Monday Update

Shopping went well on Friday. My Dear Wife wanted to come along, so we drove, since her level of biking sanity is quite higher than mine. We spent about $120 at WinCo, about $15 at Safeway, and about $50 at The Co-Op, which is the most we’d ever spent there. The extra funds in our grocery account gave us a little more leeway to shop there, but we still found some bargains: naturally raised ground beef for $2 per pound; organic rolled oats from an Oregon company for $0.95 per pound, the same as the Safeway quick oats; and a pound 12-oz. bag of organic/fair trade/ “love buzz” coffee on sale for $5.49. On second thought, that’s $7.45 per pound…not so great after all. And I’m not going to fool myself into thinking that coffee is “local” to here in any way…it seems I’ll have to wrestle with that dilemma soon. But first, I’ll need another cuppa joe.
