ELC Day 6: I go to Key Food.

I finally broke down and bought some decidedly un-local food. I don’t know whether to count this towards my totals or not because, well, you’ll see what I bought in a minute:

– microwave popcorn ($2.99)
– microwave kettle corn ($2.89)
– all-natural Skippy ($2.69)1
– Goldfish crackers ($1.99)
Amish Country Farms organic milk ($4.59 for a half-gallon)

Grand total: $15.15

So, of this shopping excursion, how much should go towards my ELC total? Just the local stuff? Just the stuff that isn’t snack food? All of it?

  1. You could tell me this peanut butter is shipped in from Mars and I would still buy it. I have ruined more than my share of shirts by stirring that fucking oil slick back into the jar of all-natural peanut butter. This stuff doesn’t need to be stirred or refrigerated and it doesn’t have a bunch of crap in it. I love it. []

  1. I think only the local stuff should count toward your total… How would you get microwave popcorn or kettle corn (the best!) locally, anyway?

    Unless you happen to live down the street from a local fair where you can get kettle corn (hmmm, the county fair here is this weekend, I think…)

    And I agree totally on the peanut butter thing!

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks having to stir your peanut butter is just plain wrong.

    Just count the local stuff against the budget. This sounds like a break you and your family have totally earned, Kristen.
