If you find a better deal in a different size, just get what’s cheaper and alter the amount you need accordingly.


If you don’t have a spice on your list, please check with the rest of us before buying it.  This will help us cut our costs.  There are only a few on here that I don’t have, so I can bring ours.  Probably the chili powder and other ones that have a lot, we should just go ahead and buy.  Mostly, I’m thinking of the ones that we only need a tablespoon or two.


I tried to divide it somewhat evenly, but if you see something on someone else’s list that you have and you want to bring that please feel free.  If you bring meat from your own freezer, it will count as a receipt.  For example, if you have 10 lbs of hamburger in your freezer, we’ll count it as 20 dollars, and we’ll try to figure out other groceries as best as possible.    When you buy your groceries, please turn in your receipt as soon as you can and put your initials on it.  The sooner we do this, the sooner we can figure out charges and reimbursements.  Some of you will be spending more on shopping than you are supposed to be paying, you will be reimbursed once we figure out how much your total is. 


If anyone finds your list a hardship please let me know right away.  I can buy some of the things and help out some.  There are seven of you involved – 4 (30 meals), 1 (21 meals) and 2 (10 meals).  So the cost for everyone will be different.  We’ll get this all worked out.


Any questions, please feel free to send me an e-mail.  Bring the groceries to the church on Saturday morning between 8 and 9.  The sooner we start, the sooner we’re done. J




P.S.  I will continue to be working on organizing the day, so that it will run smoothly.  Again, because this is the first time for us to do this, there will probably be some hiccups.  But regardless, we’ll have a bunch of fellowship and fun.  Oh, also you may want to bring a sandwich or something for lunch.
