On Manager's Special 3.16.09


Slightly dinged apples $1.94.



Ripe bananas only $0.84.



A bunch of onions $1.88.

Grand total for only $4.66. Not too bad.

Apples make perfect snacks, I eat bananas all the time and onions are always good to have on hand.

We got a big bunch of bananas for 30cents a pound. One was organic-farm 001.

Last time I looked at a cheapo rack, I found that a huge load of heavy stuff was piled on it, and whoever did the piling put all the soft things, like bananas, grapes and tomatoes, on the bottom, and all were completely squozen. I guess nobody told this person what goes on top.

I am a frequent shopper of the Manager's Specials in the produce section of my local supermarket.

I always get bananas (for smoothies, hot cereal) from that rack - 3 pounds for $1 (and much of the time, they're the organic ones that in my relatively rural area many people don't buy).

There'll be 10 oz of baby spinach for 99 cents there. A bag of organic broccoli and cauliflower, a bag of navels for 99 cents. Portobellos for, you guessed it, 99 cents.

I'm like a kid in a candy store.

A small aside: Am I the only one that finds it hard to find the 'delicious' line of apples incredibly appetizing? Both the red and the golden. Like my friend, who was been an earth-friendly, health-conscious vegetarian long before I thought of a nutritarian diet, says, "It's like they put the word 'delicious' in the name to convince people that they are indeed 'delicious'!"
