    1x Tacky $15 sunglasses. I mean, they have to look DECENT, but they can't be EXPENSIVE.

    6x Ginger Beer bottles. If you're doing manly man work on Smogon, you need Stamina, and Ginger Beer gives you that great overpowering taste with all the fun of sobriety.

    1x Tube of that Shampoo that doesn't hurt if it gets in your eyes. Seriously, it actually hurts mildly less.

    1x King sized packets of Lays chips, because they didn't have Pringles.

    Okay, I'm back, and this tournament has ended.

    What I bought:

    - 1 loaf Archer Farms sourdough bread
    (for making grilled cheese! I already have butter though, sorry SlimMan)
    - 1 bag Market Pantry 8 ct. hot dog buns
    (I have like a bulk bag of like 30ish hot dogs from Costco that I'm working through, soo)
    - 1 bag Kraft shredded Colby Jack cheese 8oz
    - 1 bag Market Pantry sliced Colby Jack cheese 8oz
    (I'm lazy... I do have a cheese grater but these have roughly the same price per ounce as a block of colby jack, so I was like "whatever")
    - 2 cups Archer Farms yogurt
    (they're good snacks)
    - 1 bag Archer Farms organic frozen mixed vegetables
    (they're good for making fried rice with, also they don't go bad and I'm lazy)
    - 1 bag of Swedish Fish
    (...I wanted a snack)

    Anyway, there's no eggs or milk or butter or a lot of stuff like that, because honestly I still have a lot of stuff, this run was just to replenish what I ran out of.

    edit: add the brands in case they're relevant

    edit 2: if you can't tell from the store brands, I went to Target

    edit 3: oh yeah, and for people making "Drielmei" jokes and wondering why they were deleted, I broke up with Drielmei last week, also she hated it when people joked about her anyway :|
