Your biggest mistake when shopping for fruits and vegetables
So when I walk into my local grocery store, I notice they have apples in easy-to-grab bags.
Might I add that I LOVE shopping for fruits and vegetables.
Walking through this section makes me SO happy, I don’t know why, it just excites me… anywho.
Throw 4 bags in my cart.. (juice kick)
Continue through the produce and notice they have broccoli, carrots, oranges, green beans… practically everything I would put in a bag already in a bag.
Note: I spent 75$ on fruits and vegetables so I was brainstorming how I could save and boom, it hit me.
Those bags are pretty sturdy.. super nice bags 😉
A little cardboard on the bottom so it doesn’t plop over.
I wonder how much this bag weighs..
I thought about it the WHOLE way home.
So I went home and weighed her.. (her as in the bag, habit..)
This bag weighed 7 ounces!
Let’s do some quick math…
1.99 a pound for apples…
Roughly 12 cents an ounce.
If I multiply 12 cents by the 7 ounces of bag…
So instead of getting 87 cents worth of apples, I got.. a bag.
This is a trick MANY grocery stores use because it’s super convenient to just grab a bag and put it in your cart.
You will save SO much money if you bag them yourselves.
Remember what I said about convenience? (Hmmm, are you catching on?)
