So far, so good

Day 1 is drawing to a close and so far, so good.  I do have a bit of a headache, but not terrible.  I did the monthly grocery shopping tonight and that probably contributed as much as the lack of soda.  While I was out, I priced several items that I would like to begin purchasing in the near future.

Organic Coconut Oil - $6.99 (I believe this was for 16 oz., but I already have some from a previous use, so I'll use that first)
Organic Cane Sugar - $1.99/pound
Organic Whole Wheat Flour - $1.79 pound

I am looking at placing an order from Azure Standard, but the drop site is a couple hundred miles from me.  My sister-in-law and brother-in-law live close, but I hate to bother them if I don't have to.  Plus, that will be a costly venture and I want to make sure that I can swing my new budget before embarking on that.  In the meantime, I am thinking of buying small amounts of different products to try them and figure out exactly what I want before purchasing a bulk quantity.
