I always try to shop local whenever possible. It’s much more satisfying buying something that your neighbors grew and not something that was mass produced halfway across the world. I used to love going to the “city” but now you have to literally drag me to the car. My only reason to go is knowing that a stop at a bookstore and a “fancy” coffee will be my reward. Big Yay!
I didn’t put in a garden this year (shame on me) but that’s no problem because just about anywhere you go in my neck of the woods you will see signs selling every fruit or vegetable a girl could want. Makes me wonder why I ever gardened in the first place (chuckle) when I can have it all without doing any of the dreaded weeding! Plus, I am going to admit that…ummmm….my garden usually looks so sad being among Amish gardens here. Yeah, really, really sad. I have no green thumb at all.
Do you shop locally? If so, do you find that prices are cheaper? You can’t beat four green peppers for a dollar when a chain store sells them for almost a dollar each! I am all about a good deal…how about you?
