Grocery Recap

My grocery shopping was so spread out over the week and amongst so many stores, that I just haven't taken the time to recap. Of course, my normal preferred budget of $40 is blown because of Thanksgiving. Just can't fit all the extras in that $40 bucks.

Something different this week for me, was I bought meat! Quite a bit of meat. I've had some comments and questions about the lack of meat in my menus and grocery recaps. So, I thought I'd address it a short and simply as possible. My family tries to live a mostly vegetarian lifestyle. I'm not opposed to meat, actually I love hamburgers! But,I really hate the meat industry and the inhumane way most farm animals are treated in the huge corporate farms and slaughterhouses. Since I'm not the type to picket the meat processing plants or protest at a cattlemen's convention (eh um.. PETA). I choose to do my protesting a little quieter, but with the most impact: I DON'T BUY THEIR PRODUCTS. I was given a gift card to Whole Foods so I used it to buy some chicken and beef from a store that has certain standards of it's meat suppliers. They have a 5 step labeling system that tells you how the animal was grown. 1 being the animal was not crated, caged or crowded. 5+ being the most ideal that the animal lived on the same farm it's whole life and no alterations were done. Of course, this meat is a lot more expensive than the meat you find on sale at any supermarket. That's why I don't buy it very often. It simply won't fit into my tight budget right now. Okay-- I'll get off my soapbox and proceed with the grocery wrap up.

You did a great job. I am in the midst of doing my grocery list for Publix, and thanks to you I realized that I had a 1.50 coupon off 2 Ziplock containers instead of the $1 coupon I had originally found.
