small change toward a rich life

A visit to the Island of Misfit Foods

The first of my two guest posts is up at Get Rich Slowly. GRS has long been my favorite personal finance blog, and was one of the main inspirations for Pocketmint. (Which is sort of a neat karmic circle, since JD credits my online personal journal of twelve years ago as the inspiration for his own web writing.)

A visit to the Island of Misfit Foods” is today’s topic: how I set my food snobbery aside and learned to love Grocery Outlet. If you enjoy the post and would like to see more from me, let JD know in the GRS comments. (These articles are ‘audition’ pieces for a regular writing gig over there. There are six other very strong candidates however, so I’m trying not to hold my breath.)

For those of you coming from Get Rich Slowly, welcome! Feel free to poke around in the tags in the sidebar at right for other posts of interest here on Pocketmint, or subscribe to the RSS feed. I also post to Twitter and you’re welcome to follow me there, but it’s a personal account where I talk about everything, not just personal finance.

Update February 2012: I now have a Pocketmint twitter account as well, and am using it more regularly for pf topics.

    Tried to leave a comment on the GRS post, but the comments would not load. Great post!

    I also liked this post, there is a Grocery Outlet 10 minutes away that I’ve been too chicken to try. I think I’ll have to check it out now. I’m a vegetarian and organic freak so I thought they wouldn’t have anything for someone like me, but you never know.

    You’re by far my favorite GRS guest poster of the candidates I’ve read so far. Really enjoyed this post – it was informative and applicable and I’m in the process of totally revamping the way I shop for groceries as a result.

    Thanks so much – you have a new Pocketmint reader!!
