I can go in the store and stick to the list of five things. When they are with me, it suddenly becomes, "We need this, this, oh and this, too." I do not keep close tabs on what is at home unless I am looking for it and realise we do not have it. I am taking their word and trusting that. Bad idea every time.
I never send Matt to the store. I used to, and he would come back with everything BUT what I asked for. I just have to look at him, laugh, and roll my eyes.
