Someday I will understand

Tonight I was at Meijer buying some great sale items. They had their sale of buy 10 items for $10.00 and get the 11th free going on. On the list of items for $10.00 was Ragu Spaghetti Sauce. At that price, it is cheaper than the Aldi's brand that we usually buy. I was loading up on sauce, when an older lady came and asked what the price was. I so excitedly told her ALL about the sale and how much each jar would cost, if she got 11! At this point, she SO sweetly reached out and touched my arm. With a twinkle in her eye, she said, "Honey, if I bought 11 jars of sauce it would last me a life time! It's just my husband and I." We both laughed and then she asked me how many children I have? I told her that my husband and I have five children. She then said something like, "Now you Honey....need 11 jars!"
Someday the children will be grown and gone. My grocery bill will be SO much more manageable and food will last in my house, but until then.....I will stock up on ALL the sale items I can get my hands on!!! Oh and I will enjoy my children while they are still here!

That's a cute story! It's always interesting to run into someone who's in a different season of life with a different perspective!

That's really sweet. I completely understand your grocery bill woes. We have 5 ages 6 and under. I'm cringing at the thought of what it's going to be like when they hit their teens! I agree about enjoying them while they're still here though.
