That's when I have to go. It's not any more crowded here than the rest of the month, probably because I can go early in the am.

That is how it is here- it is really dependent upon the time of the day, not time of the month.

I don't really have any challenges shopping. I try to avoid what I know is unhealthy and get what I know is healthy (fresh food).

trying to find good, healthy, NATURAL, food on a budget can be a challenge... especially in a small town. We have to drive 30 miles to have any real options.

My biggest challenge is buying food that isn't 'too processed'.  I try not to buy things that have too many chemicals or ingredients I can't pronounce. I like for the kids snacks to have 5 ingredients or less.  As you can imagine, it truly limits what I'm willing to feed my family.

Mostly my budget! :-) We feed 6 people on $100 a week!
