The purge is a complete removal of all non-primal items from your cabinets and fridge. Don't think of it as a loss of money, think of it as a change of life. If you have friends that are not going primal then maybe you could donate all your food stuff to them. I am sure they will enjoy free food, who wouldn't, but if no one wants it then there should be a local shelter for you to donate to. Good luck on the purge.
