A Full Pantry

I know it is silly little things that make me happy, but a full pantry is definitely one of them. I guess it is my security gland being put to rest knowing my family will have plenty of good foods to eat. I feel so at peace when I see that pantry restocked will all of our staples and our freezer teaming with meats, cheeses, butters, and breads. They had gotten a little bare, so being able to stock them back up was great.

I don't always love grocery shopping, but K has started going with me so it is becoming more fun. I get to share in my excitement when I find a great deal on something we were going to get anyway. That happened this week...I was picking out some chicken breasts at Costco and I noticed the price tag. It was like $10 something for the big package of chicken. It had been marked down because the "sale by date" was close. "Sale by dates" don't mean much to me because I freeze all our meat anyway. Woohoo, score! I grabbed two packages since I had budgeted for the regular price, now I have double the chicken! I know I'm silly but bargains, but seeing something marked down at Costco was amazing to me. I had see manager's specials at the regular grocery stores, never had I seen such a thing at Costco. It was definitely a finer thing moment!

It truly is a Finer Thing to be able to provide great foods for my family everyday.
