Well, this is what $10.52 will buy you, or at least one combination of things that can be bought with $10.52. Working on the premise that $20.00 a week works out to roughly $2.85 daily, this represents the food purchases that have to last me until the end of the day on Saturday.

I certainly hope that I won’t use all the margarine by that date, even though it exists as my only source of cooking oil. I also intend to ration myself to one egg a day, so in effect I’m hoping to make that dozen eggs last through two weeks. The most obvious things missing in this set of purchases is food containing calcium and a decided lack of fiber. However, that is more a reflection on the fact that I shopped for a four day period rather than a full week.

Oh, I still have $.88 left to spend this week, or add to next week.

  1. Wow! Well, Donald, I’m glad you bought garlic. Most things can become palatable with sufficient garlic. Wish me luck tomorrow – I’m going to sing for Ruth Widdicombe so she can place me in the right voice range in the women’s choir!
