  • Midday Coffee: Surprising Whole Foods find

    I was surprised to discover recently that Whole Foods has the best every day price on conventionally grown bananas – 65 cents per pound, compared to 67 cents per pound at Ralphs and Vons/Pavilions. Costco is the cheapest of all, at $1.49 for three pounds, but for me, Costco is a once-every-two-months kind of place, if that. The gas station is an exception – I go there every week, as it’s at least 10 cents per gallon cheaper than other gas stations around here. I go to Whole Foods pretty regularly, so I’ll plan on getting my bananas there from now on, unless they’re on sale somewhere else for less or I’m planning a Costco trip.

    Above the Law contends that a law degree is not “versatile.” I tend to agree, in that the transferable “skills” you learn as a lawyer could easily be learned in other ways that don’t cost over $150,000.
