I just got home from the grocery store and again, I am dismayed at how EXPENSIVE it is!
Those berries? On sale! Blackberries for a pint container were $1, the strawberries for a 1lb container $2.50, and the pint of blueberries was $2.00. Considering how we ALL love fruit around here, I thought that was a great deal, especially in the winter.
However, the overall bill was AGAIN over $150 and I don’t understand it. The only meat I purchased was chicken breasts (on sale) and a rotisserie chicken for chicken salad for my lunches this week.
I menu plan AND write out a specific grocery list. I don’t buy extras. I do know I buy a LOT of produce and I am not willing to give that up in favor of processed junk.
The cashier even made a comment to me that she’s never seen me spend less than $100 a week on groceries. I don’t know if I should be offended or not.
I feel like either I will spend a ton of money on healthy GOOD food, or spend barely any money on food that will be slowly killing us over time. The second of which is simply not an option.
Do you have any tricks, tips, suggestions on how to help cut down the grocery bill in the winter without sacrificing healthy produce?
