Since moving up to Delaware, our shopping habits have changed a bit. In Tulsa, we'd basically do the majority of our food shopping at Wal-Mart since it was right down the road from our apartment. It was quick and convenient. If we needed something, we just threw on sandals and drove over to Wal-Mart. If we had an impulsive want at 10 pm, we would weigh whether it was worth the 5 minute walk to Wal-Mart. Here in Delaware, however, there are 2 Wal-Marts near us, neither within walking distance. The Super Wal-Mart is in Elkton, MD, and is where we shopped for the first couple of months. For a Wal-Mart, it was surprisingly bright and clean. I liked it. The drive there was also pretty (despite the frequent roadkill), especially in the fall with all of the gorgeous leafy trees. The other Wal-Mart is a bit closer, but about 10 times more Wal-Mart-ish in it's dirtiness and stereotypical employees and customers. So, given these 2 options (longer drive versus ickiness), we decided we needed a new go-to store. We chose Costco. Verdict? Awesome. They sell so much organic stuff, in large quantities, for pretty competitive prices. Their produce quality and selection is great. You can get nearly anything product-wise, plus some. And the topper? They sell organic soy milk in bulk for less than the price of regular milk. Win. A funny side effect of shopping primarily at Costco is that Jason now thinks all non-Costco shopping carts feel toy-like. I laugh at him.
- Friday indicates some form of productivity looming up ahead. Boo.
- Costco. Awesome. Soy milk.
It's April 1st, but I give the above ramblings a 10/10 for authenticity.
To conclude: Why do humans not have a natural (read: bodily) carrying device for multiple children?
