I did go to the store this week and buy some stuff. I went to a local market aimed at the Hispanic community. I had NO idea what an amazing meat counter they have! I got a boneless beef brisket for $3.99/lb. and fresh ground chicken for $2.39/lb. Shocking! The produce section was really good, too, though not organic as far as I could tell. We shop the local farmers' market every weekend (DH went and stocked us up while I was at the grocery store), but there are things we can't get because they're not locally grown, so I'm always looking for good sources. Money is very tight, so we don't buy organics at the store. I did buy some black beans because I'm totally out of canned beans of any sort and we planned to have burritos this week. I got some really thinly sliced beef steaks, so maybe we'll do beef and bean burritos instead of using chicken. Anyway, including a boatload of jarred baby food and some toilet paper, I spent less than $40 and what I bought, along with the Farmer's Market stuff will probably keep us going for about 2 weeks!
