30. Today I'll Visit a Seasonal Farmers' Market
That's set up in one of the tonier neighborhoods in town. I'll buy a carton of eggs, that were harvested in the last seven days. I'll pay $3.50 for a dozen and they'll last me a couple of weeks. I could buy two dozen and, with my skills, have a high-mid restaurant-quality omelet every day for over a week, and suddenly you might not think $7 seems so much.

I know it seems expensive, but I'd rather pay this guy, who personally takes care of the birds, that extra than give 89 cents to a corporation that's paying my congressmen to continually look the other way.
