Passover shopping

I went to my local kosher specialty store to get some items for the upcoming Passover holiday. Having made a Passover price list for the items at Publix, Winn-Dixie, and Walmart, I compare this store's prices and bought the items that were less here.

What's more important is what I didn't buy. There are all kinds of treats available for Passover - all sorts of candies and chocolates, cakes and other sweets.  I chose not to buy those.

I also didn't buy the many kosher for Passover items like instant mashed potatoes, tomato sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise, salad dressing, and the like. It's only eight days - we can either make things from scratch, or just go without.

Here's what I got for $29.39:

1 5-lb box matzah @ $5.99
2 jars gefilte fish @ $4.79 = $9.58
1 bottle kosher wine @ $3.48
2 bags chocolate chips @ $2.39 = $4.78
2 jars matzah farfel @ $1.99 = $3.98
1 bag marshmallows @ $1.29

Tax: 29¢
Total spent: $29.39
