Harder to be frugal?

I just read that the price of produce is expected to go up - WAY UP - in the next few days, and stay that way for at least a few weeks. Apparently our cold spell is causing a farming crisis - the produce is not ripening as quickly as usual!

You can read more about this here.

So - what are all of use frugal shoppers without access to a shuk about to close (where you can get low price produce without fail, trust me!) - going to do?

How will you feed the family while sticking to your budget?

I'm going to have to mull this one over a bit.

Ideas welcome!


  1. Stock up today before prices rise?

    1. no time! but if you have the means, and the fridge space, go for it!

  2. Soups with canned veggies and grains.

    1. Thanks Henya! Just please watch out for BPA-lined cans. I'm afraid of them all, so I just don't buy cans...
