Why I've been Married for 30 Years

My husband "gets" me. He understands that, while I may not be the most organized person in the world, I do love to be organized, and I "think" like an organized person. I am an "every thing in it's place and a place for every thing" kind of girl in spirit, though not necessarily in practice. I am a list-maker extraordinaire. So, among the many wonderful presents my husband gave me for Christmas, he bought me this: It's called SmartShopper Grocery List Organizer -- that's right - it's a voice-activated grocery and shopping list organizer! How cool is that! I normally have a shopping list and pencil on the door of my refrigerator and keep a running list of what I need to buy at the store. But now - but now! - I simply push a button and say the item I need and POOF! it's recorded. When I'm ready to go grocery shopping, I hit the PRINT button, and hi ho hi ho... off to Krogers I go! Organized! The list even groups items together -- dairy products, vegetables, canned goods, beverages, etc. -- which is something I never did (though dreamed about) with my hand written list. I placed a little box on top of my refrigerator for freebie and "must use soon" coupons. I input those (by just talking) into the Smart Shopper to include them on my grocery shopping list so I don't miss out on the coupon savings. Love it, love it. Not only that, but you can make more than one list at a time -- so if I buy cleaning and paper products at one store, and general grocery items at another -- this little goohidget will make more than one list! No printer cartridges are required -- it uses thermofax type paper. It does take 4 double-A batteries. Just one more little corner of my life that will be more organized now!

I know exactly what you man about "he gets me". Ricky "gets me" too! What would we do without them... We are a lucky pair of old broads aren't we! ;)
