I sent my husband, who was unaccustomed to grocery shopping, to pick up a few things. To help him quickly locate the items, I told him I placed the aisle number in front of each thing on the list. When he returned I was shocked to see him with so many bags. He promptly pointed out that 4 dozen eggs, 5 pounds of bacon, 7 bags of sugar, and 8 heads of lettuce take up a lot of room!
