Here's another grocery tip. When the Y2K scare was going on we decided to go ahead and stock up on dry products and other items that might be needed. Even though nothing came of it we kept from getting into those items. Later that year my husband got laid off from his job and could not find work. In a small town it's very hard to steady work. Boy, were we thankful for the stockpile of stuff we had.
I was working only 3-4 days per week as my employer would allow so that took care of electricity and such. The food and the gas we saved really came in handy as well as the candles and batteries, as our area in this small mountain town tends to lose electricity in the winter.
