This is my grocery list for this week:
garlic soymilk almonds
fruit toilet paper canned beans
veg meat soda
bread cheese bath salts
Not a crazy list, right? Nothing out of the ordinary. Except that 90% of the fruit and veggies are organic and the meat is either local or organic or both. I buy both cheese and yogurt locally too (although I am lucky enough to be able to say Cabot is local to me). I've found a local baker who does wonderful whole wheat loaves for $3.80. The cheapest local bread around short of making my own.
I probably won't buy everything on this list. Heck, I've already spent $30 on the meat, some berries that were on sale (not organic), the bread, and a bottle of wine. Which - because my birthday is in a couple days - was necessary even if not on the list. If I were out of cleaning supplies, the products would probably be Seventh Generation, unless something else less toxic were available for cheaper. If eggs were on the list, they'd be local and grass fed. We have local, organic soymilk but it's a splurge to buy it at nearly $5 a gallon, so it's regular ol' Silk for me.

But I tell ya, my bank account isn't a bit fan of my morals.
