'Spensive Groceries and $20 Challenge

January 14th, 2007 at 05:14 pm

Brandus went to the AC store (as opposed to the Native Store) today, and for my birthday, got me several of the things Ive been really craving lately.

The grapes alone cost $8! For one small bunch of grapes! But! He also got me chocolate milk, REAL chocolate milk, which I have NO IDEA how he managed to find, some fresh carrots, a 12 pack of dr pepper and a few other odds and ends..for the low price of $100 or so. Eek!

But, the chocolate milk ALONE made me extremely giddy, so its not a bad thing today. And we still have $100 left in our grocery budget.

Plus! The past couple of days, 2 people have used ING referrals from me, so Im adding the $10 each to my challange money. Im happy!

    OMG!! Is everything in Alaska that expensive?????

    Pretty much! Its cheaper (slightly) in Anchorage and the big cities, because they only have to ship the produce once. Here, they can only fit so much on the little 207 planes, so anything perishable is WAY expensive.

    Hey, easy on the Dr. Pepper. It'll give you killer heartburn while your pregnant if you drink too much.

    No worries! I let myself have one a day, and ONLY if Im craving it. Smile
