Shopping Diary Challenge: What You Learned

I’m aquiver with anticipation…

Last week I offered you a challenge: To keep notes about your food shopping for an entire week. Quite a few of you signed on (yay, you!). Maybe it was the chance to win a Whole Foods gift card, or maybe you’re just curious, like me. Either way, it’s time to share.

In order to be entered in the drawing, leave a comment below telling what you learned about your shopping habits. Do you fall for fancy packaging? Spend more when you’re hungry? Take a really long time selecting the perfect mango? Drop beaucoup bucks on pedigreed pork? Inquiring minds want to know! I’d be thrilled if you go into detail, but if you only learned one simple, eye-opening thing, that’s fabulous too.

Because some of you weren’t able to start keeping notes right away, I’m going to give you a few days to report here. Leave your comments by 8PM Eastern time on Monday, June 24, to be eligible to win. I’ll use to select a winner on Monday night, which I’ll announce on Parents Need to Eat Too’s Facebook page. (If you haven’t already “liked” the page, now’s a good time to do so! And leave a comment or share one of the posts there, to be sure it’ll show up in your news feed.)

I can’t wait to hear what you’ve learned—watch for a roundup post about it, coming soon.

So… Whadja learn?
