Grocery Store Run and Diet Coke

Tomorrow is my normal grocery shopping day but since I haven’t been to the grocery store since Friday DH had to make a run tonight.  I sent a very detailed list – milk, rice milk, Chex cereal, and lemon pepper seasoning.

He brought me a surprise home.  A 20 oz Diet Coke.  It was a nice thought and even nicer that he didn’t break down and buy 2- 12 packs.  I consider this a treat and not a slip up.  He said he almost bought me a bag of chips (remember the only chips I can eat are $5) but it wasn’t on the list.  I appreciate his thoughtfulness both in buying the single coke and leaving the chips at the store.



  1. From both a diet and money perspective, the chips at the store was great. I find too that the fewer times I hit the store, the more organized I am when I go and the less I spend. Thanks for stopping by my site!! Happy Wednesday.

  5. @ Jolie – without the Diet Coke I don’t seem to need the chips. Go figure.

    @HS – Beer cost more but the main reason is after one beer I would be drunk.

    @Sharon Rose – Sweet husbands are the best.

    @Jpkittie – you are right – it’s the simple things
