Grocery versus Wet Market Shopping

Every wife and mother must deal with grocery shopping. I find it generally a happy experience – until I find myself at the counter wondering how much the grocery bill is going to be this time. Why is it that we only get to know how much we have to pay at the checkout counter anyway? I think it’s the supermarket’s way of robbing us. I demand that our shopping carts have sensors that would add up everything we put in it. That way we’ll know how much up to the last centavo we would be paying at the counter.

So how much did our grocery bill cost us the last time? It’s P4,000 and that doesn’t include meat, fish, fruits, and vegetables which we buy separately in the wet market. Look at some of the stuff we buy. That’s not really healthy right? Sometimes I want to buy grocery shopping altogether and buy everything in the wet market. There we can buy the freshest food and avoid snacks like these and processed food which we buy over and over every month. Do you think we can survive? How about you? What’s in your grocery cart?
