I am Grocery Woman, hear me roar!

I've been steadily using up my pantry stock, accumulated over the last year. All things that were due to expire in 2010 are consumed.
Once the weather goes south (or should I say north ), driving downtown to go shopping is a real pain in the keister.

So I decided today was the day to go do my winter pantry shopping.
I spent over $200 on canned goods, dry goods, meats for freezing, candy bars , coffee and paper supplies. Glad it's all over and done with.

However, I have this lingering squirrelly feeling...

Wow! What kind of car? It sounds like you had a terrific day today.

I haven't bought anything but groceries since my last post on this thread (about buying my daughter's wedding present). Oh well.

Got lucky and spotted a feller about to load up his track-hoe a few doors from our house. We had a sidewalk replaced recently for only the cost of the concrete thanks to an economic stimulus program - in doing so we had some of the walk 6" below grade and some 6" above. Ground is hard and dry and lawn covered - a little tiller was going to cost $54 for 5 hour and I was not looking forward to using it. For $50 the track hoe guy gently scraped the earth level and dumped the sod and dirt near the sidewalk high spots. Totally great deal! Watching someone use a backhoe or track hoe that has the skill is very cool. For instance this set of pics showing a hoe loading itself onto a rail car.

Welcome to the forum, Sully.

I see you have a nice intro on your profile page, I especially liked the mention of your wife. Feel free to start a thread in the Hi, I Am section and let us know how your first three years of retirement have been going.

I purchased some RMB bonds due Sept 2011. A pathetic 2.7% pa yield to maturity but better than the 0.0% yield on my RMB savings account. At least I don't have to pay any tax on that.

I also "invested" in a weekend hotel and spa package in Macau for my wife's birthday next weekend.
