Tabitha3319 , I wanted to mention that my wife did try out what you suggested about buying items in bulk, and she said it did save her a little money. It didn't save her so much this week, but it should save over the long run. She didn't do it on some things, because certain food items would spoil, but where it was practical she bought in bulk. That was at the local Wal-Mart. I almost forgot to mention it till I saw your post about going to Good Will.
Yay! I'm so glad!
Another tip is to not shop at eye level. The cheap items are at the bottom or the top.
Also, many times generic and name brand products are made in the same factory.
Thanks! I'll tell her to check those things out too. There's no sense spending more than what is necessary.
