I’ve been reading a lot of posts that list certain grocery stores, certain products, etc. And that is wonderful, am glad to hear that they are out there. My problem with these are many:
- Small town USA doesn’t have all those stores, we have three grocery stores, one a mom and pop place, and two others that are chain stores, but don’t stock odd brands until they get 20 requests for them.
- The price of these is so prohibited for people who are on strict budgets. I get $88 every two weeks for meat and paper products and food…doesn’t go a long way when the item is $3.98 for 10 items. I can do the math, it’s about 40 cents a piece, but feeing just me…and then my two strapping young men is tough on that kind of budget. Have to be real careful where the $$ goes.
- Buying on line has not proven to be any cheaper, as you are then paying S&H and that eats it up royally.
So…I’d like to hear from people who are on REAL budgets with families to feed out of that budget how they are handing all the fresh food, and papers, and meat for their families, and still sticking with a lo carb diet.
I’m looking for ideas.
