Milk and fruit are killers at our house.
It's right about $4 a gallon, and we go through a gallon a day. I don't see any way around it, so I don't think about it. There is a grocery store that gives a free gallon for every 9 that you buy, so I usually get our milk there.
However, every time the girls eat an orange, I find myself thinking. "That's 50 cents!!"
They ate $6 in oranges alone in 3 days!!!!
Jenns-great idea about the price book. I have a freakish memory thing for numbers, and I can usually remember what was how much and where, but that would be much easier.
The grocery store that gives the free milk has the cheapest fruit, but it's usually not the best quality, so I don't often buy there.
There are a lot of local orchards, and we have apples coming out of our ears during harvest time, but it's harder the rest of the year.
I also tried bringing my tomato plant inside and having it year round, but it absolutely refused.
We did grow green peppers last year, but they were pretty small, and M (who likes to eat them as though they were apples) said, "Oh look, baby peppers!"
