Happy 1 yr. Wegmans Anniversary!

I feel like I need to celebrate - today is my one year anniversary of becoming an official Wegman's lover customer. How in the world do I remember when I converted, you ask? Well, it's actually quite simple! Every time I've shopped there, I use their online grocery list creator. Honestly, it is the BEST invention ever. The store is overwhelmingly large, and sometimes it's tough to find what you're looking for (especially coming from another chain of grocery stores). If you use their online grocery list creator, however, it will give you a list of the products they carry, their current price, nutritional information, etc. You can adjust the quantities you want to buy, compare prices of generic vs. name-brands, look for all sorts of those "weird" products (bamboo skewers, for example - where the heck are those?!)...and so much more that I'm not even elaborating on. The grocery list printout will list the cost of the item, the quantity, and the exactly location in the store (bamboo skewers are in the International Food section/Asian aisle in case you were wondering).

Now you're probably trying to figure out why on earth I'm raving about this thing. Well, every time I've made a list, I just save it with the date of when I'm going shopping. I saved my list today with, "March 24" and didn't think much of it, until I went to print it out on my desktop. I signed in and went to print out "March 24" and realized that I had a "March 24, 2009." Now, I started looking for an earlier month (I feel as if I've been a loyal shopper there much longer than just a year), but that was the first instance in 2009.

I was thinking of buying a cupcake or cookie to celebrate, but realized that was probably a bit silly (and way too caloric). Instead, I saved $30 with coupons (my obsession with coupons is paying off nicely!), came home, and snuggled up on the couch with my Herr's tortilla chips (half-price from the factory store) and my Wegman's black bean dip, and watched an episode of Shear Genius.

So happy first year, Wegmans! May we continue to enjoy each other's company for many more to come.
