I generally pretty much loathe going to the market. It has nothing to do with clinical food-hatred, or fear of produce. Instead, it has to do with wasting time. When doing my real, once every two weeks shopping, I’ve never been able to blow in ‘n out of a grocery store in less than an hour, and I just can’t help thinking that I might be missing something important (you know, like Oprah).

Having said that, I do enjoy quickly grabbing just a few essentials from the market when I find myself right next to it while getting gas, or, buying duct tape at the hardware store. This way I can sustain myself for months, never having to actually burn some serious free-time all in one chunk, buying a few things here, a few things there…

Another reason I enjoy this method so much is that it produces random combinations of essential items. For instance, last night I absolutely had to have toilet paper and tortillas. You’ve just got to wonder about someone’s priorities when all they have to buy at 11:00 PM is toilet paper and tortillas…
