We’re back in the fall routine now.  Unfortunately the number is getting a little higher than I might like so I’ll have to pay more attention going forward.

A few observations about this month.  The local number is still fairly high, but half of this is a single nice meats purchase.  I haven’t been to the farmer’s market since before school started because its schedule doesn’t fit well with the school schedule.  I’ve been at the farm stand pretty regularly though – lots of green beans and corn on the cob specifically.  Second, I haven’t been to Target in what seems like forever, though that’s probably ok.  Third, I discovered that BJs is now carrying our preferred pizza dough, which will reduce my Star Market number going forward.  Finally, the Stop & Shop number looks a lot higher, but that included two birthday cakes.

  • September TOTAL: $1254.22
    • Stop & Shop: $273.06
    • Wegman’s: $353.96
    • BJs: $332.20
    • Other: $295.00
      • Local: $230.66
      • Star Market: $55.18
      • Trader Joe’s: $9.16
      • Target: $0
      • Other: $0

I didn’t do too much shopping this week.  I was at BJs first.

Then I went to the farm stand.  It’s a little hard to see in the picture, but from the top left are broccoli, corn on the cob, green beans, and shallots.
