I’m sure you’ve figured out by now I like to save money. Especially on food. I know several people who routinely pay $800 or more a month on their groceries. And honestly, it baffles me. It’s not because I have a garden, or because I like to can, it just seems a little crazy to me to spend that much on food. But what do I know. Maybe as I’ve gotten older my taste buds have simplified.
The last time I spent $800 a month on groceries was 2008. And let me tell you Bob, I can’t imagine doing that again. Heck, I can’t even imagine dropping $400 a month on groceries. But maybe I am just weird that way.
That being said, there are a few things I am willing to pay big bucks for.
And berries are one of them.
You just cannot beat the taste of fresh, local fruit. Nothing they sell in the stores compares. Those giant puffed up strawberries from California and Mexico? Forget about it. This morning drove to Spooner Farms and happily paid $24.95 a flat for strawberries and $26.95 a flat for raspberries.
Somethings are just worth paying a premium for.
So tell me, what food item are YOU willing to pay a pretty penny for?
