But right now it's increasingly looking like we might be forced to.
I ran out of my fiber supplement as of tonight. I may be able to locate a replacement if we have some in the house. Even if not, while perhaps not as rich of a source I can find ways to get fiber in my diet. (In fact I already have done so by largely switching to a cereal-based diet.)
...But we're also low on other essentials. Orange juice. Milk, down to our last container. Bread. And so on and so forth. Things which might require...gasp...SHOPPING in order to fix. Us. Kids. Shopping. Or doing the lazy bachelor route and learning to live without these things by simply adapting to go without.
In that regard, not having parents around kinda sucks.
But oh well, we'll manage.
