Just two years ago I could buy a big bag of lemons in the summer for $3. At the very least (or should I say most) I could get 2 lemons for 99 cents in the winter. Now it costs $1.59 for two lemons! And it’s SUMMER!

While she was visiting, Shannon accompanied me to the grocery store and confirmed that at least in comparison to Toronto our prices are for the most part higher. This makes buying produce in particular very frustrating and eating healthy a huge financial commitment and that is not even organic produce I am talking about.
Eating healthy is very important to me and eating fresh is absolutely essential. Fresh food is what keeps us healthy, fights cancer, gives us REAL energy. I thought the prices would come down in the summer but they just seem to go higher even though gas prices are going down and the Canadian dollar is going up.
It seems all my money goes to my grocery bills. I have taken books out of the library on how to save money with food and I am sorry but I don’t want to make meals with cans of soup. So I will pay. They will get my money. And I will hopefully keep my health.
