Less Might Just Be Less
to: gansie, 80P
So I was thrilled that our CC bill this month was 1/2 to a 1/3 less than previous months. Yah us!! Looking through the items they were mostly a lot of Harris Teeters, an El Rodeo, Parker & Otis, and you get the point. Them I’m at my desk today eating leftover pasta salad topped with chopped pork from Sunday when I hear this lady on WUNC talking about eating for $1 a day.
Now although that sounds tremendously impressive she also said her “normal” cost of eating is $80/month shopping at Whole Foods. I really need to read into her blog to see how she did that. I really have no interest in eating $1 worth of food per day. I also kind of want to see what she looks like.

So I checked out her site, Less Is Enough. I enjoyed her usage of Jiffy products, but I probably didn’t need to see photographic evidence of her receipts. Her restraint is pretty remarkable. She eats almost nothing. She keeps very little food at her house and shops basically daily to have just enough to eat for that day. It’s a vastly different relationship with food. I know I’d be miserable. I love my pantry. I love buying food. I love making food with eighteen different ingredients. So don’t worry kids, it’s nothing you’ll be seeing on ES. (I do love that fried egg in twice-baked potato, though.)
