Tiny Grocery Trip

This week's grocery trip was SMALL. Being out of town this past weekend, there really wasn't much that we actually needed, except dog food. Toilet paper was also at a good price, so while we weren't down to one roll, I went ahead and picked some up.

I also did something this week that I haven't done in 11 1/2 years as a pet owner. I ran out of dog food. Wednesday morning when I got up, I let the pups out to do their business and came back inside to fix their breakfast. I opened the bin, and there was hardly any left. Dang it. I usually feed Thing 1 and Thing 2 separately because Thing 2 will totally shove Thing 1 out of the way and eat his food if I don't.

So, I "filled" Thing 2's bowl. She looked at the bowl with a fraction of her normal food, then looked at me, then looked at the bowl, then back at me with a look that said "You have GOT to be kidding me!" So, she ate what was there, sniffed around for more and then finally went back outside. So, I filled Thing 1's bowl. Pretty much the same reaction, although I swear the look he gave me was more along the lines of "Dumb a**." I apologized to both pups and promised I'd bring home food that afternoon.

Quite honestly, I'm surprised that I didn't come home to find that Thing 2 had eaten the couch.

So, anyway, I definitely got the dog food and a few other things:

1 20 lb Pedigree Dog Food
1 Angelsoft
1 Publix Diet Lemon Lime (penny item!)
1 Fat Boy Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches

Spent: $18.78, Saved $10.82 or 37% --- not my best savings percentage, but quite honestly, I can rarely get my savings super high when I'm buying dog food and tp!


  1. I had the same problem when I had two cats - one would eat the food of both. Well, as for most over-eaters she died several years ago while the skinny one is still going strong! Though I must say she has gained weight since the other one died but not a lot.

  2. Thing 2 wants Thing 1's food, but I don't let her have it! She's actually a very good weight for her breed and height.

    Thing 1, well he's porking up a bit in his older years!
