The commissary and pay day No groceries in our house today
September 28, 2012 at 11:06 AM

 Sent DH to the commissary today with a nice size list.  He just called and said there wasn't a parking space to be had. Not sure what we were thinking sending him today. Guess we'll push through until next Tuesday.

    Some ancient Eastern medicine encourages you to drink your first morning urine. I saw it on Nat Geo.

    Quoting m.smitty.xo:

    Well it is sterile until it hits an unclean surface....


    Quoting 4ever-SJ:

    I would drink my own piss before going to the commissary on payday.

    In some parts of the world, they actually do bee sting therapy to cure illnesses. Ouch.

    I get it OP. I say we don't have any food all the time. It doesn't mean our cupboards are literally bare or that we're starving, it just means I need to get cre8ive in the kitchen and the family may or may not like the concoction I come up with, lol. Funny thing is, some of my kids favorite dishes were the result of throwing a bunch of stuff together and calling it dinner because we had nothing else. And being low on groceries doesn't mean you're poor or have money problems. There were lots of times we had money in the bank and no groceries.........because I absolutely despise grocery shopping :P

    Ours in ok wasn't taxed :/ that's why we shopped there because every other store in ok taxed food .

    Quoting gunsgirl:

    I never ever shop at the commisary during the week of pay day. and I really don't save all that much unless I need meat.  with the added 5% tax added on at the end it really is not all that much cheaper than walmart.

    It isn't a tax, it is a 5% surcharge and all commissaries charge it. It is at all commissaries.
