Topic : What would be in your trolley?
thecoffeelady - `10` `2012-06-21 15:16:06`  
I am continually intrigued by looking at what other people are buying while I'm grocery shopping, you can tell so much about a person by what they buy, I also love reading in the back of foodie magazines where celebrity chefs say what they always buy... What 5 items are always in your shopping trolley?

Hmm. Fruit and mesclun lettuce with herbs are the two things that are always in the trolley.  The rest varies according to specials but we seem to go through a lot of toilet paper, poppadoms, kids snacks and flour.

I'm always buying:
Bread - Disappears in our home too!
Milk - I'm a tea addict, so I feel good knowing there's always enough milk for my cuppa
Bananas - Lunch box staple for my kids
Eggs - They seem to vanish too between breakfasts and baking
Cold meats from the deli - Again for lunchboxes/ baking or peckish afternoons :)

I know that look ekubo ... I once got it from a kindy teacher I knew. She took one look in my trolley and asked if I was having a party because there was chippies and fizzy drink and not much else! I actually wasn't but was stocking up on a few treats

My shopping basket always has:

Tomatoes - the kids live on them!
Cat food - got to keep the only other females in the house happy!
Bread - glorious bread, luckily something my ultra fussy child WILL eat
Cheese - grated, sliced or block, it's got to be in there
Tegels Chargrilled Chicken Steaks - I think I panic if these aren't in my freezer. We use them for paninis, pasta, frittatas, burgers, tortillas and sometimes just as they are!

ds2 hasn't eaten all week. He's living on a cup of apple juice in the morning (make him drink it so he's got something in his tum for antibiotics) and a cup of chicken soup in the evening (ditto).

So today dropped into the supermarket and loaded up on treats to tempt him. Naturally while I have a basket full of crap I run into an acquaintance with a trolley full of veg and fruit.

I think I must have 'bad mum' tattooed on my forehead after the look she gave me and my incriminating basket.

lol... yep the food stuff is taken care of by Mr MumBum; oh and he does buy nappies, I just always get extra whenever I'm in the supermarket so we don't run out!

He also gets to loo paper and whatnot, but does tend to forget cleaning

muesli (dp eats it at night and it just disappears)

Hee hee Mumbum, the checkout chick must wonder if you live on takeaways........ no food at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MumBum - 8:33 PM Thu-21-Jun-2012
Mr MumBum does our grocery shopping but lately I have had to do a few trips myself... so here goes:
Dishwashing Powder
Fabric Softener

These are the things that the Mr usually forgets to stock up on... the condoms he sometimes remembers and the tampons, I get for myself so I never run out!lol

Fruits (bananas and oranges for sure), vegetables (garlic, onions, potatoes, carrots usually), yogurt, cold cuts, and bread are always in my weekly trolley.
