And every month I try and do a decent grocery shop so I don't have to go to the supermarket so often, as every time I go to the supermarket I magically spend $30 even if I'm going in to buy one thing.
So the theory clearly is, go once, buy lots, spend less over the course of the month.
The other theory is that I won't waste so much food by only going once (with a few additional trips for necessities like chocolate/soda water/plastic cheese).
Yep, the theory is that I will use all that food I bought up. Not waste any of it.
It's a good theory ...
But as I discovered this morning while clearing out my vege bin, I have an aversion to green food. I'm 'greenist'. And no matter how much I dream of eating all my veges and saving money some part of me just can't seem to eat green food. Goodbye well intentioned silverbeet, see ya later health giving salad leaves, au revoir over ripe avos.
So what have I learnt from this revelation? I can save a good $15 a month at least by not buying green foods ... and I can instead spend it on my favourite 'c' foods. As I'm 'c-ist' too. Cheese ... chocolate ... chardonnay ... cheezels. CHOICE!
