    What do you HAVE to buy?

    When you hit the grocery store, what things do you always HAVE to buy while you're there?

    I find that I always end up at the mushrooms. I have to buy some every time I shop. It's bordering on a compulsion...should I be concerned?? Hahaha

    I also almost always buy some sort of cheese.
    I'm a Christian Witch, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

    I find it overly pretentious when people call themselves "Lady _________." My username would just have been "Dryad," had that not been taken and were I not unoriginal in picking names for things.
    By no means do I consider myself "Lady" anything.

    I love mushrooms - I could eat them all the time, especially shiitakes, oysters and the way over priced chanterelles (which I only buy for special occasions).

    I go to the supermarket once a week and I always buy bananas; I eat one almost every day.

    There are items I buy every week that are necessities, milk, eggs, yogurt - but treat or luxury type items change frequently, depending on my mood, cravings or the sales.

    On a weekly basis:

    Oranges
    Red Grape
    Shelled Peanuts
    Chili Beans, and other varieties of beans
    Pepperoni
    Franks Red Hot

    Pretty much it.

    Romaine or other salad green is probably something I buy every week without fail. Otherwise, I live by sales. So what I buy weekly is heavily based off of what's on sale.

    I do find myself buying cheese nearly every week- family goes through it a LOT.

    I love it too, but I rarely get more than a serving. The kids will eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if I let them.

    I was actually there they other day and they had not one mushroom in the entire store! I was so annoyed that I went and found a produce person just so I could complain about it. He made me feel validated. hahaha

    I pretty much shop exclusively for sale things too, but I NEED MY MUSHROOMS!
