After last week,s spending on groceries of 148 dollars I was pleased to only spend 106 this week. We saved by going to 3 stores instead of 2 and I think the only way to get spending lower than that would. E to garden, buy in bulk and keep a price book, none of those things are very beactical on holiday ! I am glad that I cut down on groceries a bit before we left but I still think the FOOD part of the budget for July and August will be quite high. We have. Even trying g to work out why prices 're so high but I not really clear, I wonder if people are paid more ?
