I want to tell you what exciting, totally rocking, off.the.hook. kind of weekends we have here in this house.
Oh Em Gee, you are going to be so jealous.
Our Saturday project of the last 6 months?
The storage of food.
Yes, my friends, it's that exciting over here. I know, I know. You can only dream of such awesome excitement in your life.
See, I head to the store and bring home a little extra of sales every Saturday,
and then Jeff slaves away to properly store and organize it.
And why do we do this, you ask? Besides that food prices are anticipated to raise significantly? Or that I try to not take my 4 children to the store as much as is humanly possible (seriously, it is sooo dysfunctional)? Besides the more important reason?
If you've ever lived in an area that had a major disaster, you might know the feeling of either not being able to get to the store, OR heading to a store with shelves completely cleaned out.
Therefore, we've built up our supply, and stuck it in the dungeon. Er, I mean the dark, cold, cemented spooky basement.
Like I said, The Dungeon.
Now, you can get some pretty cool looking shelves. They have labels, and they dispense cans all nifty-like. You could go that route.
Or you could be like us and go the redneck route.
But I'm telling you, the redneck route is the way to go, man. I'm telling you, give the cinderblock/plywood method the "Tough Shed", drive-your-truck-on-top test, versus the same test with those metal can dispenser dealy-o's and tell me how it goes.
Actually, both would probably be a disaster. But it might be a fun test. Let me know.
Anywho, I've been the coupon-clipping, sales-watching Ho these last few weekends--
and after massive work of shelving and re-stocking last weekend, I can actually see what we have. We like to call it "The Store". Or the "Dungeon Store". What ever mood I'm in, see.
Taken advantage of all the cereal sales in the last little bit. Every box I've bought was $1.50 or less.
And, ahem, I might wanna slow down on that- those cereal boxes are 2 deep. Good grief.
