Anyway, this morning I took a look at the ever-growing list of things I need to get tomorrow and inwardly cringed. It's going to be expensive. Hell, it's expensive every week. I'm mean, should a single gal really be spending $80 a week on groceries? Then I start mentally dividing the list: okay, I can get the meat and bread at this store because they have a good selection of local stuff, and then I'll get the rest at Shaw's because it'll be cheaper.
But you know what? It *is* cheaper. Cheaper nutritionally and environmentally. I need to change my way of thinking. There is no need to feel guilty about wanting to eat Good Things. Obviously I am making enough to afford it so I'm not neglecting other bills at the expense of food. Ok, so last week I chose groceries over a new vacuum cleaner. But I know every one of you would do the same. I mean, really, organic dry roasted almonds vs. clean floors? The choice is obvious!
