'They said SNOW!'

I went to the grocery store today and felt a bit like this:

Now, with family and friends in disaster areas they have sent me live photos of the grocery store shelves, and my heart hurts for the people there unable to do simple things like grocery shop. I can't imagine.

My insane gluttony of 'stuff' had nothing to do with being prepared, rather...there were some really good sales.

I'm also trying to balance our budget out. Which to us means less hits of Costco trips.

In my efforts to do this, I'm trying to guess how much normal sized shampoo we use and get that on sale...enough to last us until the next sale. I mean a Costco one can last for MONTHS! But when my hair reaches the middle of my back...those teeny tiny bottles go pretty quickly.

How do you balance it all? I mean really? I went way over budget. But everything was on sale. So, I think that in the long run it will be better...but...for now, ouch. How do you do it?

Also, where we used to live, if there was a mention of a possibility of snow, this video is a pretty accurate description of what it was like. It wouldn't even SNOW and the shelves of the grocery store would be bare! I can't imagine what would happen in the case of a natural disaster. My hat is off to those hit by Harvey and those who go and help. It is amazing. The love, the service, the people. I am in awe.
