Definitely Cry Over Expired Milk

My impulse purchasing has become a real problem as of late. I am not even paying attention anymore. Last night I was picking up a few beers and for some reason felt compelled to buy some milk too. I don’t even know why. I never buy milk. So, this morning I wake up and realize that I have milk, which is a rare commodity in my fridge. I open the little bottle and take a big swig.

It took me about half a second after I already swallowed my sip to realize that something was not right. I looked at the expiration date immediately.

Thanks for leaving me with no option but to chug a beer at 11 am, because I had no other beverages with which to chase my rancid milk.


So that means that this milk has been sitting in some gas station cooler for over two weeks, and I picked it up, bought Β it, and drank it. How does this happen? Maybe I should just stop buying things all together. I am not very good at purchasing.

Before you watch my new vlog below, I have a secret to tell you! I am trying to grow my YouTube channel. I have a lot of ideas floating around for video sketches. If you enjoy my videos please spread them around to your friends and subscribe to my YouTube channel. You can view older videos on my channel or by clicking BeccaTube at the top of my blog. I would greatly appreciate it. I’ll send you all kittens in long johns! Thanks!

  1. HA! Oh man, that’s some pretty good random items πŸ™‚

  2. When I was in college, I had 5 guy roommates. We never cleared out the fridge. It kind of became a sick game we would play, having to guess what was edible.

  3. If you only just bought that milk, you should take it back and complain. Here in the UK it is illegal for a store to sell out-of-date foodstuffs and the shop assistants have to make sure that new stuff goes to the back and old stuff gets reduced and then taken off sale.

  4. I worked at a gas station my last two years of college. As opposed to expired twinkies, Coke, chips, etc (which the product vendors handled), expired milk was the only thing in the store that employees had to deal with. Nobody really gave a shit so we’d constantly forget to pull the old milk.

  5. Books. Books, books, books, books. And more books. And some more piled on top of the other books. Swimming in a sea of books. I personally keep all of the three book stores in my small town in business.

  6. Spider-Man ball? Plastic frog? Don’t give this crap to Goodwill, give it away as prizes to your adoring readers. Don’t be selfish, Becca.

  7. The corporations have us mind controlled! Resist! Resist at all costs! πŸ™‚

  8. Shame the boots aren’t your size – are they 40? If so send ’em my way! EUR 40 is… I don’t know what … can anyone help me out here?!

  9. I have a tendency to make late night dairy purchases to make it look like we NEEDED FOOD and I just HAPPENED to pick up another six pack or bottle of chard (dairy products as an alcohol beard..hmmmm) but you have me rethinking this strategy now…

  10. Ugh! I feel for you. Bad milk is the worst.

  11. Stright legit, I love coming back from my blogging breaks. Every single time I do, hands down, it’s to one of your Becca Tubes! Holla! I’ll figure out how to subscribe to your channel to keep myself up to date. And of course, you know I’ll spead the word via FB and twits.

  12. Just reblogged this on You’ve Been Hooked, Becca.
    Thanks being so badass and negligent with your shopping regiment….

  13. I have to say, I like the hat and the socks. I have a bunch of knee-high socks like that that. The frog kinda freaked me out at first, but then I thought, “Why don’t *I* own a plastic frog?”

    • I liked the socks too, until I wore them out in public and my guy friends told me I looked like I was about to go shoot a porno. Really?

      The frog made me question a lot of things, but then I realized I have a plastic frog doing yoga and that’s actually pretty cool. Except that I hate frogs. What is going on?!

  14. I will so relieve you of tha hat. Gorgeous! Clean out the junk to fill it with more, wait til you have kids.
    We drink two lots of milk here and I can tell you, having to drink ‘the other stuff’ when mine went off, was nasty!

  15. The video was hilarious. I will share your YouTube channel around. I’ve been a subscriber for a while now.

    Hubby is the worst at impulse purchasing. He bought 2000 tortillas last week because they were half price. All the cupboards and drawers are exploding with them. The kids ask what’s for dinner and I say ‘tortillas’, and they groan. I think we will hate them for the rest of eternity after this!

    • Thank you Steph! I really appreciate you doing that. It’s something that I really love to do and share.

      So every night is a fiesta at your house, eh? That’s too funny! I like tortillas. I’ll take some off of your plate.

  16. I remember about your dad and expired milk (I tried to locate but couldn’t find it).
    The apron is just… adorable?
    I have issues with impulse shopping when I do groceries, I spend too much money on food, about the same I pay for rent, I need help and a bigger fridge.

    • Haha! That is fantastic that you remember that post. My dad was a hit, wasn’t he?! Milk is powerless to that man, good or spoiled!

      You could just invite all of the foodie bloggers over to make you a years worth of dinners with all of your groceries, then freeze them, and you will never have to go to the store or cook again! I am really smart, I know.

  17. LOL! I WANT that apron! The video is a classic πŸ˜‰

  18. Ack. Off milk. Nothing worse!
    Becca, good luck with your impulse buying! Do you impulse buy bargains, or regular priced stuff? Bargains is a better idea…

    • Thanks Tom, it’s definitely something I need to work on. I can tell you one thing though, I am going to be checking the dates of every dairy product I ever buy from here on out. It was horrendous!

      I don’t discriminate either. I will impulse buy from regular price to bargain prices!

  19. It’s when you impulse buy something you impulse bought the week before because you forgot (blotted out?) the last purchase/
    I don’t want to talk about it.

  20. Fucking hilarious!!! Ive done that at least twice. That semi-warm, sour cream cheese, funky warm and chunky taste is a hard one to forget. I probably should dial it down a bit, eh?

    Something tells me you’re not gonna have any milk in your fridge again for awhile.

    That video is killer.
