I ran out of #spoons today. I had already canceled two items on my calendar, and thought I was okay to go #grocery shopping with my husband.


After #Costco, I was just *done.* He's at either Lucky or Safeway right now, picking up the final items we need for our cookout tomorrow ... and I'm here at home.

#autoimmune disease sucks, friends. You never know whether a day will be good, bad or indifferent. Something that was fine to do last time may not be fine to do today ... and vice versa.

@devxvda I have been in presentations and listened to a number of podcasts by other #ActuallyAutistc folks who all call out #grocery #shopping as a major issue. It is for me too. I don't want shopping to be a social experience. Its about finding and purchasing things I need. So I would put it off and go at weird hours. And now I can order online and things I need show up! And I don't even need to meet the person doing it. AWESOME! LOVE!

I'm not gonna do it because I'm #cheap, #broke, and have a modicum of common sense, but...

....I'm at the #grocery, painfully #bored with the things I've had to do the last few days, and very much in a "let's buy $100 of scratch off #lottery tickets out of the vending machine and see what shakes out" kinda mood..

I realize that I never posted the pics from this one grocery store I went to. Probably one of the nicest looking store chains I've ever been to. #grocery #shopping

#Amazon may not have a large market share, but they are making strides in the #Grocery sector. With #WholeFoods and their own branded stores, they are making their presence felt. Plus, their competitive prices and convenience are making them a top player in the market. #AmazonPrime members enjoy even more access to discounts and convenience, making them an even bigger force to be reckoned with! #AmazonGrocery #GroceryWars

Now that the #Tories have demonstrated that their declarations on making work better protected in the #gigeconomy, have proved to be just that: empty declarations, it will come as little surprise to you that in the #grocery delivery sector, couriers/delivery riders are being forced back onto piece rate, insecure contracts.

Its almost like any improvements in conditions were a response to the threat of enhanced #regulation; once the 'threat' was removed, so were the improvements in conditions!

Just one more story on how the giant #grocery #producers #wholesalers & #retailer are gouging us all...Has the price of producing and distributing things like Pepsi actually doubled? Price of potatoes may be up by a couple of dollars - but they are not gettting more at the #farmers gate... Small producers are being treated unfairly & in the end it is consumers who suffer from cost and loss of variety.

‘Supply chain bullying’: Inside the food fight between Canada’s #grocery giants and their #suppliers

“These grocers have all the power,” Kinnear [Yellowfruit founder] said. “And right now there is no system of checks and balances.”
"Food producers say #Loblaws, #Sobeys, #Metro and #Walmart charge fees and penalties so high, some suppliers are going bust. Grocers say fees and chargebacks are standard and the cost of doing business."

Pomysł na wykorzystanie trybu skupienia - po przybyciu do marketu ustawia na #AppleWatch tarczę #ModularDuo z:
- #Grocery z listą zakupów
- #Cheatsheet z numerem Karty Dużej Rodziny (którego zawsze szukam zbyt długo w Notatkach stojąc przy kasie)
- ikonką #Overcast do słuchania podcastu przy większych zakupach

Po opuszczeniu lokalizacji wraca do poprzedniej tarczy. Nie zmienia nic na pozostałych urządzeniach.

This one has been flying around my #Facebook friends list. In and of itself, it’s true. I have no argument with what it says. But there’s a lot it’s not saying, and I can’t help but feel like it’s designed to disparage the #15minuteCity concept by that omission.

First, the concept itself. The idea of the 15-minute city (“#15mC”) is pretty simple: everything you need for your daily life should be within 15 minutes’ #walk. Some definitions have “walk or #bicycle ride,” but I think that drastically weakens the concept.

In other words, a healthy, able-bodied adult should be able to get to all the usual destinations in no more than a quarter of an hour, on foot. I would add to this that #children, the #elderly, and people of all ages with #disabilities should also be able to get where they’re going via accessible #public #transit, in the same amount of time.

All the usual destinations. Which yes, means #grocery #stores, #restaurants, #movie #theaters, etc.—for people who #work there as well as the patrons. And every other kind of #workplace too. Of course you don’t have to work or eat or shop close to home. But the option needs to be there, and the work has to be able to pay for all the rest.

That’s always been part of the concept. If the work criterion is not met, you don’t have a 15mC; you have a theme park, like the post says. Fair enough.

Yes, and? If you have a #house without a roof, you don’t have a house, you have a collection of walls. If you have a plate without #food on it, you don’t have a meal, you have #hunger. If you have a #legislature that can arbitrarily kick out its members for voicing their opinions, you don’t have #liberty, you have #tyranny. Everyone understands this.

So if we agree that the 15mC is a good idea—I certainly think it is—then let’s try to make it happen. This kind of sniping strikes me as less a valid critique and more an attempt to make the whole idea sound impossible.

