Definitely soy milk and orange juice. For the former, I wouldn't finish it right away, and it would go bad quickly, despite the expiration date printed to be 2 months later. For the latter, I already consume more sugar than I should, so I just stick primarily with water, and drink fruit juice from soda dispensing machines if the meal comes with it.

In both cases, they've gotten noticeably more expensive. Tropicana even changed their carton to be slimmer, so instead of 64oz, it's really 52oz.

Orange juice- upsets both of our stomachs
Mangoes

boxed mac and cheese-I make it homemade
popcorn
tomatoes-hubby can't have and I don't care for fresh tomatoes except on a tuna or turkey sandwich
fresh peppers-green/red/yellow-they give me agita
yellow onions-too sharp tasting I only buy sweet onions
broccoli rabe-found a bug in it.( I know, there are bugs in all foods)
cold cuts-too salty and pricy

  • Canned vegetables - blech.
  • Pre-cut vegetables and fruit. I know it's convenient, but I find them to not be as fresh or sometimes have an off-putting taste.
  • Jarred salsa - I make my own and have for years.
  • Fruit juice - I've never really been a fan, but used to pick up some orange or apple juice for the husband. At some point, he stopped drinking it regularly and so a container would sit mostly full well past the expiration date.
In general, we've stopped buying most "convenience"-style food. I do keep a frozen pizza or two on hand for crazy days with no time to cook, but I've found it to be easy and cheaper for me to do a lot of cooking on Sundays, then refrigerate/freeze and re-heat through the week as needed.

Yea.. make salsa too. Ditto on convenience foods except frozen pizza. I do buy some jarred salsa. I don't buy much jelly or jam. If I find a good buy on peaches or oranges, I' ll make my own.

lunch meat occasionally. I bake turkey chicken and roast beef and ham so I always have sandwich makings.

I buy eggs from my neighbors but I am getting ready to give raising chickens a try and maybe a goat or two.

Wow, you definitely put me to shame! I do buy lunchmeat weekly for my husband. He loves his turkey sandwiches for lunch every day, and is quite fond of Boar's Head, so I do buy that. I'm not really a sandwich eater, so I usually bring dinner leftovers for lunch.

We don't really eat much jelly or jam, but I do keep a couple of jars hanging out in my fridge for visitors (or when I spontaneously decide to make biscuits, which isn't often).

Whenever meat is on sale I buy 2. I must admit I buy bologna for those fried bologna sandwiche craving.

I do buy boars head pepperoni for homemade pizza. Guilty pleasure. .
