Dh drove me to Food Basics this afternoon, and for those of you who don't know, Food Basics is a low end/basic grocery store, nothing fancy. They had Heinz Baked Beans on at 49 cents so wanted to get those, sold out.
However they also had bread on for 2/$5, that's $2.50 a loaf, which is crazy. I had 50 cent coupons, luckily, as I picked up six loaves of bread. Dh takes sandwiches for lunch and we eat quite a bit of bread, plus I like to have bread in the freezer. So out of my grocery total of $22.62, $12 was just for six loaves of bread. Granted I probably won't need to buy bread for two to three weeks, but even so.
I honestly don't know how people manage to feed a family on less than $100 a week? I know I have spent over $50 this week, and I still need fruit for dh's lunches next week.
