Bananas By The Bunch


I don’t remember the last time I actually weighed bananas before buying them. I usually just grab a bunch that looks ripe and toss them in my shopping basket.

It was different when I was a kid. My mom was a smart shopper. She would weigh store produce and carefully estimate the cost. She always paid in cash with a family grocery budget to keep. This was before calculators and I remember that we had a red clicker we could use to keep track of the costs as we went through the aisles, although my mom still did the math in her head!

Banana is one of the color challenges this week for JNW’s Color Your World Photo Challenge. The color match may have been closer if these bananas were more ripe.

And, since this photo shows something marked by its weight, I will submit it as my second entry (see my first entry here- Bubbles, Of Course) for the daily post weekly photo challenge:

  2. Great picture – great idea! Love it!


  3. Bananas are sold in many ways here in the UK. You can buy a bunch of however many you wish by weight, or you can buy a bag (usually 7) for a set price, or you can get a bag of ‘bananas for kids’ (read small) for about £1, or singly at 15 pence each or a bag of three for 39p. We go for a bunch of five (sometimes referred to as a fist) which sets us back around seventy pence. These days if I hear the word banana, I can’t help but think of The Minions!

    This pic is great for both challenges! When we were first married, I did the same thing your mom did. I’m glad I don’t have to add up the bill as I shop anymore!
