What is on your shopping list? I know more people are shopping less, but my shopping habits haven't really changed. I do our main shopping every two weeks or so. On my list right now:


Eggs

American cheese

Bread

Half and Half

Shampoo and Conditioner

Paper Towels

Rice

Bacon

Bird Seed

Atkins Shakes

Snacks for SO to take to work

Any kind of effective cleaning product I can find

All purpose flour

Parchment paper

Regular Tide Powder

Fabric Softener


Its about that time to hit the store again. I also have to get things that I no longer put on the list, because I get them every single trip:


Butter

My and SOs preferred drinks/bottled waters

Green tea bags


What's on your list?

Only thing I can think of is eggnog. I have enough food if I can make myself fix it to last about 6 months. I did order cold meds because I discovered that the container states it expired in 2013 but I only have two capsules left.

I bought cold med the other day thinking that when cold and flu season hit it might be in short supply.

Well, my Costco list so far has Kirkland K-cups med roast, Oxy Clean, Tide Original powder, Boursin cheese. All on special with the coupon book beginning 28th. I'll buy more there, including eggnog that they are stocking (two pack 1/2 gal for $7.59)

My whichever store I get to first has red wine vinegar, orange juice, cheddar cheese, cauliflower and green beans if they look good. Both looked really good last week at Chucks in Vancouver and I'm down to about two large servings green beans (tried sauteing them and got a thumbs up from DH so have been doing that)

I did a weekly shop so I bought the usual suspects: eggs, milk bread, wraps, cottage cheese, cheddar cheese cereal. I treated myself to Sugar Pops. Remember those?

Cold cuts., Ground beef and peppers for stuffed peppers which was for dinner tonight

Potato chips another staple! A box of sugar wafer cookies.

Apples, bananas, salad mix, coleslaw mix. I am going to make the coleslaw dressing on the back of the bag.

I bought celery seed, thinking I didn't have it. Turns out I had two at home. Dry mustard also goes into this dressing as well, so I needed that.

I still need scrubbing bubbles. They are MIA in all the stores!

It would be so different if I lived alone, but I lose my DH and an elderly relative. So, I must be ready for meals for them. Hamburger, round steak, pasta, soup fixings, chili making, roast chicken, Vegetables, etc. etc. etc. I am not complaining. I feel fortunate that I have others to care about

eld, wish you were my neighbor. The other night when I was in the store, I knew I needed some kind of seed and brought home a jar of dill seed. Turned out had plenty of that. A day later I wanted to make some bread and butter pickles, got everything ready and lo and behold, it called for celery seed and that was the seed I needed but didn't buy. I quickly put in an order at Harris Teeter, got my celery seed and another $50.00 worth of stuff and made my pickles. Had you been my neighbor, I probably could have saved $50.00! :-)))

Keep telling yourself that georgysmom but everyone who has purchased from there or Penzeys knows better. I ordered four spices from Amazon because I knew I could stop at those four rather than going to my normal Penzey's.

I just did a big curbside pick up on Saturday. Starting a new list

tapioca- oops forgot to put that in my order! DD (27) loves the tapioca cream recipe on the box. I usually make it for her when she’s here. I emptied the box last week when she was here.

Coke Zero 12 pk- didn’t like Walmart’s price. It was on sale at Dollar General last week but 2 stores didnt have Coke Zero And blamed it on an aluminum shortage. . Unwilling to pay $5 at Walmart.

Lisa, I looked for tapioca for 3 weeks in about 4 different places before finding it at Fred Meyer in Vancouver last week. They had it, other brand than I usually buy....

Mostly fresh produce, but I thought I might pick up some baking supplies if I go to the regular grocery store. I never have much flour or sugar on hand, so I should probably buy a small bag of each so I can do some Christmas baking.

My Walmart order was picked up yesterday. I ordered pork sausages, pork chops, 2 450g medium ground beef, fresh whole chicken wings which we had for dinner tonight. For vegetables I ordered a cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, spring mix greens, 2 pomegranates, 2 green peppers, 6 sweet potatoes, cherry tomatoes, 4 zucchinis, English cucumber, 4 limes, 8 bananas. Chapmans Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, feta cheese, Black Diamond old cheddar cheese, Cheez Whiz (yuck), Hint of Lime Tostitos, 2 tins Aylmer whole tomatoes, 2 tins Aylmer plum tomatoes, Yucatan Guacamole, 1 tin creamed corn (haven't had it since I was a child), bread, Root beer - I ordered a box of 12 tins, they substituted 3-2 litre bottles, small carton of half and half for soup I will be making and for coffee if anyone wants to use it. No Yolk extra wide noodles, Gay Lea sour cream. Order total was $176.85 which I thought was a lot because same items would be much cheaper at the discount grocery store where I would normally shop if I didn't need to order online. I still need to get chicken breasts that are on sale at another store. This should last us a few weeks or more but will need more bread, milk and butter as we run out. My niece sent over 2 cartons of pretty colourful eggs from her chickens. I picked up 20 pounds of Empire apples and 20 pounds of Honey Crisp apples and 2 squashes from fruit stands last weekend. Oops I just remembered a tin of pumpkin for a recipe and E D Smith cherry pie filling to use on toast (yum), bottle of maple syrup

Kevin already shopped yesterday, and so the only things left to get are rye flour and onions. Of course, fish is always on the list, in case we find something, but it isn't for certain unless we go to Bristol Farms or Gelson's. We also always look for sushi.

Q: off topic a bit, but how long do rice stick noodles last?

I’ve got to make a habit of writing the purchase date on things.

My order came, first time it hasn't come early. They usually come ten minutes or more before my scheduled delivery time. This time it was about 7 minutes after the first hour, which is better since I sometimes wake up right before I scheduled a delivery and it's annoying to be woken up. No hamburger buns or Fantastik available and I guess no substitutes either. I guess I'll bake some bread so I can use the lettuce and ham I bought for sandwiches.

Rice rounds go bad/develop an off taste and smell because of the stuff used to hold them together. Most rice sticks are simply a noodle with very little binder. They may take longer to cook when old but would beyond the mental ugh last your lifetime as long as they are not wet or buggy. Or is it buggie

Thanks, maifleur. I think I once spotted a section of insect embedded in a rice round. I tossed the package, even though that was probably the tip of the iceberg wrt what gets into a lot of processed or cottage industry foods.

I wish I still had the link for the video of a home industry in Chinatown (US city) where massive amounts of mung bean sprouts were being processed from hard bean to packaged beautiful white sprouts. Long while ago, but IIRC at rather dirty kitchen floor and feet were involved. The sprout product looked great — much nicer that any I’ve manage to put forth.

Oh, maifleur, I quickly perused a recent post (forgot where) in which you spoke of buying vegetable seeds or collecting seeds from purchased squashes.

I’ve done that and had good luck. Apparently a lot of butternut squash in ‘Waltham’ or close. A few years ago a lot of the common cukes were ‘Marketmore’. I planted a lot of the butternut collected seeds and got a decent return considering the patch was in a scrappy part of the garden and woodchucks kept raiding it.

I found that even some old seeds will germinate.
