For the last several months, I've been making a deliberate effort (which my family knows about) to eat home, and use our stock from our freezer and pantry. It's been a little difficult, because DH claims to be on Atkins, so I've been very careful to plan meals around his "diet". When he's not home for dinner, DD and I eat a lot of pasta, etc, which we love, but I want to support DH in his diet. Anyway, I always ask DH if he needs or wants anything from the store before I go. Last night I got home from work to find he had gone to the grocery store. He came home with: 5 large family sized (12 servings) of frozen meals--lasagna, chicken pie, beef pot pie. First, if I knew he would eat it, I make a very healthy and good chicken pie, and there are only 3 of us--we don't need 12 servings of anything at one sitting. Plus he shopped at the expensive store, and even on their sale, these cost more that I could have gotten them for at the cheap store. 15Packs of luncheon meat. Again on sale, but more expensive than the good quality meat that we have in the meat drawer. He put it in the freezer. 2 cartons Premium Orange juice: DD isn't an orange juice drinker; I'm on WW so I prefer to eat my fruit than drink it, and last time I checked OJ wasn't on Atkins. 2 pints of blueberries: The only fruit I don't really care for. Hard to eat without something else with it. DD does not eat blueberries. 12 rolls of bounty: NOT on sale. You BBs know how expensive bounty is when it isn't on sale, plus it goes on sale every week almost. Also, the storage area where I keep paper towels is completely FULL of the towels which I bought on sale. 12 rolls of Charmin: see above about Bounty--not on sale, not needed. Ziplock bags: again, not needed--we have 5 boxes of each size he bought. 4 boxes of ice cream:again, I'm on WW, he's on Atkins, and DD is not a big fan of ice cream (she loves most fresh fruits and vegetables). So, DH spent almost $200 and we have nothing to eat. Of course, when I pointed out some of these things to him, he sulked and implied I was overly-critical. Sorry so long, just needed to vent! I just feel like I was making progress and now I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle. Then, when I point out my issues, I'm made to feel like I'm being ridiculous.
