It’s a multiple-picture week.
This is my produce, none of which is local, because farmer’s markets aren’t open here yet (and I did try signing up for a CSA, but the programs here are full already. Boo. I did get on a waiting list, though).
I already have zucchini, peppers, onions, and carrots in the fridge, so I didn’t need much in the way of vegetables.
This is my meat. I almost bought a package of Laura’s Lean Beef, which is supposed to be all-natural and such, but I noticed that the package said nothing about whether the cows were pastured or grass-fed, so I put it back. If I’m going to pay $5/pound for beef, I want to make sure that it’s a lot different than the $1.50/pound beef.
This is all of the refrigerated/frozen food I bought. I normally buy my eggs from my blog reader, but I’m just about out and so I bought a package to hold me over until I get some more local eggs.
And this is everything else. I got the cereal for about $1 a box and because I bought it, I got a coupon for a free gallon of milk next week. The deodorant is normally priced at $3.19, but they were on sale for $2 this week, and I had a coupon for $1 off of 2. So, I got them for $1.50 each (see, I do buy toiletries sometimes!).
I spent $55.14 at Aldi and $46.01 at Weis, for a total of $101.15.
