80 lbs of Potatoes = $8

Our local grocery store has had a sale on potatoes the past 2 weeks, so I went ahead and picked up 80 lbs of potatoes. With roommates in the house wanting some of our food sometimes, I figure over the winter we'll get through these pretty easily with french fries, baked potatoes, cheesy potatoes, mashed potatoes, etc. The only comment the cashier made was "Having a party?"

We also spent a lot of time today using up the last of our green tomatoes. We made a huge batch of green tomato salsa, filled many small jars for Christmas presents to our friends from church and neighbors. Including the jar, each gift is going to cost us ~$0.85 ($0.75 for the jar, $0.10 for the items we did not have from the garden). I'm planning on getting a sheet of the labels and printing on them, asking for the jars back when they're done.

I don't know about asking for the jar back. It's a gift right?
