Shopping With SBA Money

From time to time, SBA gives away free coffee and donuts during the morning and during the hour before evening classes start. But that's Coffee and Donut Day. The SBA wants something different and therefore proclaimed tomorrow to be Junk Food Day. Given a budget of some hundreds of dollars - more than a couple, less than several (can't go into specifics or they might impeach/censure/paddle me and that would be a crying shame) - Brian and I set out to do our damn best. So this is what we came up with:
  • 10 bundles of unripe bananas
  • 3 boxes supposedly containing 36 oranges each but for some odd reason, and very fortuitous for us - yes, it was fortuitous... perhaps, they each had more than that.
  • 4 6 lb. bags of Granny Smith apples
  • 3 10 lb. bags of Washington Red apples
  • 3 6 lb. bags of Fuji apples
  • 2 boxes of fruit snack things
  • 2 boxes of Chex Mix bags
  • 2 boxes of snack pack Pringles
  • 1 box of 100 lollipops
  • 1 box of Doritos snack bags
  • 1 box of Cheetos snack bags
  • 1 5 lb. bag of chocolates
  • 1 5 lb. bag of hard candies
  • 10 dozen donuts
  • 240 cookies from Diddy Riese
Needless to say, we came in way way way under budget. Even better, Brian is transporting all of this stuff in his car, none of it in mine. And for those who may think that fruits do not qualify as junk food, let me remind you that I live in LA where any food containing calories is considered junk food not to be eaten.
