When I first got to Bloomington, I HAD to attend international student orientation or else they wouldn’t let me register for classes.
What I gained from it was very little but one thing from the handbook did stick:
“Most Americans buy food for a week or more at a time in supermarkets.”
I first scoffed at this because I have always bought groceries on a daily basis. This is largely because I constantly change my mind on what I want to eat. I also really enjoy the process and want the freshest ingredients possible.
The fact that Saturdays are when the farmers’ market opens has made me a once a week shopper.
This requires a tight control over what is in my fridge, freezer, and pantry so that I don’t waste or run out of food before my next run.
This is what I got from the farmers’ market last week!
How would you maximize Saturday shopping day?
