This little guy could have probably used a trim too. I have a hard time cutting a baby's hair for the first time. I always want to wait just a little bit longer :) Sentimental for some reason. Not sure what they psychology is behind that, but that's always been the case with me ;)
Yesterday I corrected four prices, but missed the onions ringing up too high. There were two signs above the onion display - one said $1.67/pound and the other said 3 pounds for $1. The sign that said 3#/$1 was on the side that the 3 pound bags of onions were on, so naturally I figured the bags were $1. I didn't especially need onions, but I grabbed two bags figuring it was a great deal. They store well, and sometimes I saute a bunch of them and freeze them to add to meals. Well of course they rang up for the higher price, but I didn't think to check it until I was at the truck. So I went in to have them fix the price. They said they had rang up correctly and wouldn't change it. I was extremely frustrated. Okay that's a major understatement.
It would be one thing if this didn't happen all the time. But it does. And I just think about all the people who don't pay attention to prices. It's ridiculous, but I realized the other day that I memorize the prices of everything I buy. A good skill, but it shouldn't be necessary. Anyway enough ranting. I determined right then and there that I will NOT be shopping there if it can be avoided. We have a small butcher shop in town where I can buy fresh meat, we participate in a co-op for fresh fruits and veggies, and bread, and I will be more diligent about shopping once a month in Jackson Hole.
So that's what I was working on - a menu for the month, so that I can have an all-inclusive shopping list and get it all done out of town. We used to do this all the time, but we needed an updated menu to include all the things we love, and to be more precise about including absolutely everything. I go through a gallon of milk a day with the daycare, so I'm planning to freeze milk, but may still have to get some of that in town. I can do that at the butcher shop too. And this summer we're supposed to be getting an Alco store which will carry some of the basics too. They are supposed to have a gas and convenience/grocery store too, so hopefully they'll have milk at a reasonable price. So goodbye Ripoffs! Hope that 67 cents was worth it.
