Grocery Shopping Hormones

So, Joseph and I had to visit the grocery store for a few things, where I eventually found myself in the baking aisle-crying. This is our 'low income month' and we are trying to really watch our pennies. My inlaws had sent us a box of non-perishable food items, so I decided to base some of my meals off of some of those items and thought I wouldn't have to spend alot of money. Needless to say, I was WRONG. I ended up putting some items back and forsaking my list. I bought enough for tonights meal, our Sunday meal, bread, water and spent $20. I just could not get over how expensive everything was-all I wanted to do was have the opportunity to make my husband a nice Sunday dinner and satisfy my craving for brownies and ice cream with hot fudge. Maybe Monday, I can take myself to a different grocery store and not have to struggle to keep the pregnant woman tears at bay because food prices are outrageous.
