My husband and I used to be salaried employees but when the company decided to downsize we moved to another job that pays hourly. Our life style changed drastically and we set our priority by making sure we put food first on the table. Since we are receiving our pay every two weeks, we are trying to stretch our grocery budget that will cover our needs for 2 weeks. We try to avoid buying bulk grocery items from the wholesale store if we can’t consume it within 2 weeks. If there’s no great deal on branded laundry detergent, dish detergent, toilet cleaner and toilet paper we switch to another brand that covers our budget. How about you, do you control your grocery budget too?
