Some people say that the Internet is made of cats.
However, I think voyeurism is a major fuel for the Internet. Especially for a site like Offbeat Home: sure, a tutorial here or a smart lifehack there is great, but what you really want is to see the interesting ways people live. Some of them are different from you because they live in another country, some of them have a polyamorous relationship and their boyfriend and girlfriend come to stay with them every weekend, and some of them live in a house completely unlike your own.
My point is this: everyone wants to know what your life looks like (not just your home), so we’ll start here:
Show us your grocery store!
Write it up, take a photo, or send me a blog post you’ve already written. I want to see them all.
Here’s one of my groceries:
This is Graziano’s. They’ve been around Des Moines’ south side foreverrrr and sell the best cheeses, sauces, spices, pasta noodles, and olive oils around. They’re also famed for their sausage, but I don’t know thing one about that. The store smells like Italian spice and I have a hard time not buying everything.
They’re a teeny store, but we eat a ton of the stuff they carry so it’s not a hassle. And? Since they’ve been around for 60 years, I’m pretty sure the family long ago paid off their mortage, so I can buy gourmet-level food for Kraft prices.
Your turn! Here’s a little project for the week: show us your grocery store! You can email me at [email protected] or post it in our Offbeat Home Flickr group by this Sunday, June 12th. We’ll share our favorites next week!
