When gasoline prices first started shooting for the moon, it was a shock to my system, as I'm sure it was to everybody. The budget had to be re-adjusted and Cliff needed more "allowance" each week for gas money.
Then the gas prices began to affect groceries. In my whole life, I've never seen grocery prices rise as fast as they have in the past year. And the media folks wonder why there are a record number of foreclosures?
I have a lot of heart-healthy, bean-and-rice dishes, and I can see I'm going to need to rely more and more on those... not for health purposes only, but to keep the groceries affordable.
There's a website that is really helpful to those of us who struggle with the rising prices. I keep the link on my Blogger journal, but just to make sure everybody knows about it, I'm sharing it today.
It's the Hillbilly Housewife. Click HERE for good advice and affordable meals.
