30 Days of Nothing: Day 1,304

I'm a little messed up on my days, so let's just confess that dh bought milk and bananas and pears on Sunday. He did buy the 10 cent/lb bananas that are a hair past their prime, so we got 3.7 lbs of bananas for 37 cents! Milk is a necessity (in fact, I was supposed to stop for some today and forgot!) and fruit is too. Pears were on sale.

Mr. GT also bought cilantro one day to aid in the crafting of homemade salsa from the garden tomatoes.

Other than that, we've been fairly purchase-free.

My box of wine is getting pretty low....... If Owlhaven can count a gallon of ice cream a week as a necessity....

Story Problem of the Day:
If a dad normally buys bananas at 49 cents a pound, how much will he save if he buys 3.7 lbs at 10 cents a lb during the 30 Days of Nothing?
