Today was errand day for me. We were out of milk, fruit and veggies, and household items. Literally, the boys had the last of the milk and fruit this morning for breakfast. In my mind I really should have gone to the grocery store friday but I procrastinated. I knew I had a buffer day of today. Yes...I have buffer days. I do not like to run out of things. Any things........food, household items, clean clothes, etc. If I run out of things I feel like I am not doing my job properly. I have a warped mind......did I ever tell you. I stockpile things. If the family opens up a bottle of shampoo I make a mental note to replace said item quickly. Even if said item will not be needed for another month or so........a replacement needs to be under the counter....waiting.I have gotten much better at my stockpiling(lack of money plays a huge role). Now, I am okay with just one said item under the counter and not two or three. As for food.....especially perishable items.......I carefully watch and plan when I can/need to go grocery shopping. I am okay with using up the last of the milk but by goodness new milk will be in the fridge by next meal time.
If not......did I really take good care of my family? This is my job folks....not to run out of things. I am warped .......I know. So tell me.....do you stockpile? Do you have buffer days when you know clothes should be cleaned but have a few more days of white socks to tide everyone over. Buffer days!!! Or are you carefree and frivolous.
