on a budget

I'm sure you can all relate, but I was on a rather strict budget at the grocery store tonight -- $68 strict, to be exact! Between a couple of specials and two member discounts, I squeaked out of the co-op with everything on my list, plus a couple of small impulse buys (mac and cheese, a persimmon, a Naked Juice smoothie,) for $67.99! Couldn't have planned that if I had tried. :)

example

BULK:
organic, local black beans
organic, fair-trade, locally roasted coffee
local, organic rolled oats
organic jasmine rice

CHEESE:
sharp cheddar

FROZEN:
local, organic garden veggie pizza
organic apple juice concentrate

HERBS & SPICES:
kava root

PACKAGED GROCERY:
non-GMO cornstarch
Crystal hot sauce

Happy almost Friday!
