Why the interest in eating bulk organic? I keep reading this "frugal" stories about homemakers who clip coupons, shop the "sales" and spend $100 on their grocery bill. I wonder --what are they eating? Mac and cheese, from a box? What are the long-term health effects? This month I want to see how little I can spend, but buy eating simple, vegetable and grain based meals. In the article I mention above there is a quote from a women named Jill Richardson who does just this, and she paraphrases her style as "cheap, fast, and lazy". Can I replicate her style? Time will tell.

Eat Organic Without Breaking the Bank
Reading my local paper last week I came across a story called "Organic for All" on how to eat organic food without breaking the bank. Full of useful information, included was a blurb about a class offered at the Willy Street Co-op; how to use their bulk aisle, eat well, and not spend a fortune. "No Secret to Savings" is offered at both the west and east side locations. Free to owners or $5 to non-owners, participants are lead down the bulk-food aisle where they receive introductions to new foods and tips on simply cooking strategies. I found one class, coming up on Monday, October 24th. I just may have to attend.
