    Does that style of header work? Also, any Hubski peeps a member of a CSA? We are thinking about trying to work that into our budget. Might be doable, since the car got paid off with the tax return.

We do this one in Seattle: https://www.growingwashington.org/food-box-options it comes out to about $3 an item or about 2x as much as the grocery store. We do it because it encourages us to cook with vegetables that we dont normally use and because it encourages us to eat more vegetables. We consider it a luxury item

That's around what we are looking at too. The price comparison is more favorable if we assume that otherwise I'd be buying the produce from the community owned grocery, but either option is a big step up from going to Aldi or Kroger or likewise.

I got so used to barely making ends meet, it's taking me a while to figure out where my priorities lie on where I want to ease up on being frugal. Food is a compelling choice because a) I can spend locally, b) I enjoy it, and c) it isn't super consumerist.
