A Week In Delaware On A $20,000 Stipend

1 p.m. — Homework session is over, so I drive to the grocery store. I buy bell peppers, carrots, green beans, tomatoes, ginger, serrano peppers, tea bags (chamomile, rooibos), bread, potato chips, pita chips, soy milk, chocolate milk, shredded cheese, yogurt, and eight Amy’s Broccoli & Cheddar Bowls. All of this would have cost me about $70 in Wisconsin. I’m still upset at how expensive Delaware is. I’m told it’s because it’s the East Coast. I can assure you that when I lived in Massachusetts, no one I knew ever thought of Delaware as being part of the East Coast. It’s the Mid-Atlantic at best, or maybe even the South. There are houses here that were part of the Underground Railroad! $98.91
