Usually I publish the annual Thanksgiving price comparison – which shows that groceries in the Bay Area are dramatically more expensive than they are in our competitors of Seattle and Washington DC (also known as the “The other places where there are Safeways”). You can see last year’s edition here.
Unfortunately, this year I waited too long, and as a result, Safeway started having crazy sales which made direct comparisons impossible. Whoops. My bad on that.
So, instead, this year I will list what I am thankful for, and I hope you share as well:
- That I have this site.
- That the Bay Area is still incredibly special.
- That the comments on this site are still pretty darn good (compared to… say… youtube comments!)
- That people keep reading this site.
- All the fine people who have donated to the site. Most recently – a $50 contribution from madhaus! Thanks a lot! (You too can contribute!)
Of course, there’s plenty more I’m thankful for, but I’ll leave it short and sweet for today.
What are you thankful for?
