Farmers markets are a pain in the ass.

Give me one store that carries everything.

We buy probably 80 percent of our food from Aldi.

We’ve had an Aldi for a while. Never even been in it. Publix is opening here this weekend.

No less than three of my Facebook friends have posted paragraphs about their experience at the new Whole Foods 365 that just opened. I'm not convinced it's a cool place. Sounds like a Trader Joe's -- light on meat and produce and heavy on store brand packaged stuff.

Coincidentally, what is opening up around here is the Wal Mart marketplace. Just a Wal Mart grocery store.

Moved to a different zip code with a different HEB. It's going to take some getting used to.

This one is a lot bigger. Like, Costco big. You can't just walk in for eggs and orange juice. The carts are bigger too. Their cheese and beer selection is dismal, they don't sell the hand and dish soap that I like, and the music they play is not very upbeat. Basically it's a Sam's Club with smaller portions. Doesn't even feel like an HEB. I don't know what to do.
