A $70 shopping trip

Today, instead of chronicling my eats the way I’ve been doing, I decided to show you what an average, $70 grocery trip looks like. In my article ‘15 ways to save on groceries‘, I discuss our typical eats and what we purchase, but sometimes a picture is worth more than words.

fruit:
2 pineapples (on sale), 5 lemons, 1 lime, 3 apples, a big bag of oranges (about 10), 7 avocados, a whackload of bananas (about 15)

vegetables:
3 tomatoes, 3 sweet potatoes, 3 english cucumbers (sale!), 3 field cucumbers (another sale!), 2 bunches of broccoli, 6 yellow/orange bell peppers, 1 green bell pepper, 1 head romaine, 3 bunches kale, 1 bunch spinach, grape tomatoes, snow peas, some white button mushrooms (about 6)

other:
green mammoth olives, pumpkin seeds, cashews, black beans, a can of crushed tomatoes, extra firm tofu and soy milk.
This should get us through most of the week, though there will be another trip in there somewhere for a few odds and ends, usually for soy milk, avocados or bananas.

Until next time! 🙂

    I noticed you buy the green label tofu. You should go to Seoul Mart and buy the Korean tofu. It tastes sooooooo much better! IMHO.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the tip! I'll head down there next time I desire tofu, which is always often 🙂
