    I am like you. I change my meal plan or substitute if the veg/fruit is too expensive for me lol.

    Default Fresh produce - what do you buy even when it's expensive?

    I usually buy what's in season and my partner is a green thumb so grows lots of strawberries, herbs and tomatoes in our tiny garden. I'll often buy blueberries though even if they are really expensive. I'll only buy fruit/veg from woolies or Coles if desperate we get it at the green grocer or markets which makes it a lot cheaper. I also buy free range eggs and meat, usually from a specialist butcher and that's something I won't compromise on. I just spend less on other things.

    I've paid $3 for a single stock of lemongrass before, crazy but if i have already meal planned and I need it I'll buy it, unless there is an easy substitute.

    I do pay extra for organic apples, organic carrots and organic zucchini.

    Also I will pay up to $4 for mangoes at the start of the season - I wait all year for mango season so by the time they start appearing on the shelf I'm desperado.

    Blueberries & strawberries.

    My kids love them. I feel bad saying no to buying fruit just because of the price. If they are asking for fruit over other things in the supermarket by god am i going to buy it

    I must admit I don't really look at the price. I just buy what looks freshest and I won't buy imported.
