5 for Friday...BOGO

It's Friday, so you know what that means! Time for my "5 for Friday."

I love making lists and today's list is...five things I've purchased way too much of during my grocery store's buy one/get one free sales.

5) Sweet Baby Ray's spicy barbecue sauce. This is our favorite BBQ sauce, and when it's on sale we like to stock up for the summer. We likes us some Sweet Baby Ray on the grill with chicken and pork! It's the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. We have 4 bottles of Ray in the pantry.

4) Boneless skinless chicken breasts. There are exactly 5 bags of frozen chicken in my freezer. Chicken of some variety is generally my fall-back meal, and how can I fall back onto it if there isn't any?!

3) Laundry detergent. I current have 6 detergents. SIX! Christ, how dirty do I think our clothes are? Who needs 6 detergents?!

2) Capri Sun. There are 7 cartons in the basement for Bella's school lunches. I'm afraid the grocery store will call and tell me they need some Capri Suns to sell.

1) Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies. I hate to admit it, but we possess 8 boxes of OCPs. Hey, they're lunch snacks! Don't judge me. And keep your hands off! Nobody doesn't like a Little Debbie. That bitch can make a prepackaged snack cake like nobody's business! I could probably open a Little Debbie snack cake stand down on the corner and put that little lemonade-selling kid outta business in about 7 minutes. People would come from miles to grab a Little Debbie.

So tell me, what do you tend to over-buy when it's on sale? C'mon, I know there's *something*! Fess up.

I usually by too much of whatever meat is on sale, too much cream cheese blocks, and too much fruit. But on the upside I always seem to need shampoo and Charmin!

we love sweet baby ray's! YUM. Around here, because my husband is a freak, we have Knox Unflavored Gelatin. I think he buys it every time he shops because there were four unopened packages of it. Plus two opened packs, each with one missing. ???

OMG, finally another laundry detergent whore!! I have to have a variety because I like to play around with the different scents.

Don't even get me started with liquid fabric softener!

1. I want some of that Sweet Baby Ray's. OMG, it sounds good!

2. You can never have enough chicken. Period.

3. I hate to admit it, but I kind of suck at grocery shopping. I can't think of a single thing I've ever stocked up on. Not a one.

~hangs head in shame~

cfoxes--Back off the meat, and you won't need as much Charmin. LOL

GF--Knox?! What kind of kinky stuff are you guys into? LOL

Candice--I'm with you! A gal needs to be wrapped in fluffy, fragrant, softness.

Diva--You're excused from not over-buying because of the whole NYC apartment life. But if you applied yourself, you could probably stock on on small boxes of jello or salt or something.
