I am interested to see your non-food list and help you analyze! I can't imagine what adds up to $100 -- it makes me think maybe I am secretly losing money that way, too. Also, I know you have a great pantry-stocking system for buying food. But coupons combined w/ sales are actually great for non-food items.

I have anxiety about so many situations in general, I have to say it's a relief to read this thread and realize -- here's something I have no anxiety about!! I can't imagine why anyone would be worried about shopping at a farmer's market
