It seems the cost of grapes and canned pineapple went up over night. I walked out of one store, which I seldom do, and made a special trip to store number two. Sure enough, the prices were a LOT cheaper!
Not knowing what to expect, I bought a case of canned pineapple.
Prepackaged foods have a great deal of other things in them, so be careful. Even this innocent looking ham and cheese sandwich has a gob of preservatives and extra chemicals. Their is far more than brown bread, ham, cheese, and lettuce. Click the image to get a closer look.
Some time in the past, I heard a couple of rules I try to follow.
- Don’t buy anything with a list of ingredients over five(?) items.
- Don’t buy anything with ingredients you can’t pronounce.
This sandwich fails on both accounts.
So many prepackaged foods follow this same pattern, so I stay away from the central food aisles. I shop the outside shelves. I still don’t buy a”perfect” shopping list, but I try. It isn’t easy.
