Got honey?

On our trip to the Farmer's Market this week, we got:

4 jars of honey $5.00 each
5 bell peppers .40 each

I'm really struggling to balance my desire to buy local, organic produce/food and keep within my grocery budget. I really wish I could have participated in the CSA this year, but it simply was not the right time for us during the sign up period for the CSA's. Maybe next year.....

I've learned in my research that locally grown honey is very good for helping with seasonal allergies. We struggle with allergies in our family so I am willing to pay extra for local honey. Our honey intake has also drastically increased over the past few months. So, I decided to take advantage of a special deal one of the local honey farmers was having and purchase 4 bottles for $20.00. Unfortunetely, that's almost half my grocery budget for this week, but I'll try to make up for it somewhere else. I don't plan to buy more honey for a long time.
