You need more fresh fruit/veggies.
I know, its a pain because a lot of stuff spoils, but sometimes in the freezing process/canning process some of the beneficial compounds present in fresh produce get destroyed.
I usually go do a big shopping trip every 2-3 weeks, and then once a week I'll go do a produce-only run that takes about 20 minutes.

In the stickies there is a great grocery list. Print that off and stick it on your fridge.

I'd say your wasting money on bottled water unless the area has very low quality water.

i mainly only buy bottled water for convenience for my work. drink good water at home from the fridge.
