I might be guilty of having a love for buying in bulk. There is just something about buying 100 tomatoes that gets me giddy!
So the other day I went to the farmers market. It is like a whole other world there. You can buy from market stands.
Out of the back of trucks
you can buy in quantities of one thing or 1 box. So I got excited and went shopping. A little too much. Thankfully, I only had one kid, I had to rearrange the seating.
I bought 2 boxes of corn, 5 boxes of tomatoes, 1 box of peppers and 5 watermelons for about $60. Let me say! WHAT WAS I THINKING! Way too much to put away. I ended up putting up the corn and 1 box of tomatoes. The rest was handed out and I did buy 2 boxes of it for my MIL and mom and split the peppers. BUT still, I got 4 kids and one on a ninni! How did I think that I could put food up.
Oh but I loved the smell of those peppers and tomatoes. YUM! But at the end of the week, it made me realize that I needed to keep things simpler. SO no clothe diapers, no homemade wipes, no bulk preparation. I am going as easy as possible and maintaining health. So SAM’s Club here I come.
PS I think I am going back, I love the freshness. Maybe neck week.