Maybe that’s not the intent, but it’s sure how it comes across. Yeah … don’t do that.

#NZ online #retail #startup #Supie says #grocery suppliers' requests 'clearly #price-fixing'

I hope Supie spreads south fast.
Meanwhile, from my first visit to #TheWarehouse's wide-ranging grocery section this week, I think the duopoly is already threatened here. #Feilding doesn't have a #PaknSave so I can't compare it with The #Warehouse but some of the #prices looked like serious #competition for #Countdown. I filled my shopping bag for the 20-minute trudge home.

This is just awesome. If you have a minute, please sign. #inflation #food #insecurity #grocery #Canada

@ConserveChange One might ask why we're giving a tax rebate instead of taxing those extra profits the #Grocery chains are raking in, though. Up from 2.4B in 2019 to $5.2B last year - a bit more than that tax break. #cdnpoli

Once again, our #politicians fail us. What the Libs bill as a #grocery credit for Canadians struggling to pay skyrocketing #food bills is actually a gift to the greedy corporate-controlled grocers with their already obscene profits. Are we that gullible to accept this? Where is the regulation that is actually needed?

From what I’ve read of the 2023 federal budget, there is nothing that will actually improve our lives. Again. #CanPoli #economy

I'm going to try to go to the butcher and ask to have my meat served in butcher paper. Trying to reduce ways to remove plastic film from our purchases, as meat is one of the biggest contributor to our plastic waste at home. Even better if we're to bring our own reusable containers instead.

Exit area of a big #American #grocery store an hour before midnight closing:

A woman with a big glass jar of cucumbers walks up. Some ten feet from the receipt check employee, she lifts, then drops the jar, shattering it.

The employee hurries off and returns with cleaning gear a minute later.

Customer is gone. Puzzled, store checks the video footage.

Five fully loaded carts dashed out while the clerk got cleanup gear.

Today was the first day that I utilized the #grocery store known as Mariano's here in the #chicagoland area. Umm, you can purchase up to 3 pints of beer while you shop. I did that, after purchasing 2 pints at a local bar. Holy shit y'all, grocery shopping is awesome! I'm addicted! Well, not sure if it is the good beer or the shopping I'm addicting to, but no more complaining from me!

An est 1.1 million people face #foodinsecurity in Michigan, according to Feeding America.

Crummy photo but my #grocery store has a gnarly #logo.

Horrocks Market grocery store bag logo with cool, metal typeface and strawberry.

Canada’s major grocers would prefer you not refer to “greedflation,” thank you very much...The thing is, Canada’s major grocers, a group that also includes Metro Inc., have the ability to help lay the charges to rest. They decline to do so, however, using a loophole in accounting standards to obscure the facts about their operations.

In a concerted effort to bring our #grocery bill back to $50 a week for the two of us, tonight I'm making #vegeterian vegetable nachos... Where instead of paying the price of a half bag of #potatoes just for a bag of nacho chips, you use far less than that cost of those potatoes to make homemade wedges to eat as your #nachos... I'm adding in some of my homemade Green Tomatillo Relish I put down eariler in the year #TasteOfSouthAmerica #Budget #Food #Kai #FamilyFriendly #FrugalFoodie #FoodPics

Pot of red kidney beans, red onion, relish, coriander & tomato sauce on the Woodstove with a spoon in it.
Steamer pot of cubed pumpkin & diced onions to go with the vegeterian vegetable nachos I'm making for dinner
Parboiling a pot of Māori & Irish potatoes, cut into wedges with skins on, which are both red & purple, to bake in the woodstove and use as nacho chips for the vegeterian vegetable nachos I'm making.
Jar of Green Tomatillo Relish marked 3/22 that I made earlier this year, you can see how red and yummy it looks through the glass. The jar is sitting on a large white plate in our cold room.

Just need to make $40 more so I can afford #grocery delivery this month. I'm doing #sketches on my #Kofi for $5-10 #donations if you don't want full blown #commissions from me!

While I didn't get a lot done today, I did get some bulk #grocery shopping done.
There were some good discounts on non-perishable goods such as toilet paper and goods with long shelf-life such as beans and frozen protein sources, so I turned myself into a human pack-mule.
Backpack filled to the rim, and sturdy reusable plastic bags (2 on either side) hanging from the front, weighing me down an extra 30-ish kilogrammes.
Gotta do something when you don't own a car.

I think I overdid the #grocery shopping run...
Not as much on what I got, but more on how heavy it was to carry it home in, and hanging from, my backpack while walking home.
Also probably shouldn't have made that detour while carrying it to play a bit of #PokémonGO & #WizardsUnite and get some fresh air.

My neck, shoulders and back are sore, but my #dailies are done, I got some #dailyExercise and we hopefully don't need to do groceries for a few days.
