First there is coffee. Coffee from Peets at about $16 a pound. I think a pound lasts about a week and a half.
Here's a list of the cost of a few basic foods in the local grocery. I found the list online and it said it is for average cost in our area.
How do those costs compare to your area? I can't recall everything from my last shop but I know bell peppers were 2/$3 and celery was $1.49 a bunch. This was at a regular supermarket chain not one of the "boutique" grocery stores. I know I can do better on produce if I make an extra trip to the produce market.
I'd love to hear how this compares to your grocery costs. Meanwhile I'm going to savor my cup of coffee and head over to Elizabeth's blog to see what people are discussing this Tuesday. Bring your drink and join me.
