Do you have an upper limit?

Posted by   + Show Post

Is there a dollar figure you're not willing to go over for various categories of food?  I used to have a lot, but they mostly got blown out of the water a few years ago when we started eating whole, real, clean food.  I still have some lingering ideas of what's too much, like these satsuma oranges, but they are so tempting!

Gotcha! I hope you didn't think I was insulting you or anything. I just figured that with everything else you do on your own, you are baking bread.

I have adrenal fatigue. I'm surprised that I get out of bed in the morning!



Quoting MyGiftsFromGod:

Hey, I'm surprised you don't make your own bread. ;-)






Quoting Kelly913:

Could you share some examples?  I know in my "former" life I wouldn't spend more than a dollar for a loaf of bread.  Now I spend $4.29 for a smaller one so I can get what's good for us.  Chicken quarters could be had for under a dollar a pound and now I find myself willing to pay over $4/pound for pasture raised, non GMO fed chicken (whole bird).  Most produce I wouldn't pay over a dollar a pound and now $3 seems to be my upper range.  I don't shop much in the grocery store,s o not as aware of rising costs there, curious to read what you've seen.

I've had to adjust mine since prices have gone up & deals aren't as good!

Not insulted at all.  There was a time I was baking our bread, making crackers, crepes, English muffins-lots of things.  I made our own sour cream, buttermilk, yogurt, soft cheese.  I simply couldn't keep up.  Feeding the sourdough starter was a lot to do too.  :-)  I'd love to get back to it, but have to be realistic.
