GCC Shopping Round Up

I feed off my routine and when there is a change I feel all disoriented and weird. That's how my shopping trip went today. Normally my Monday mornings start with rushing out the door to my mother's with my four kids. She babysits on Monday mornings so I can shop alone. Today it was four kids and a dog, since Tucker isn't ready to be left alone in the house yet. Then I usually have tea with a friend before my shopping starts but she was on vacation so I was just in a daze, not knowing what to do with my free time.

Is that sad or what? All that free time and I didn't know what to do with it!

So here's what I came home with...

***Mr. Linky seems to have mysteriously disappeared and so has their site. Hmmm. If you have a link please leave it in the comments. I'm hoping it will magically re-appear at some point so you can see all the links that were already entered. I'm sorry guys. It's beyond my control at this point.

Georgia is pretty humid. How do the rest of you handle stockpiling? I'm afraid of buying too much and having it go bad.

You did great this week though. That is an awesome price on dishwasher powder and mayo. Besides, you were under budget and you bought chocolate! Great job.

How does one go about finding a grocery outlet? I've heard of these places, but I've never actually seen one.

Berries are just too expensive where I live so I haven't been able to take advantage of them this year.
Yay for fitting chocolate in!

I know what you mean about messing with your routine... a couple weeks ago I went shopping on Saturday night instead of Sunday morning, and it was just plain weird :)

Here's the link to my weekly shopping post since poor Mr. Linky is having issues:
