  • Two adults. A Toddler. And an Infant.

    We could live off of our current groceries for 2-3 weeks. I could definatley see us doing that.
    We buy groceries for two weeks, so we reduce the amount of time we go to the store. It saves money and headache.

  • I'm geussing we could go for several months, and I have seriously cut back on my "stocking" over the last few years. I was raised on a farm, and I learned to shop like you might not be able to make it to the store for a month or more. My husband made fun of me a lot when we first married, but now he appreciates our well-stocked cabinets and even acts surprised when we actually are out of something.
