Hi everybody, I just cannot figure it out. I used borrowed energy to work full-time to care for myself and my daughters, and taking time off without pay (there's no short-term disability on my job) is not an option, now that ex is on an unpaid leave and I don't know when I'll get child support again. That leaves no energy for the supermarket struggle. I don't know how or when to go. If I go afterwork, thinking since I'm already out, it's most convenient, the stores are crowded, I'm weak and in pain and it's aggravating. I'm too tired to say I'll go at 6:00am in the morning (for 24-hour grocery stores). Plus, I don't like grocery-shopping so I try to cram the bulk of our grocery-shopping in at the beginning of the month. Should I be going once a week, getting a few items? We eat a mostly vegetarian lifestyle, but my kids take their lunch to school and we only use soy or almond milk, so milk and supplies for school lunches can run out rather quickly. Plus, I shop at at least two stores----------a local chain (Marc's) for cheap fresh fruits; vegetables; nuts; chicken; cereal; canned goods; frozen pizza; beverages for the kids' school lunches and then a major supermarket/grocer like Giant Eagle or TOPS or Heinens for everything else. Any tips?
