Trying out organic produce

Last night I headed to the store for apples.  I really dislike the unplanned trips to the store.  It always seems like money spent and not much gained.  Of course I bought things that we didn't really need, but the purchases will make my trip this weekend much shorter.  My big find was organic apples for $.77/pound.  That's awesome as most on the non-organics are around $1/pound.  Add to that, we've been eating apples like crazy, so I picked up 6 pounds of those.  Then I also got a few other organic items that were within a few cents of their non-organic counterpart.  I picked up romaine hearts, baby carrots, celery, grape tomatoes and tortilla chips.  Then I also got some broccoli, cauliflower, and a couple peaches (all non-organic).  I've spent another $30+ that isn't in the budget and I will still need bananas and milk for next week.  At this point, I'm just trying to minimize the damage. :)


  1. 77c a pound is awesome for organic apples! I was excited the other week when organic braeburns were $1/b. We literally spend $10-15 a week on apples...

  2. That is an awesome price for apples! I get excited to get them for $1.25! And just think that even if you are going over your budget, you still are spending less on better food than you used to!
