I have not found a store brand yet that matches name brand. I do try to use coupons to bring cost down and often that makes name brand item less expensive than store brand. I have cut back on family meals out to maybe twice a month and then its not high end resturant. We do buy large quanity meats and package into smaller servings and stash  in freezer.

Doesn't everyone wonder if our politicians are listening? I feels as if I have been asking for help from them for years with minimal response. Who keeps voting these no doers into office?

I have learned that a lot of loud mouth beings are not registered voters.  I read an article Sunday  that stated Donald Trump has a very spotty voting record.

I only buy Nestle chips.  They are worth it.  Use coupons for as much as I can and buy large packages and cook and freeze.  Any leftovers are used the next day or frozen.  Nothing is wasted.  I am so happy I have a freezer.  Can buy when items are on sale and I have a coupon and can freeze things.
