    The Whole Foods in my neighborhood FINALLY opens this week, a year behind schedule. I'm going to the "pre-sale" soft opening tomorrow, which I had to reserve tickets for, because I am a loser like that.

    I AM SO EXCITED!!!

    I'm very sorry but I can't think of Whole Foods without thinking of this

    they'll get you every time. The one in my old neighborhood had a bell they would ring when you donated.

    we call Whole Foods - Whole Paycheck

    I just want to say that I shop Whole Foods the same way I shop every other store...there are blatant rip-offs, and there are deals to be had. WFM has an original store brand called 365 (which they were trying to spin off to a separate store) that comprises a wide range of products and is generally good quality organics at decent prices. Remember that natural and organic food is WFM's whole focus, whereas other supermarkets consider organics as 'specialty items' and charge more. More recently they introduced the Whole Foods label as a second house brand; also good prices and quality.

    Their produce is generally much better quality than other shops, because again, this is their stock-in-trade. Compare the price of their organic stuff to your local supermarket and I think you'll find they are typically very competitive.

    There are plenty of examples of over-priced stuff at WFM. If you absolutely have to have that Finnish-style dark rye that was baked at some artisanal shop in Sedona by Taoist monks from grain grown by virgin Wiccans, you'll probably pay $20 a loaf. Or those nut bars made by the two moms who think they can justify charging $5 a bar because they are so effing special. You get what I mean...

    All I'm saying is that if you 'shop smart' there are just as many good deals to be had at WFM as any other store.

    And BTW, the store that rings the bell is Trader Joe's, not WFM...

    I understand.

    Can I borrow $20.00 ?

    this.

    WFM also has awesome sales and coupons. When I lived in New York and was a broke grad student I used to "extreme coupon" whole foods with store and manufacturer coupons. I could knock a $100 total down to $40 or $50 without too much effort, and have a lot of food. They're especially big on BOGO deals.

    You NEED that rye bread, don't you? LOL!!

  • That's too bad.

    Struggle #1 should've been, "how do I stake my claim on my MFP spouse without looking like a *kitten*?"

    It's like anything else... Just lick it, then it's yours. Solid as any legally binding contract.

    Me too. Still haven't figured out how to unclaim her on the days she pisses me off though. I usually just go to the garage & lick car parts, wrenches & sockets when that happens.
    Jut an FYI, not wise to borrow anything from my garage unless you like turtle slobber.

    I feel really frustrated because I find it very hard not to speak up when People are unkind or judgemental towards others! I feel like we should all be lifting each other up not putting one another down!!!

    I just read a study that said about 40% of people would save their dog instead of a foreign tourist if an out of control bus was aiming for them. How isn’t the percentage to save the dog nearly 100% across the board for every stranger? No way I’d save a stranger.

    I would save my fur child the very same, as someone else, that would be saving their own human child. I think that's what I would do anyway.
    My child is not human. My child or children are with 4 legs and fur. At the rate I'm going in the last 3 years, don't worry, I've met my "human quota" so far.
