    Default my grocery list Thankyou

    I did my grocery shopping today. I used cvs, kroger and walmart. I

    did it for less than 150, and that will have to do for the next two

    weeks. I did forget to mention in the other post that I have two

    sons, both who are 5 right now. My husband works odd hours with the

    railroad, and is very picky and spoiled about his food. The Keebler

    cookies and honeybuns are his. He does like my homemade cookies, but

    say they don't 'keep' as well as the store bought. The lysol wipes

    are for wiping down things on the train and in the hotel things when

    he is on his 'rest' time at work. My kids are spoiled to the cin.

    rolls, pillsbury brand. But honestly mine are very good, but I can't

    get anyone to eat them. Soooo I need some advice about kids and

    husbands who are spoiled to the wrong stuff. Barb

    My hubby will eat whatever I put in front of him. I am blessed that he is not a

    "picky" eater.

    Maybe rather than getting them every time, make it a once every two

    weeks treat, and change up what you get each time you go shopping.

    Maybe one week, you get the cinnamon rolls, and the next week, the

    honey buns.



    Being spoiled isn't neccesarrily bad- if you can afford it. But making

    them an occasional treat instead of the every day norm would work as a

    way to help ween them off of it, so to speak.



    Have you tried generic brand cinnamon rolls? That's all we get when we

    do get them (about once every other month is all, and on holidays we

    make cinnamon rolls up for breakfast), and I can't tell the difference

    between those and brand name.

    ---Your right about the generics, they are very good in most cases.

    The only thing I've noticed about the cinnamon rolls is the generics

    aren't packaged very well. My dh takes the honey buns with him to

    work in his bucket. He also uses them for quick breakfasts

    occationally. I love the muffin idea, but he is just so darned

    picky, that I don't think he'd eat them if I made them. I am

    considering just refusing to buy them as often or at all. My dh has

    some annoying health problems that the more I think about it, cannot

    be helped by his eating habits. Barb In

    When they aren't in the house at all and you "stick to your guns" they won't miss them. In the short term it may get crazy; but if you keep at it and always offer new homemade items in place of the expensive store bought ones it will work. The kids, believe it or not, will be the easiest. Your DH on the other hand will be tougher. Gently remind him that they aren't good for him and ounce for ounce are a waste of money that could be better spent on more filling food. If he still protests, then you could always suggest that he come up with other ways to stretch the food budget since he feels that they are necessities. Good Luck!
