Guess what I did?

I FINALLY went to the store today! Sheesh!

I have to say that I learned something from this experience.
When you think that you have no food in your house, you actually have a lot of food.

I was really shocked when I got through the line and my total was $86 and some change. Granted, I didn't buy any meat because I usually buy it at Costco and I have enough to get by for a couple days. But, I think that a huge factor in the small total was the onset of autumn. Sounds crazy, I know, but hear me out.
I hate cooking in the summer, it's too hot, no one is very hungry and I lose all motivation to move when the temperature reaches 100 degrees for the 976th day in a row. So as a result I buy a lot of convenience foods. Well, when the weather cools off I revive and I get hungry! I also dredge up some cooking motivation and voila! I buy less convenience foods therefore less processing and packaging equals less money!

So, scooch back off the edge of your seat because here is what you have all been waiting for....the after picture!
Yes, I still have the box of wine. Which, by the way, is left over from the 4th of July. Don't ask me why in the hell it is still in my fridge. I guess I'm saving it for an emergency.

Oh and check out my fruit bowl still life. Hee Hee

Thank god, my grocery bill will go down now also. By the way you can take the stickers off your fruit, you now own it.
