Then I went to Save a Lot and picked up flour, rice (pleh), and two cans of tomato paste for about $3.80.
I want to go to the Asian market and pick up soy sauce and (maybe) the ginormous vat of tofu. If I don't get the tofu, I'll probably spend that $5 on more potatoes and beans.
Anyway, that was the whole of my "lets be good" for the day. On the way home, to avoid the traffic (it's a strange merge and my car has no get up and *anything*), I went past the publix. And by past, I actually mean in.
And they had chips on sale, buy one get one free, so of course I got two. Which I then nommed. Instead of real food or veggies, or anything that contains ingredients recognizable to people who don't have chemistry degrees.
Also, I got to see a pack of wild coupon ladies. They had matching (huge) binders, and used something like 4 coupons each for 2 items. Which makes the line stop dead. I didn't know they were allowed to travel in packs, though. One thing I did finally notice- there doesn't seem to be much diversity among coupon ladies. They're almost all middle aged white ladies here.
I don't know if it's because they have more time, or the stores that do good coupon deals seem more expensive, or if it's some kinda racial/ cultural/ gender thing. It's also possible that I just don't shop at the "right" time to see them all.
Other thing I noticed today? People in Charleston walk really slowly. Like "I'm drunk, and have a headache, and a fever, and a broken leg" slowly. Drives me nuts.
So, real food today?
