Worst Mother EVER?

I swear I looked like the world's worst mom today at Publix. I went in to take advantage of the deals and the $5 off $30 coupon in today's paper and of course the penny item. Since summer is here, there's a lot more munching going on in my house with teenagers in and out the door. So, time to stock up on junk! But as I was checking out, the guy in front of me had organic yogurt and fruit. The guy behind me had all kinds of fruits, veggies, meats, plus some junk. Me, basically, I had junk. I plan to hit Aldi later this week for produce and other "good" stuff. Anyway, here's how I did:

1 Publix American Singles (Penny Item)
10 Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks
2 Taco Bell Dinners
2 Cesar Dog Treats
4 Publix Shells & Cheese
3 Bailey's Coffee Creamer
4 Coffee Mate Creamer
2 Doritos
4 Ramen Noodles
1 Mrs T Periogi
1 Nestle Cookie Dough
1 Stouffers Family Sized Dinner
1 Tombstone Pizza
3 Country Crock
1 Pillsbury Frosting
1 Breakstone Sour Cream

Spent: $49.42
Saved: $67.04 or 58%


  1. If it makes you feel better....the other day I went to the store and bought pizza rolls, lunchables, chips....

    Only the finest processed food for my family.

  2. Oh jeez! I am SO glad I'm not the only one!!!!!

  3. I forgot about the ice cream sandwiches, processed lunch meat, and canned soup.

    :) Trust aren't alone.

    I don't feed them this stuff ALL the time...but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

  4. This kind of stuff is always in the house.... but its not all that's in the house. I promise! Ha.

  5. lol, we've seen your other shopping. It's ok.

  6. Hmmmm... that could be a good thing or a bad thing.... as I usually don't get the worth-posting-about-shoppping deals when I'm buying healthy stuff! HA.

  7. We have all had those moments!

  8. I have those moments, too! My teens were raised on pre-packaged food for the most part. When I started transitioning to local and unprocessed foods a few years ago, their battle cry became, "A little processed food is okay, Mom." They are better about eating from scratch food now, but still ask for the occasional box of fruit snacks and frozen pizzas.

  9. I think we have those moments more often than we care to admit! haha.
