The Grocery Meme

Posted by Kero at Monday, July 05, 2010
I snagged this Mommy-apt meme from Beach Treasure. Feel free to do it as well when you have time and do let me know so I can come visit.

1. How often do you go to the grocery store?
 **Well, if we didn't do groceries on weekend, I am sure to be going to the nearest grocer everyday.

2. Do you love or hate going grocery shopping?
**loveit!!!! just not on the wet market okay?

3. Where do you go?
**We buy our fresh frozen pork supply (as well as Spam, Chunkee Corned Beef,  bacon, etc.) in Spinneys and Waitrose. Here in Dubai, pork is sold only in select supermarkets. or all the rest, we buy them in Carrefour, Union Coop, and Al Manama Hypermarket. The latter two are just across the street.

4. Are you a faithful list writer
**Hehe. I do ahve my grocery list most of the times but then, I always find something to buy that is not on my list!! It defeats the purpose lolzzzz!

5. Do you write it but never remember to bring it?
**Ah yes, it happened plenty of times now

6. Do you use coupons?
**Oh yes if I am lucky to have some.

7. What do you ALWAYS have in your fridge?
 **yoghurt, butter, eggs, and parmesan cheese.

8. What is the thing in your fridge that is a "guilty pleasure"?
**Strawberry flavored Activa!! I can't get enough of them these days.

9. What is that one or two things that you feel like you buy every single day?
 **yoghurt and banana

10. What items do your children consume in ABUNDANCE?
**My son has to have yoghurt everyday. He is crazy about soyamilk as well, and pasta with parmesan. No sauce, just plain penne or tricolore and parmesan.

11. What's on your fridge?
**Ammmm, a cut out recipe of apple crumble (but then i realized Hubby does not like cooked apples so never gpt the chance to do it. A Del Monte Fridge magnet that reminds to eat fruits and veggies everyday, a PADI sticker (Hubby was having his advance scuba diving lessons when he bought the fridge), and an Emirates Diving Association sticker. We moved four times and we thought, the fridge is the only thing we could bring along with us anywhere we move hahahaaa

12. Are the fridge magnets special, or random?
**Random. I just use them to hold up recipe cut outs.

13. When you go to the store do you just throw things into the cart, or do you stack them neatly
**I separate the dry and frozen and the laundry soap. other than tht, i pretty much throw everything in the cart.

14. Brand name or generic?
** Except for milk that my son drinks (that's because he refuses to drink any other brand),  I always opt for the cheaper, generic brand.

15. Do you read labels?
**Yes I do, when the product is new or unfamiliar.

16. Do you use paper or plastic?
**Plastic. Sowee. but we do reuse them.

17. Any words you live by when doing your grocery?
**Do not hit the supermarket hungry or you will end up hoarding. And half of what you bought will only end up in the rubbish shoot.
