Single Serve

I usually try not to buy single serving portions of food. It seems wasteful, so I go bulk and repackage when I get home. But I have been so busy between sorting out Grandpa H affairs (and hopefully never having to worry about that again) and farm stuff that I just haven't had time. I also have issues as of late because the summer house has smaller kitchen amenities than upstairs. Yesterday at Costco I came upon single serve organic chocolate milk-no refrigeration needed. Normally I would eschew this, but with a fridge the size of a 32 in TV, I am hurting for room. So I got them. I am feeling guilty, and yet relieved. We also picked up Annie's snack crackers and carrots in single serve packets. My argument is that once we are back upstairs and I have my fall/winter time back I will go back to the repackage approach. In the meantime, I was a little excited to find organic items at Costco that I was never able to find at Sam's Club. We will most likely do most our grocery shopping out there, and just fill in at HyVee as needed.


  1. Sometimes you just have to give yourself a break. Don't feel guilty, just be kind to yourself!

  2. I love Costco! & those "milk boxes" are great!!! No refridgeration required!! Great for in the truck!

  3. I don't think God needs us to burdened and carry a load when we just don't have the time. Praise God for those handy Annie's snack packs, lol!! So much fun reading your site! By the way, It's time I make the switch from Sam's to Costco!


I welcome hospitable, intelligent discussion. I do not welcome mean-spirited comments. Though they are "moderated" I post pretty much everything, with a very, very small exception-that being spam and those who aim to hurts others intentionally. I'd love hear what you have to say, otherwise!
