How many times have you run to the store for last minute items already today?

Between yesterday and today I think I have made about 6 trips. I am preparing some of the dishes for tomorrow and I needed more eggs, butter, etc.
Plus my husband forgot to get something for our youngest so I had to run out & find it.
Plus things like band-aids and ice for hubbies knee since he just had surgery 2 days ago!

  • Why is it that you think you have every thing and come to find out you make 6 more trips to get things for the meal or the stocking or whatever. I am tired of running to the store but so far today it's only been once & 1 time too many it was packed

  • None today! We thought we might have to make a grocery run for bread but figured we could live without it especially since we're leaving Sunday morning to go out of town. Yesterday we made a last minute trip to Target and a very last minute, spontaneous trip to Wal-mart. I'm glad I'm done!

  • I just sent my hubby to the store for soda, pie pans and beer. His brothers are coming over tomorrow and they prefer beer to soda so I thought I'd be nice and get them some. Hopefully it's the only trip we need to make today.

  • Considering the nearest stores are 20 miles away, and our roads are absolutely awful (icy, snowy), absolutely none! I planned to stay home today and even if I wanted to leave I wouldn't dare - too many accidents & ditchings happening today!
