So, it’s been a week since the official start of The 11 Month Project. How’d you do?
I do my grocery shopping on Sunday and do the bulk of my shopping at Costco…pun intended. I find that even for just the three of us things are much cheaper there BUT I get drawn in like some sort of freaky side show by the non-food related items. There is always something that I am just sure would make life so much easier. Sunday was no different.
Coscto now carries this magic soda machine….pour in water, add a C02 canister and POW carbonated water…conveniently they also sell the flavored syrup. No more lugging cans or bottles of soda. You can make your drinks, your own flavors, just have plain seltzer water……a dream!! Well it has sucked my daughter right in with its magical fizzy powers and even, in a moment of weakness, had me thinking “Wow, that would be great”. Anyone who knows me knows how silly the idea of this is…..FIRST the 11 Month Project has just started so buying it is out of the question but SECOND, and perhaps the most important….I HAVEN’T HAD A SIP OF SODA IN 10 YEARS. In those 10 years the only carbonated beverage that has even crossed my lips has been of an “adult” nature. My daughter and husband DO drink soda but in such a limited amount it would take more than a year for this “must have” item to save us a single dime and by then we’d surely be bored with this new toy.
Soooo, I walked away and continued on with grocery shopping. What did you walk away from this week?
