This weekend we made an ill-fated outing to the mall. The mission: a few gifts and new khakis, all on super sale.
2 grouchy kids and a broken dish later, I knew it was not to be.
At home I clicked website after website till my eyes glazed over.
How is it possible to have the world at my fingertips, and yet not find anything just right?
I shuffled to the refrigerator. Out of milk! At least I could run to the corner grocery alone.
What I found there looked pretty good.
Here's my crazy plan: I'm going to do ALL my gift buying on my weekly grocery run.
I can bake, buy, or gift basket--but if I can't get what I want there, I won't hunt all over town for something better. I know I'll save time and energy.
My guess? I'll save money, too.
