Weekly Grocery Total

$79 at the neighborhood specialty store.

Here's what I bought:

Organic Grape Juice
Puff's Plus tissues
Mild Green Chiles (canned, conventional)
Back To Nature Wheat Crackers (conventional)
1 Lemon (conventional)
1 cucumber (conventional)
1 green bell pepper (conventional)
1 red bell pepper (conventional)
1 Spaghetti Squash (conventional)
Organic Broccoli
Organic Bananas
Organic Celery
Organic Yellow Onions
Organic Russet Potatoes
Carrot Chips (conventional)
Organic Blueberries
Organic Cherry Tomatoes
Tomatoes of the Vine (conventional)
Organic Turkey Bologna
Organic Frozen Strawberries
Local Organic Eggs from Morning Sun Farm
Unsweetened Almond Milk
Chocolate Almond Milk
Organic Chocolate Soy Milk
Organic Fuji Apples

Out of 24 items that could potentially be organic, 13 are, or about 54%. I'm hoping if I keep track, I can find ways to increase that.

We'll have to do a run to the health food store for frozen Earth's Best Waffles, bananas, and soy yogurt mid-week, for a total of about $19, plus I'll need to get the roast for Saturday, which will be about $12.

I anticipate a total of $110 for the week. I've been lax with the cash system, and I hope to get back to it, especially since we will be outlaying cash for my Bachelor of Nursing completion this year.
