I’m not a big shopper. This probably doesn’t come as a big surprise since I’m trying to reduce the amount of stuff in our home. My biggest guilty pleasure for shopping is buying digital scrapbooking supplies, but at least that only clutters up my hard drive. So, I find it somewhat ironic that my first “New 52” was a shopping adventure.
Yes, that’s right, I finally made it to a Whole Foods Market! I’ve been hearing so much about this store, but there isn’t one that’s terribly convenient so I hadn’t been. I had to pass by one last week, so I jumped at the opportunity to do a bit of shopping. What I was really excited to explore was the bulk section. There were a number of offerings in the bulk section, but not as many as I had expected. I bought some bulk organic oatmeal, steel cut oats, wasabi peas, pumpkin-flax granola cereal, and some bulk tea. I made the mistake of going into the store hungry, so I couldn’t pass up the prepared lamb curry with lemon rice which I ate for lunch.
Will I go back? Definitely. There was a nice variety in the bulk section and the prices were reasonable (in the bulk section). The wasabi peas were a hit – even with Steven, who refuses to eat peas. I can also see myself buying soap and possibly makeup there. I can tell that I’m going to have to be careful – it would be easy to empty my wallet in that store.
