I just joined a Vegetable Co-Op
However many people are participating put in $20 every two weeks. They pool the money and buy as much of a variety of fresh fruits an veggies as they can, from the local farmer's market (local is healthier and it supports your community). We meet up at a church and divide the bounty. It is purchased by weight (it doesn't always divide equally) so whatever is left over (after all possible equal portions are distributed) goes into the "bonus pile" from which you get the first pick if you are there helping to divide the stuff. Afterwards, whatever is left is donated by the church to a family in need. Everybody wins!
This week, my first time, I got a huge box of fresh delicious produce for only twenty bucks. Throw in a few dried goods and peripheral ingredients - and that could be my total grocery expense, bi-weekly. And, well, it helps that my wife is a vegetarian, and a wizard in the kitchen. This is one of the coolest things ever.
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.
