SERIOUSLY????

I am looking at the prices you post for food and am just amazed.

I can't get a dozen of regular eggs for $2.00 here.

I need to live somewhere else. Anywhere else.

My area is pretty cheap for food, but I also get awesome deals fairly often. It's not uncommon to find yogurt on sale for 10 cents (actually picked up a ton of yogurt for a penny a piece one time!), kale for 10 cents, milk for $1, stuffed portabellos for 25 cents, etc - it's one of the perks to shopping late at night Aldi is also an amazing place, especially for produce (so long as it's "common" produce). 5 pounds of oranges for $1.48, avocados for 39 cents, grapes for 49 cents a pound fairly often, 3 pounds of apples for 99 cents - apparently Aldi has their own farms, so they get produce direct instead of having to get it from a 3rd party. They also have milk for $1.99 a gallon right now which is AMAZING. Eggs, regular price, are around $1.29 at Aldi.

I want to be you right now. Oh, the food I would eat.

That's so awesome. Milk is $3+ a gallon, avocados $1 a piece (or more!), and I've seen specialty lettuces for $5+.

Aldi sounds awesome. There aren't any in the DC area, I think. I can see where having your own farms would drastically lower the prices.

At Dillons, avocados range from $1 to $2.49 a piece and I think that's ridiculous. Especially since I got one the other day because it was late and Aldi was closed, and the ****er was rotten inside.

Well, the downside is because food and housing is cheap (my last apartment was $300/month), pay is lower, too :P

I've noticed that pay being lower isn't directly proportional. A lot of times when people move from Long Island their pay decreases... But with such a drastic change in living expenses their monthly left over increases and they are able to save more.

And I am very jealous of your food prices! LOL. Food is so much more expensive here!

Eggland's Best are pretty good. Cage free. Have organic as well.

Call a few vet clinics. I can name at least 1 person at every vet clinic I'm familiar with that raises chickens and sells eggs. Down here they sell anywhere from $2-3 per dozen
