I didn't come home with nearly as many bags of groceries last week as I usually do for the same $. I only go every 2 weeks and cut and scrimp where I can. But this is getting foolish, when milk and gas are almost the same price. We can drink other things, I can make iced tea real cheap with tea bags. There is no substitute for gas in your car. It won't be any time soon getting the second car on the road at this rate. I make my own detergent, use cloth napkins, cloth for monthly cycles, free range the chickens, dry food for the cats, plant a big garden each year, raise chickens and turkeys for meat. Any other ideas for this one income family of 5?
