    MrsRobinson got a reaction from moggle in Spending way too much $$ on groceries!   
    We got together with several families and ordered a cow together from a local organic farm. In a week or so I'm getting 50 pounds of grass fed beef in a variety of cuts that I will be spending $160 for. There are two of us, so 50 pounds of beef will last a good while combined with other things. I've been eating almost Whole30 for about nine months now (the only thing on my 'active elimination' list is dairy--everything else is already gone). I'm hoping this plus the temporary suspension of my cheese budget will balance things out a bit. It does seem like I drop a lot of money at the store these days (usually $100-125 a week for two) but when I consider all the stuff I'm not buying that I used to eat, I think I'm still ahead of the game.

    Well, back from the store, just shopped for my first Whole30 week and spent $114.00. Not bad. That includes TP, a roll of paper towels, and laundry detergent. So the food was just a skootch over $100, mostly vegetables, meat, eggs, and a couple of odd bits for my husband who is not participating. I think I saved money not buying my usual $5 a half organic milk and two horking fistfuls of overpriced cheese. And half and half by the hogshead.

    'm going to look into buying coconut oil online. Currently my coconut oil habit is $10 per week for 10 oz of oil.
     
     
    Check out Tropical Traditions, their prices are very good and they have sales all the time. My last purchase was a BOGOF for 32 ounce jars and it wasn't more than $20 for 64 ounces of CO.
