Either prices are going up or I'm not shopping as good as I used to
Not that long ago, I used to be able to do my weekly grocery shopping for a family of 5 and not pay more than $100 (if that). Now, I'm finding myself going over $100 easily.....even up to $130. I'm thinking that maybe I'm not planning as much as I used to but at the same time, I am also trying to get healthier foods (i.e. more fresh fruit, veggies, and white meat). I know that makes a difference but I need to revisit my shopping lists.
Also, there are not nearly enough coupons for me to use. Most of the time, I see a coupon and it's "buy 3 and get $0.75 off"....yeah, i'm not buying 3 of those. Also, I find that I can get the store brand cheaper too.
What's your trick for grocery shopping? About how much do you pay per week (average)?
