This week’s shopping was done at the local produce stand as well as at a local grocery store outlet. Everything to the left of the produce that is in the center was .50 cents each. This included Annie’s Cereal, Barbara’s Bakery Cereal, Spectrum Vegan and Eggless Mayo, Organic Cookies, Garden of Eatin Chips, Biscotti and some Juice.
Besides the watermelon, everything to the right of the produce was either .99 cents or $1.50. Only the Cascadian Farm cereal was $1.50, and the rest was .99 including Coombs Organic Maple Syrup!! Yeah, that was an exciting find to be sure! The organic popcorn was also a screaming deal at .99 cent per package. I also got two bags of Ball canning salt for .99 cents. My beautiful Mother (kiss, kiss), found me a Sears Pressure Canner for $15 at a thrift store this past weekend (pics to come), so I am thrilled that I will actually be attempting some canning this year.
The middle produce was $13 from a Farmer’s Market, and the Watermelon was $6 (ouch). Total cost of everything from the Outlet Store was $26.90.
Last week we traded our two baby chickens (you hadn’t seen pictures of them yet) to a local man for 3 dozen eggs. The chicks were about a month old, but we didn’t have room for them after getting the four laying hens. I also ordered organic beans online and bought organic coffee at Cost Plus World Market (our absolute favorite coffee!!) about two weeks ago:
