For the first time in my life, I notice prices! I am eating less. I buy items on sale. I cut back, for instance I use regular butter instead of European butter.
I shop often and I shop the sales. I look in the fliers for all the discounts. Today it was asparagus.
I look for items on sale. Especially the buy one, get one free items. We get a 10 percent discount on Safeway brands. I watch the ads for best buys. If something is way over my budget, I'll pass on it. We have to live within our means these days.

I usually won't buy anything unless it is on sale I will buy the generic brand instead of the name brand. If it's on sale, I will stock up. I am on food stamps and it has to last me all month. Jessica Sumner
I am not saving! If you need it, you have to buy it. I work to budget but it always costs more once you get here.
