  • LOL Orionsgirl! My hubby is actually helpful and breaks down the prices to make sure that we are getting the best deal usually.

  • Use a list, coupons, and buy generic and what is on sale. Search for the better deal if you can things at wal-mart cheaper then the grocery store then do it. I do it like that even if it's 5-10 cents savings it adds up quick.
