Right now Newflower Market has a few unadvertized specials worth checking out. Organic Valley heavy cream (my choice) is $2.99 a pint. Shady Maple Farms organic maple syrup, grade B or grade A dark amber, is only $17.99 a quart. This is a great deal because maple syrup prices are climbing. Get it while you can still afford it. Organic bulk almonds and walnuts are $6.99 a #. Don’t forget to keep a couple of clean plastic produce type bags in your reusable shopping bag (leave one stashed in the car!). Then you’re always ready for bulk bargains and small loose produce (think Texas green beans, on sale at NM for 99 ¢ per #). If family chaos interferes with your plastic bag washing efforts just throw them in the laundry. Really! Air dry them and you’ve saved some plastic.
