Grocery Shopping

Went grocery shopping for the 2nd time at metro,which is a huge grocery store. Our apartment building runs a free shuttle there and the driver waits for an hour for us. Since we had been last week I had a better idea of wear food was in the store. However it is still challenging trying to read labels not in English and find food for lunches.

I enjoyed wandering the aisles looking at the different products and trying to figure out what some of it is. My main goal was to buy some tuna fish to take for lunch during the week since I usually don't have time to go out for lunch. I found the tuna at 2.50 per can but bought 4 cans-this costs more than anything else I bought. Decided to buy a can of seaweed flavored Pringles- haven't worked up nerve to taste them yet.

It is interesting to see the brands and different types of products. I went looking for some body lotion and found some plain Vaseline aloe lotion. However the majority of the lotion was brands that had whitening ingredients in them, promising to lighten your skin in 2 weeks. Apparently light skin that isn't suntanned is preferred here thus the purpose of this lotion.

I gave up on oatmeal -doesn't exist. $30 later I was home with tuna, low fat pudding, 12 pack of Pepsi light (diet Pepsi), seaweed Pringles, lotion, cheese and crackers. Should last me 2 weeks.
