GCC Shopping Round Up

My past few weeks caught up with me today. Two weeks ago I just didn't shop. Last week I came in way under budget. And even though we had enough to eat both of those weeks, it depleted my stores so this week I caught back up. I hope my weekly totals for August will still balance out to be $60 per week.

On what date did you post the homemade fruit and veggie wash? I did a search but I didn't find it.

I couldn't get it to come up either so here it is....

Homemade Fruit and Vegetable Wash

1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
1 cup tap water

Put one tablespoon of lemon juice into your spray bottle. The lemon juice is both a natural disinfectant and will leave your fruits and vegetables smelling nicely. Pour the vinegar into your spray bottle along with one cup of water. The acid in the vinegar will neutralize most pesticides. Shake the mixture vigorously. Spray your wash on all of your fruits and vegetables. Then, rinse it off. They are now ready to eat, store or use in cooking.
