i left a post on this topic this a.m. but can't find it so am doing it again. WHAT ARE YOUR WAYS AND IDEAS ON SAVING $$ WHILE AT THE GROCERY STORE OR CLOTHES SHOPPING?? With the price of gas and everything seeming to rise, we need to be smart! a gallon of milk runs between $2.99-$3.99 here in western mass. at the grocery stores. i always buy mine at the convenience store because (today for example) it was $1.99/gal!! eggs have gone up: about $1.99/doz. i was at a pharmacy yesterday and saw them at $.99/dozen, grabbed em! sometimes i go to the thrift store in town and poke around. have found unbelieve labels in there with prices that are under $5!! this is a fairly new experience w/me. let me know of your good ideas!
