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.
