This morning I woke up at 4:30 a.m. to a horrifying realization:  I had not put the cold groceries in the refrigerator.  As I hopped out of bed and navigated the dark hallway, I began mentally tabulating how much money it would take to replace what would surely be room temperature food by now.  Here's what I got:
  1. two packages of fresh pizza dough @ $2.79 each
  2. 3 blocks of cheese @ $2
  3. six cartons of yogurt @ $0.50
           Total:  $14.58 worth of groceries.

That made me a little sick to my stomach.

Groceries make me crazy.  I am a reluctant coupon-er; I hate how much time it takes to deal with coupons, but I cannot argue with the results.

So at 4:30 this morning, I looked at the yogurt, cheese, and dough (which was trying to rise right out of its bag), and do you know what I did?  I put it all in the fridge, every last bit.  And fed it to my family today.  So far we all feel fine.

We are still alive. No one from my family has read this post. It is my own dark secret.
