Foodstuff

Posted on Friday, May 17th, 2013

Dave!The cost of a trip to the supermarket has reached such epic heights that I've developed a genuine fear of grocery shopping. The panic sets in the minute I enter the parking lot, and all I can think of is how I am not escaping for less than $50 no matter how little I have on my list. This is especially scary when you consider that I'm vegetarian, don't eat a lot, actively look for sale items, and buy the cheapest option whenever I can.

I have no clue how large families can afford to feed themselves now-a-days.

Guess I'm going to have to start buying in bulk, look into buying a FoodSaver, and start freezing everything.

Or start a garden.

Or beg for food in the streets.

For the past seven months I've been saving for a new camera and I finally ordered it today. It arrives tomorrow. But after my latest trip to the grocery store, I'm starting to wonder if I should have kept the money in savings so I can eat.

Nah.

Priorities and all that.

  1. My latest project is working on an incubator so I can make Tempeh at home cheap & easy.

  2. Give a man a banana and he eats for a day. But give him a camera and he can photograph bananas all day long!

  3. Kyra Wilson says:

    It’s a nightmare for us, especially with two teenagers. We do buy in bulk though, so that does help somewhat. I make a lot of things from scratch, but actually that can end up costing more now that the retailers have caught on. And since we buy lots of fresh produce, our food bill is astronomical!

  4. You’d be surprised how long I can survive on a bag of Banquet “chicken” nuggets. Then again, I’ll just die malnourished eventually.
