Adventures in tampons

Clean up, on aisle "your face!"

Clean up, on aisle "your face!"

Nothing is more fun than grocery shopping with multiple assailants with a bent for anarchy.  especially when they behave like Sinanju ninja’s trained by Chiun himself.  Over the summer I have all 4 with me but now that school is back in full swing its the two youngest ones who leave the wake of terror.  And of course I am always in a hurry which exponentially increases the defcon level.

So yesterday, as I am crossing off everything on my grocerygame list, (I’m already frustrated because I can’t find things I am looking for because King Soopers puts organic items in their own complete section [thanks environmental wackos]) and I come to the dreaded end because guess whats left?  Well if you read the title you guessed it.  By now I didn’t care because when I am mad appearances don’t matter as much anymore.  I am furiously pacing up and down the feminine hygiene products aisle and see every form of maxi-this and panti-liner that but no tampons.  Thats when a store manager taps me on the shoulder in front of his female associate and asks if I need any help.  I turn to find he’s a former colleague from my mortgage business days.  I state, quite loudly, “Yes, I can’t find the tampons!”  It was a glorious moment in the epoch of man.  Needless to say I bought pads and tampons like I was stocking up for armegeddon.

These things need a slogan campaign like Taco Bell's hot sauce packets

Of course later that evening my wife lets me know that she doesn’t use pads, but liners so now all these wonder inventions of the 21st century will now have to be returned to the store by yours truly.  In a moment of grace and self-sacrifice my dear wife told me she would return them to spare me the torturous task of having to be humiliated again.

The reality is I don’t mind buying that kind of stuff.  It just adds to the mystique of “super husband”.

Saving money at the grocery store – 50% everytime

Do you spend money at the grocery store and save at least 50% EVERY WEEK?

I do!    www.grocerygame.com

I use this service every week when I grocery shop and save at least 50% off the bill EVERY TIME.  It has more than paid for itself. Its $10 every 2 months.

Now you can try the trial for free for 4 weeks and see what you think. 

What makes it so cool is you only cut the coupons you need by saving the coupon flyers in a folder each week.  The Grocery Game tells you which coupons to clip from which flyers because they track the sale trends from each store and you don’t buy until that product is at a historic low.

Never cut a coupon until the list tells you which ones to cut out only for what you want to buy.

 If you use the free trial please make sure you mention us whelchelfamily@gmail.com when you sign up so we can get the referral credit. 

Saving at least 50% every week is no small matter.
