Nope: bad stuff ISN'T so cheap! Load up your grocery cart with mega-packs of soda, chips, sugar-loaded cereals, crackers, frozen dinners, etc. and you pack one heckuva walloping checkout tab!

Skip the soda and other beverages, stick with water, fresh freggies, basic dairy / meat and I think most folks will have spent no more money and quite possibly less!

Well I don't think the message is not to buy the dirty dozen, just to be sure to clean 'em...be darned if I"m going to pay an arm & a leg for apples...can't believe I'm already paying a buck a pound...lol!

Darn! I like a lot more of the dirty dozen than the clean fifteen - though avocados are one of my favorites on that list. When we were in CA in Feb. it was start of avocado harvest season (which is long, about 6-7 months) and we had some of the freshest and most flavorful avocados ever! I think there are some varieties you can get locally there that have more flavor than the Hass ones that you see in the grocery stores here, but I still like those too!
