It gets harder each month, when the prices of food keep climbing up, and your money coming in does not! Well, that is why I have to shop frugally. I make 3 lists.
We also get our cleaning supplies at the dollar store. They work well and are much cheaper there. My husband and I do well on our small income but in the summer our two teenaged grandsons stay with us and we want to feed them well. So we start months in advance planning and buying for their stay. I buy the "yellow tag" meat since meat is our biggest grocery store item. I freeze it and when I cook, I make things that go a long way such as spaghetti, gravy and rice, jambalaya, ect. We live for summers with them and always want them to enjoy themselves and look forward to next year with us.
Admirable! I also use every discount, free product, and club priced items at my walking-distance Safeway. There is time involved adding items online to the club card . One thing I buy at Costco is the coconut oil; Safeway has only small jars of this must-have.
Thank you for your feedback!!
I have been on a pension for 10 years but my income will drastically drop by about $800 when I turn 65 in a few months so these tips were so helpful. Some of them I already do but I can always use/need more. Thank you all & take care Coreen
