Why in the world do I wait to shop until Saturday night? Haha. This week, it actually worked out.
First Stop: Costco
(I put the stuff away without paying attention to the actual sizes, and they aren't on my receipt. Rest assured, they are nothing short of gigantic containers.)
Schuler's Sharp Cheddar
Hummus (mmmmmmmmmy favorite!)
Land O Lakes Butter
Arm and Hammer Baking Soda
Second Stop: Meijer
(I was going to use up my wee fistful of rainchecks tonight since this week's ad was less than impressive, but then the selection of items I had rainchecks for was also less than impressive. I will endeavor to shop Monday before they expire. We shall see ...)
