    Oh Mister, do you know that you can kiss my a$$? Somehow I don’t think Burl has any idea how much prime rib or filet costs, or a cell plan for that matter. I’m sure he is using U-Stor-It’s phone for everything.

    There is a great little app called “Out of Milk”
    Just speak your grocery list on the app and check each item off as you grocery shop.
    Totally eliminates paper and pen.

    Late posting for me due to killer sinus headache.

    Good Morning All

    Burl is an @$$. I make a detailed grocery list for three different stores, along with corresponding coupons, and my DH does the actual marketing. He rings me at least three times from each store for such things as unadvertised sales, if there’s a discrepancy in the advert/merchandise or if we’ve forgot to put something on the list. It’s not as if the phone has to be surgically removed from his ear. Convenience is what the sodding things were invented for. Just because idjits like Burl are technologically impaired doesn’t mean that legitimate use of cell phones should be banned.

    @purple sky

    I totally agree…………and if you are really cognizant of prices, they also have a bar code that scans the item and shows who has the best price.

    I don’t have a ‘smart’ phone so I can’t use any ‘apps’ like that (although I’m aware of them) but I get weekly e-mail from the three stores we frequent, and I compare their sales/prices from all three to see which store’s list gets the item in question — if at all. If the item is still too dear, we pass. Aside from milk, bread, eggs, OJ and bananas, the rule in our house is ‘if it ain’t on sale AND we don’t have a coupon, we don’t get it.’ I stock-pile if I can, so we’ve got a lovely pantryful of goodies, against weeks when there are few sales and/or coupons. I’m not ‘cheap’, I’m just a thrifty Scot! HAH!

    My ex-BF and I used to shop at two different stores, comparing prices via cellphone. After awhile, i noticed some people following me: if I put an item into the cart, they would put one or a few in their carts as well, but if I put an item back, they ignored that items. Glad to know I was a leader in the local economy.

    Thanks for the well wishes for the headache.
    A piping hot cup of coffee and 1/2 hour in the Jacuzzi did the trick.

    Bacon ($6.26 lb here)……..Orange juice($7.29 gallon Tropicana Grovestand w/lots of pulp) and Milk ($4.45 a gallon) are weekly staples for me also.

    I tried that app but it directed me to web prices not stores. So I quit using it. Maybe they improved it ?That was almost a year ago.
    Burl and Joy need to mind their own business. Her cell may just cost her 49.00 a month for all he knows so where is the savings for pricier meat??

    One Thanksgiving Mom brought a pear with a feather stuck in it to the eatin’ crate. Before Dad began to carve he preemptively smacked his, um, sister, Christine. “You think you so smart?” was all she could say.

    We knew she brought it on herself. She won the wish stem pull three years in a row. Auntie Christie, we called her.

    Sounds like prices here in east central Nevada. Good to hear your headache is better. :)

    NOTE: This is the first time a cell phone has been featured in The Dinette Set as far as I know…… ! ! !
    People blocking the food isle while screaming into a phone are real PITAs……………….
