When you're shopping for salad fixings, it's so easy to grab a bag of pre-packaged greens that have been washed and prepared for you – but you might be paying more for that convenience than you think.
These are actual numbers taken from a shopper's recent experiment over at The Simple Dollar. It can be tempting to shop based on convenience, but who wants to pay $2.60 for someone else to cut and wash your lettuce?
Shop smart this week, and buy a head of romaine instead of the pre-chopped stuff. It takes less than three minutes to cut, wash, and store when you get home!
