Grocery Shopping:

• That moment when you get excited when you see a 5 for $10 coupon for frozen pizzas? That's when you know you're all grown-up.

• Buying 40 Banquet meals because they are on sale? That's when you know you still have a long way to go.

• Nutrition is the last thing I consider when buying groceries. It goes price > convenience > "Do I really want to lug this up four stories?" > "Doesn't taste like soy and Splenda?" > nutrition.

• Save time and money: Shop exclusively from the promotional islands, end-caps, and the impulse items by the register; the store knows what we, the consumers, want and need.

• Generally, generic brands are just as good as the name brands, but don't you DARE try to pass off Mountain Lightning as Mountain Dew to me. I can taste any impurities in my Dew and will seek-out the nearest electronics to rid my mouth of the sacrilege.

• If you want to eat healthy and save money, don't shop hungry or full; shop hungover. You will come out of the store with plenty of water, Gatorade, and hearty comfort foods; and you will refrain from buying alcohol, fried anything, candy, or any variety of spicy Doritos.

• I love self-checkouts. There is something liberating about personally choosing which items you want to ring up.

• Why can't I buy strawberries and grapes individually like I can apples and onions? I'm tired of buying an entire pound of strawberries when I really need only two to make a provocative photo.
