  • Honestly, I'd say fresh produce, I buy TONS of it, its a huge percentage of my bill. There are always splurges here and there for special occasions, but the produce is every week no matter what. I did just buy a giant bag of pistachios for DH and DD, they were on sale for $7.50, couldn't pass it up. Once in a blue moon I'll buy flowers too.

  • For me, it would be the bite size cheesecakes. For my husband, it would be sushi.

  • Honestly, everything. My husband and I decided long ago that we'd rather eat very well and that's the one thing we do not cut corners on. We shop at a local farmers market for everything including tea, coffee, bread, rice, oatmeal, seasonings, etc.. We don't buy any food from local grocery stores, we prefer fresh.

  • Lots. my Dh likes the opposite than me, so we equally get out fixes. I splurge on liquids. I crave Coca-cola and dh likes gatorade. and juice boxes for the little one.
