How we got here
Holy cow! I went to the grocery store today prepared, and it was a good thing. Not only is gas through the proverbial roof, but food is rising too. I needed brown sugar, but the 1lb bag at Food Lion which is usually $.59 is now $.93, about 45% more. A 1lb. block of Kraft cheese is $5.39. Milk is still high, $4.19 at Food Lion, $3.99 at Harris Teeter. So what's a mom to do? Well, I created this blog to discuss that very thing: saving money, playing the money game, meal planning, creating new meals with leftovers, home cooking, etc, etc, etc. So please, join in and leave your comments, recipes, ideas, suggestions, thoughts on the matter.
