I know that food prices are constantly rising and there is a lot of angst about the price of fruit and vegetables. We recently discovered a fruit barn not too far from us and we are very happy with the prices and quality.
I went and bought some fruit and vegetables this afternoon. Here is what I selected.
1 head of broccoli
1 knob of Australian garlic
1 lebanese cucumber
This cost me $11.40. I would like to know if anyone could honestly construe that as expensive.
On the way home I stopped to fill the car with fuel. While I was waiting in the queue to pay I noticed the sign above the ice-cream freezer cabinet. “Magnum Temptation $4.00” My bag of fruit and vegetables was cheaper than 3 of these fancy ice-creams! I know which I would rather have.
How do you manage your food budget?
