How’s your grocery shopping going these days?
For me, I have couple reactions every Saturday when I push my cart with the squeaky wheel around the aisles.
Sometimes, I feel like a grumpy little old lady. “Bah!” I’ll cry out. “This used to be $2.99 in the good old days, now it’s $4.68.”
Or I sometimes feel like a hardcore member of Generation X: I put on my best disillusioned face while thinking “Another recession? Whatever.”
After my latest trip, I decided the only appropriate response to grocery shopping while inflations rages at a 40-year high is to laugh about it.
So today I’m sharing the best grocery shopping memes with you, dear readers, to help you beat the inflation blues. We’re all in pain and, well, laughter IS the best medicine.
The grocery shopping meme about those plastic bags
This meme reassures me that I must not be the only one trying to open those plastic bags.
The grocery shopping meme about when they rearrange the store
Ugh, nothing is more frustrating to this mature adult than when I head to, say, Aisle 5 for bacon bits only to find they completely rearranged the salad condiments aisle and the bacon bits are now found on the southwest side of Aisle 7.
It’s mean and makes me feel like I’m losing my mind.
The grocery shopping meme about the music
I love my 80s music so the only way the grocery store can appease me after they rearrange stuff is by playing my jams from the era of big hair and big shoulder pads.
80s music soothes my soul and helps me forget I’m paying $3.91 for a galloon of milk that last year cost $2.77!
The grocery shopping meme about the baskets
Finally, don’t you wish all grocery stores had empty baskets waaaaaaay in the back by the milk? After all, you run in for one thing, but before you know it you are carrying 27 things and NEED a basket.
I hope these grocery shopping memes put a smile on your face and that your smile lasts through your next trip to the store to help you beat the inflation blues.
