The purpose of Grocery Gal is to share my experiences buying great, affordable food while supporting local businesses. It gives me an opportunity to search for a new place to amaze my culinary senses. So many times I’ve thought this is it! i don’t need to shop anywhere else! and then something new catches my eye and, well, there’s my next blog post. I want people to see that they can still eat well and watch their pocketbook, because Grocery Gal has a pretty fancy pocketbook, all while avoiding big box stores. It’s not that big box stores are always bad, they do have their moments, but they’re just not as interesting as so many other places out there.
