I have a problem.
August 21, 2010 § 5 Comments
I spend way too much on groceries. Each week my hand reaches for a new and more exciting type of sprouted bread, super grain or sea vegetable, that is invariably more expensive and further removed from my student budget.
Today I broke my PB of grocery expenditure.
It needs to stop here.
On the bright side, my pantry is now a haven of exotic, healthful goodies and my fridge an oasis of cool leafy green!
Mmmm sprouted spelt bread. So sweet, so doughy. I sliced it up and froze it promptly, to avoid the usual gluttony.
Be mine, roasted pumpkin hummus. Hey, you already are!
New seaweed love; Wakame. Ahhh I love the taste sensation of sucking on a big, washed up piece of driftwood. No really, can’t get enough weedy delight.
Buying nuts in bulk hurts me in my wallet, but now that i’m determined to make my own nut milk, it’s a worthwhile investment.
Tried this variety of my beloved Clippers tea at a friends place the other day. It is gloooorious!
New hand cream. Like bobby pins, my hand creams tend to mysteriously evaporate into the fourth dimension, never to return. I hope this one sticks around though, it’s delectable.
If war should break out, I’m stocked.
Lunch was a snacky affair that featured new hummus, toasted spelt bread, salad and an apple.
I’m serious about reigning in my grocery bill, so am considering:
- Joining a food co-op and getting a box of fruit & veg a week.
- Buying a plot at a local community garden and trying my hand at edible gardening.
- Quitting college & procuring full-time work to support my habit.
Option c) is thus far the most realistic.
Hope you’re weekends are swell! Picnic antics with some old chums tomorrow is looking good; diligent study is not. C’est la vie!
