Sticking it to the Man - No Supermarket Shopping for a Month!

Lately I feel as though I am always at the supermarket. While I only duck in for a couple of items, I always end up with a shopping basket filled to the brim of other things we "need". Damn you product placement people making me want to buy everything I see, damn you!

Since I like to set myself 'mini challenges' to spice up my life a little, I have decided that I will not be setting foot into a supermarket for the month of June. Unfortunately I failed to check how much toilet paper we had before I made this claim. My bad.

I will still be buying grocery items just from other sources, so it really isn't going to be much of a challenge at all. Or maybe it will be, who knows!

I think we could all be supporting our local community a little more, so I will be purchasing the items we need from farmer's markets and small family owned grocers stores. Alternatively, I may consider bartering my skills for required items, if I should find any interested parties.

Righteo.... best get onto doing a google search to find out what others use in loo of real toilet paper. See what I did there? A play on words... Funny, right?

Oh, and if you're planning on coming to visit me any time soon, make sure you bring sugar for your coffee. We're just about out!


  1. I'll swap you a pack of toilet rolls for some illustrator knowledge!
    Good luck with your challenge :)

    See you next Monday x

  2. Tool funny! Love it!

  3. Been there, done that! Tissues, paper towels, napkins that collect in the car from drive-thru restaurants....barter with the neighbors :-)

    Good luck with the challenge!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. It really means the world to me! Enjoy your day xx
