Last night I went grocery shopping for food to last me all of next week. I got everything on my shopping list except a few things (salmon and chicken; I'll buy those later so they'll be more fresh). And guess how much my bill was! $127.91. Holy crap! On the plus side, nearly all of my produce is organic. I suppose that makes it worth it.
So far, between the juicer and all the groceries I've bought, I've spent over $200 on this plan. I'm beginning to think that only rich people can be healthy and skinny.
This is what 127.91 dollars of food looks like...
Most expensive item: pine nuts ($12.97). Whoops, I got a half a pound out of the bulk bin. Guess I would have been better off just buying a jar.
Least expensive item: a single jalapeño pepper ($0.33).
On a more positive note, I cleaned out my entire refrigerator. I threw away a ton of my roommate's old food. I made fresh-squeezed orange juice out of the 5 pound bag of oranges that I know she would never eat. I found stuff in there that definitely would qualify as a science experiment. But now, the fridge is sparkling and full of fresh fruits, vegetables, and almond milk. Yay!
And yes, I know, I need to take down my Christmas tree.
