Frugal Living: Great Buy on Strawberries
May 13, 2022 8:59pm CST
Today I bought a 4 lb/1.8 kg clamshell of beautiful, red, sweet strawberries for $7.99. There were 56 strawberries in that clamshell. That works out to about 15 cents per berry. I had a bowl of six of them tonight for my dessert. Tomorrow morning I will be cleaning and preparing strawberries for my freezer. I'll look forward to using them in my smoothies. Photo is my own.

No, that was at the commissary. I have the same problem with the berries, but I've been in the mood for them and since I'm not eating bread I started eating berries. I froze about 2 lb of them the other 2 lbs are gone! LOL I did share some with rgd, as we had some for dessert and then I sent him home with about a half pound
I buy the wooden case of 1 Kg of strawberries and the price is $ 4.99 (I am glad that Swiss Francs and $ are 1 to 1 now - no more calculations). To use for cooking I buy frozen strawberries, they are very good and they cost the half than the fresh ones.

The farmers market around here, is more a street fair that is organic small farms that cost a whole lot of money. I still like going and supporting them when I can, but it's too expensive right now. And I have a hard time getting my rear in gear, most days! LOL
Very nice treat! Strawberries are delicious and rich in vitamin C. Tomorrow I'm going to eat strawberries as well, I don't know how much they cost because I didn't buy them myself. They shouldn't be too expensive as most are local. We're lucky, I guess.
