“I need to pick up a few things at the grocery store. It won’t take long,” I state closing the car door. Twenty minutes later, I return with five bags in my hand. Not bad for a quick trip. Not bad … until I heard the grocery teller say, “$82.47 please.” Eight two dollars and forty-seven cents. I shook my head as I headed out the door.
My goal was to get some healthy foods – fruits, fish, and other meat. Blueberries were three dollars; strawberries were two dollars and seventy-nine cents. I believe that my purchases are essential, providing good nutrition for my family. I just wish my purchases left more change in my wallet.
