EXPOSED

The scene... Wednesday afternoon in a Costco line.

Boy you've got to just plain LOVE it when Costco sends out their coupon booklet, and you see all the things you need, but just didn't realize your needs, until you start cruising thru that booklet!!! So here I find myself with such a booklet in hand, waiting with all the other bargain shoppers in line. I am not even going to go "there" at this moment about the overly zealot rude adults pushing HUGE carts around and loading up on "STUFF".... NOPE, not even going to waste my breath on that one. So, I am checking out everyone's cart.... What is it that these people just need to be buying in mass quantities? Then my eyes turn to my wee bit of a cart!!! What does this medal wheeled contraption say about me???

A glimpse into who I am and who I am becoming......


Oh so very defining... Why this woman must be a large dog owner (52 lb of dog food), mother of a toddler (Huggies, size 4), person with major allergies (bulk supply of Kleenex), stressed out (large bottle of Mega Vit B complex) in need of a good night sleep (new pillows), health conscious (almonds, string cheese, frozen fish) and kid party gift buyer (Junie B book)....There are a few things I wished I would have picked up once I got all my "STUFF" home, treats!!!!

What does you shopping cart say about YOU???

You're already buying diapers!!?? I'm so behind...I haven't even started our nursery yet. I need to get into gear. I was so gung ho to get the nursery done when we first started this process, then reality hit with the length of time for the wait. At that point I put on the brakes and haven't taken them off yet. Pretty soon, I'll be actually running behind trying to catch up.

What does my shopping cart say about me? Well, first of all, it's CARTS, not cart. ;o) They definitely say I have babies, kids who love snacks and a family with a love for global cuisine. I don't think there's much rhyme or reason to my Costco carts, however. A map, a toy, a blender, mega pack of rice milk, Carter's pjs, and some books - maybe a piece of furniture once in a while. Right now I WISH my Costco cart could sport a Wii! I refuse to pay $400 for something that retails for $249. ;o)

well I'm actually not a Costco gal, I shop at S@ms, and I too go in for a thing or two and end up buying things just seem to "jump" into my shopping cart (usually after tasting the samples they give out, and I think "that's good and easy to make", but usually isn't when I get it home)...oh well, I can keep trying I guess.
