I wonder what the percentage of grocery shoppers are using Uncle Sugar Sams money?

sure seems like I’m always the lone self-pay in every aisle I get in.

And usually the only one buying stuff on sale.

Saw a young mother buying a dozen CANS of potatoes the other day.

While I realize that some recipes might make that a bit easier, from the looks of the rest of her cart, I’d say I’m pretty safe in saying she had no clue how to peel and cook a raw tater.

why pinch pennies when you aren’t sweating for them?

My former neighbor went through a divorce and now lives on the dole. She gets $800 a month in food stamps. She says she can't eat $800 a month so she does things like have steak bbqs for her siblings or takes a sister to the grocery store and buys their groceries with the card and they give her the cash.

When married she was solidly middle class, she comes from a solidly middle class family. She is college educated. She has no problem with her new life style, she says "why should I work for $12 or $13 an hour and lose my medical coverage with the state?"

I’ve been a homemaker for over 50 years and didn’t even know there was such a thing as canned potatoes.

Never too old to learn,I guess.
