About 12 hours after we returned from our honeymoon, Matt ran to the grocery store to get a few things we needed. And when he returned with this haul, I discovered something that I didn't know about him.
Just kidding. I learned that Matt's philosophy as it relates to items at the grocery store is "if you like it, buy a bunch of it."
Matt's not like this in any other area, so I've always wondered why he buys in bulk at the food store.
I think I got my answer on Friday night.
We went to the Phillies game Friday evening and we met Matt's dad at the ballpark. Matt and I had taken the train into the city but Matt's dad had driven in from his office, so he was going to drive us home. As we walked to his car he said, "Oh, don't let me forget, I have some stuff for you guys in the trunk."
Do you know what was in his trunk?
Eight liters of olive oil and 96 cans of tomatoes.
Evidently Matt comes from a long line of men who cannot resist a ShopRite can can sale.
Tonight I decided to clean out my purse since it felt like it weighed about ten pounds. And as I was cleaning it, I realized that I may have a problem with multiples myself.
If I'm ever in a situation where I need three packs of gum, two pairs of sunglasses, four pens, seven lip glosses, five bracelets (silver AND gold), a pair of earrings, three hair clips of assorted sizes, two bottles of hand lotion, and three protein packed snacks, I will be prepared.
