Some details

I wanted to clear something up here. I am not a vegan, I'm not even vegetarian. I eat eggs, chicken, turkey, some beef, shrimp. No dairy. I do eat vegetarian dishes often and I use meat as more of a garnish than a main entree. That said, most of the blogs I read on a daily basis are vegan/vegetarian.

I've been updating my price book. Prices do change over time as well as sizes change (sneaky stores!) I found out today that a local Albertsons is closing in October. I've found since the price book I hardly ever go there. It used to be fairly cheap but about 2-3 years ago they went to one of those 'preferred customer' cards and the prices went up. Even their sales aren't very good. My preferred place to shop is Fred Meyer's. Lots of healthy vegetarian options and good prices.

Frugal pays off

I've been doing the frugal thing for a while now. I've learned a lot. Now that money is tight for us, it's really starting to pay off. I know what prices are good and jump on a good deal. I've stocked up on things, so we don't have to run out and buy something full price just because we need it right now. We are eating healthy and have lots of good food available.

I guess I'm saying, stick with it. It will pay off, sometimes right away, sometimes in the long run.
