 GRANA here;
 Justlike everywhere else,grocery pricesMoney mouth here are  still too highYell!!!!!!!!!!!!
As you all do; we  do our best  to  cut costs, where we can& are pleased when we manage to spend less& stlll areable to eat well.Snce we love our fruits &  veggies& make them the main part of our diet, et, we  are  enjoying( in-season) price breaks on that  part of our diet.I've noticed that  longer cooking meats( stew, pot roast  are lower priced  since  nobody really wants those heavier meals while it isstill  rather warm.I think that  women who have outside carreers do not have the time or energy to  put up those types of  meals ] [ or know how to] , therefore  those cuts of meat  are sometimes available  at lower prices American leg of lamb  which is usually $7.95#- & $9.95# is only $4.99#
I'm tempted to buy a cple to freeze but  mydoctor suggested that  the recent  elevation of my cholesterol level  might be due to  the roast lamb we've  enjoyed  since the spring lamb sales.

The prices here continue to rise.  I'm spending more on groceries, even though I am very careful, buy items on sale, use coupons, etc.

Buy extra Milk when it is on sale.It can be frozen up to 3 months when freezing allow 1" head space as it will expand when frozen.Thaw frozen milk in the fridge.
Milk is good 1 week past the sell by date.Keep milk inside of fridge not on the door it needs to be in the coldest area in the fridge.Don't waste if the sell by date is nearing one week later use in puddings or other recipes to use it up.I always have stale bread in the house so I make croutons,bread crumbs and bread puddings just to use it up.Milk and Bread are both too expensive to let go to waste.

i agree with all of you. prices are crazy. bread is 4.00 dollars and milk is 4.50 a gallon. foods that our parents (& the rest of oldies) remember to keep food prices down are no longer cheap enough. like potatoes, hot dogs and the things like that. growing a garden is no longer cheap to do what with the water prices & plants and seeds have gone up like crazy. i remember being raised on in a pot of green beans, potatoes & ham. many cukes, tomatoes, blackberries, squash and things like that it helped my parents to save money. and with a lot of things you have to have choices-better for you bread or cheaper bread, for example. and just why is it that we get charged more for products that have reduced fat (some of the fat has been removed) and less sugar products (half the sugar). then it's more choices- the better for you stuff or the full fat or all sugar.i live in northern california in a small town where there's not many choices for shopping. you go to another town about 1/2hr away to do big shopping. the stores there have bulk in items in bins & that helps somewhat. tried to buy cat food for my kitty from a bin and i had to give it away to an animal shelter. is my cat spoiled? yes! humm... we eat meat 2 or 3 times a month only & those days i plan for! i do like my bbq steak!  it's only me & my 33 year old daughter. our budget doesn't allow for much wiggle room. i recently bought a 5 pack of panties & the price is crazy! my town doesn't have a shoe store (just walmart) and we have two grocery stores. we eat a lot of veggies and all kinds of grains. barley, bulger, wheat berries, oatmeal & others. and i like beans of all kinds.

Vicki mentioned buying a 5 pack of panties and paying a lot.  If you are fairly small, buy girls instead of ladies.  I get girls Fruit of the Loom in size 14 in a 6 pack that usually has a couple bonus pair.  They will be on sale for under $5.  Most ladies sizes and choices are about that much per pair.

I'm going to get a real bargain tomorrow when I shop.  I just printed out VBB's carnation coupons.  One of my stores has the "buy 10 items and get $5 off at the check out".  There are 10 items that I can use this time.  One is Carnation milk.  After they subtract the 50¢ as they will for
each of the 10 items, it will be 69¢.  I'll use my coupon that is $1 off 2 so subtract another 50¢ and I'll get a can of Carnation for 19¢/  Now that's a bargain.

When you visit a shopping location/store that is new to you learn /ask if they accept coupons. I stopped at  a store last week for a walk thur/visit and asked and the answer was yes. I did not purchase anything however I will return with coupons to use.
