As many of you know, I eat lots of fruit and veggies on a daily basis. With that being said, I thought it was worth highlighting this great tip from Jacinda who blogs at Homemaker Hand Guide (I also touch on this in a previous video I did here)…
My friend and I are trying to get into the Paleo diet, and I am loving it so far! I know that you are doing it as well, and on this diet we eat lots of veggies and fruits. But I wanted to share this tip in the grocery store (you may already know about this).
In the produce section, where they have the bagged produce like carrots, or potatoes, each of the bags are priced “per bag”, and are the same price. But have you ever weighed a few of the bags on the scale? Each of the bags don’t usually weigh exactly the same!
When they bag the produce, they can’t cut potatoes in half to match the weight, so you will see that lots of the bags are sometimes a half a pound more than others. We tested this out before in the store, and for a 3 pound bag, we found a 3 1/2 pound bag that was the same price. I just thought that was awesome to find out! Especially buying lots of produce.
