I just got back from my weekly grocery run and I am not kidding when I say I'm dancing a jig!! If your area is like mine then you, too, are suffering from "sticker shock" at the check out line. I am trying my best to save where I can so that means clipping a lot of coupons and looking at the weekly specials and planning my meals accordingly. The grocery store that I usually shop at has been having this special that when you buy a gallon of their store brand milk you get one of these:
After you save up six milk tickets you get a gallon of milk for free! Today I happily handed them my six free milk tickets and brought home a free gallon of milk! YAY! Somehow I think that glass of milk is going to taste even better today:o)
BTW:I live in Virginia and a store brand gallon of milk runs me $4.49 and a dozen large eggs costs $1.99 (ugh). A gallon of plain unleaded gas is up to $3.09. (Because of this I try to get all my errands done in one day.) I thought it would be interesting to hear from y'all about what your prices are like in your area and also what you are doing to keep up with the ever increasing prices.
