This was a good week for deals for me. I picked up 20+ pounds of sweet potatoes at the farmer’s market this morning, and spent a total of $20 on them. After the fiasco last year where I had to pay full price for organic sweet potatoes during Thanksgiving week, I decided I was NOT going to let that happen again!
These beauties cost me $1/lb, and they are “organic” and locally grown. I put organic in quotation marks, because these aren’t certified USDA organic. Many small-time farmers can’t afford to jump through the hoops and pay all the certification fees to be labeled such. But by speaking with your local farmers and asking questions, you can find out that a lot of them use organic practices in growing fruits and vegetables.
In the background in that photo you can make out some jars of goodies. We visited grandma this past week, and she sent us home with yummy preserves from her garden. There’s fig, grape, peach, pear, crab apple and strawberry. And there’s a jar of dill pickles I bought at the farmer’s market this morning as well. That was a cringe-worth $5, but oh they were such a yummy treat for everyone this afternoon!
And finally, I stopped at a local consignment sale on half-off day and bought my daughter’s entire winter wardrobe. I also got two Melissa and Doug Puzzles (Christmas Presents!), a Diego Doll and a pair of princess slippers all for a total of $43. If you need clothes for your children, half-price day at consignment sales are definitely the way to go!
