Take that Economy

A sample from my recent shopping trip to the local middle eastern market in my area.

1 head romaine....33 cents

10 kiwi fruit....2 dollars

4 broccoli crowns...52 cents

7 braeburn apples ...1.81

1 bunch green onions...25 cents

1 bunch of seedless flame grapes...1 dollar, 57 cents

1 bunch of cilantro ...10 cents

1 bunch of bananas...1 dollar, 52 cents

1 white onion....33 cents

7 hothouse tomatoes on the vine...2 dollars, 17 cents

Its finally cool to be cheap! Hoorah!

Tip of the day: If its not on sale, don't buy it. Just change your recipe or do what is cheap. As much as you can at least. So that way you can still get your Pinkberry on. Thats the word.

Wow. Is this a CA thing or do those cheap stores exist everywhere? I think my last bunch of green onions was like $1.49.

You have to check out Yogurtland in Sherman Oaks....so much better than Pinkberry. Be aware that it is addicting!!

That really disgusts me. I mean I am happy for you, but I want those prices. That is crazy.
